You need the engine up to normal operating temperature and then you need to have a timing light hooked up. The timing light is hooked to the battery terminals and the inductor is attached to the wire on cylinder #1. With the engine running, point the timing light down to the harmonic balancer (this is the big pulley coming off the crankshaft, with usually a number of belts on it). There should be a raised mark on the plastic cover of the timing belt that should line up with the center mark of the 3 tic marking on the balancer. If the marks line up you are fine, if not, loosen the three bolts on the distributor this should allow the distributor to move a short distance back and forth. Moving the distributor will move the timing and you should be able to line it up and then retighten the bolts on the distributor.

Yes, all civic doors from 92-95 are interchangeable. However coupe/hatchback doors and sedan doors are not.

The timing belt marks on a 1994 Honda Civic are found on the cam shafts. The arrows will needed to be point a TDC in order to install the belt properly.
