from what I know through just working on cars with my dad who used to stock car race a long time ago, and buying crappy cars and fixing them up, I know that you have to:

loosen the ditributer cap and turn it left or right depending on what kind of idle you are getting(lean or rich burn). You can check this by checking your spark plugs. If it is not a golden dark brown then it is not burning correctly. Dark plugs means it is running to rich and clean plugs means it is running to lean and there is blue smoke coming out of the tail pipe.

Note, I don't know which way to turn the distributor but don't turn it left or right more than an incrument to prevent missfiring and possibly burning a hole through the piston.

A chalk and some timing light would be useful and handy. The timing should be located on the door i think.

The timing on a 1999 Honda Civic can be adjusted setting the distributor to the correct angle. Setting the distributor forward to much will mess with original settings of the ignition.

pull the distributor out and turn the fork one half turn and put it back in. hondas are typically only a half turn to correct ignition timing

what do you mean timing specs. your question is a little vague. are you talking about cam specs or ignition timing. the cam you line up the marks on the gear to the head and the ignition timing is about 15 degrees before top dead center

User Avatar

there are different types of timing, cam/ignition. get yourself a haynes manual. www.honda-tech.com is your friend.

It has a timing chain... therefore it won't need to be replaced... if I am correct?

To set timing correctly on a 1992 Honda Civic the distributor must be installed at the right angle. Install the distributor at the correct degrees to ensure the timing is set properly.

Incorrect ignition timing or damaged valves would make a 95 Honda Odyssey sputter and backfire. Backfires are directly caused when ignition occurs at the wrong time.
