    Default Need help with timing 98 civic d16y8

    I purchased a 1998 d16y8 vtec that had the head reworked and didn't have the timing belt on it I got the crank up on tdc and lined the cam up on the marks by putting a metal ruler on the head and lining the marks up also adjusted the valves to spec .25 exhaust and .20 intake I started the car and has a rattle and knock sound so I checked the timing again and made sure everything was lined up and it looks right if I retard the distributor to the farthest position it quits rattling and knocking does this mean the timing is off by one tooth if so do I just need to take the timing belt off and move the cam counter clockwise 1 notch to have it right this is my 1st time messing with anything besides Ford or Chevrolet
