Replace Timing Belt on Honda Accord V6

Is there anyone out there that has experiece in replacing the timing belt on a '99 Honda Accord V6 car? I can get a belt kit from Honda for $184 delivered and it is supposed to include everything needed but the tools.
http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/98-99...item3368fd77d2

PARTS LIST
TIMING BELT (oem # 14400-P8A-A02)
WATER PUMP (oem #19200-P8A-A02)
ALT/A/C COMPRESSOR BELT (oem # 38920-P8C-A02)
P/S PUMP BELT (oem # 56992-P8A-A01)
CAMSHAFT OIL SEAL x2 (oem # 91213-R70-A02)
CRANK OIL SEAL (oem # 91212-P8A-A01)
ALL PARTS ARE GENUINE OEM HONDA PARTS

Or I can drive 1 hour each direction, sit and wait on the work to be completed, and pay Honda about $700.

Or I can pay a local repair shop to do the work, again for probably about $700.

What degree of difficult am I facing to save about $500?

Non-Camaro tech? Never seen this section before. Seems decent enough

I would also pick up a Chiltons or some other repair manual.

While I've never done a 99 Accord, I've done quite a few other timing belts on domestic and foreign vehicles.
The write-up linked is a pretty good outline of the common work/steps needed for most.
Some of the newer are very sensitive to cam position sensor adjustment and signal - I've spend days getting a 2004 Jeep 4.7 V-8 right

Like said - take your time and ALWAYS replace the water pump and other spervice parts while you're in there! Or you'll be doing the same work over again with months

Some trucks
Other V8 things - some of which float
Other V6 things - none of which float
Oh yeah, and 1 "Straight-Six" ...

If a man says something in the garage - and his wife can't hear him - is he still wrong !!!

Re: Replace Timing Belt on Honda Accord V6

Okay, I am down to breaking loose the crank pulley bolt but that booger is holding tight. It humiliates my 1/2" impact wrench.

I rented the tool to hold the crank pulley still and with a 6ft pipe bent a pull handle and extensions about 30 degrees and nothing snapped, not even the tools. I applied some PB Blaster and applied some heat and beat it with a hammer too.

I am contacting my friends trying to borrow a 3/4" impact wrench and 19mm socket. Any ideas?

I will say that a T/C member that goes by 69Z28&SS396 graciously offered to come by and help but it didn't work out. I do appreciate his offer to help.

Re: Replace Timing Belt on Honda Accord V6

Some Honda's I have done in the past, jam a 5/16 inch flat blade screwdriver against a flywheel tooth, if a manual, fourth gear and set the parking brake with an assistant on the brake pedal, and using a 1/2 inch drive six-point socket, bring out/extend the flex handle to the side of the car, prop the end of handle on a jack stand to keep the wrench parallel, visegrip over the flex handle end to prevent breaking the yoke, extend the handle, and with a straight shot to the crank bolt, I stand on the extension and jump onto it. The shock breaks it loose.

The bolt is only torqued to 180 ft/lbs. I think Honda hired the same gorilla from GM who installed the coolant pipe drain plugs in the blocks. Wonder when he'll retire.............

Re: Replace Timing Belt on Honda Accord V6

It's an auto tranny with no flywheel, but I'll try the jumping up and down thing anyway. I am about 175 lbs so I'll have to jump up and down pretty hard to make up for it. You'd think that gorilla would have retired by now. Hope I don't break a leg.......

I did find this information with several ways to destroy your car or hurt yourself or maybe even get the stupid nut off. http://www.v6performance.net/forums/...ce-sticky.html

Re: Replace Timing Belt on Honda Accord V6

I broke it loose! Jumping up and down on the pull handle didn't accomplish anything other than me jumping up and down. I resorted to a shadetree technique. The 19mm socket was held by a pull handle, it in turn rested on some wood stacked up under the front bumper area to keep it from turning. I then stepped inside the car and briefly bumped the starter. The bolt popped loose and I was able to remove the bolt with my fingers.
Tomorrow I will pick up where I left off.

We always called that "Japanese Tight"

They don't pre-lube threads before torqueing in most cases - makes it almost impossible to get them off after a few years of exposure ...

Almost as bad as those old VW rear axle nuts

Re: Replace Timing Belt on Honda Accord V6

Well I have just about finished up the job. Still have to put new plugs in and put the covers back on then fire it up and see if it runs. I am pretty confident I have the timing set correctly so not too concerned about firing it up.
It really wasn't that bad of a job. The worst part was working in the close quarters between the engine and inner fender of the car. It took more than an hour to get the one bolt in that secures the dipstick in place. I finally ground a point on the screw so it would hit the hole more easily and then fastened it in place in the dipstick flange hole with a couple pieces of plastic cut from a drink bottle. Then it securely pointed in the correct direction without falling out and started the threads when I wiggled the ratchet and socket in there.
My hands are all skinned up. I learned a lot and I saved about $500. Thanks for your help everyone.

Re: Replace Timing Belt on Honda Accord V6

Innovation is the key. Never is much room between the engine and frame member.
I hate skinned knuckles, but goes with the job.
Good job, Andrew.
