Question Timing Belt 98 Civic

It's time to do the belt on my wifes' car, but I've never done this before.

It's a 1998 Honda Civic LX with the D168Y 1.6L engine.

I work on my own cars a lot. I'm your typical shadetree mechanic. I can usually do just about anything to my own cars. I've done cluthes, driveshafts, and halfshafts. I've done alternators, and steering boxes. Wheel bearings, and break jobs. Even rebuilt a couple motors.

But, I've only done a timing belt on this type of car once in the past. I helped my brother do the belt on his 89 Honda Civic a number of years back. Probably 5yrs ago. We had to remove one of the engine mounting bolts and jack the engine/trans up about an inch to gain access to the lower part somewhere. Can't remember the exact procedure. Gettin' old. Need a little help.

I've got the following parts so far (factory Honda parts):
Timing belt
Timing cover Seal for the crankshaft
Water Pump w/gasket
Valve-Cover Gasket and Plug Boot set

I don't anticipate abnormal gear wear, so I haven't ordered gears. The tensioner is on order--so I'll be replaceing that.

I plan on pulling the valve-cover and adjusting the valves while I've got it all apart.

Can anyone help--or provide a link to a detailed explanation of the timing belt procedure?

Thanks

look in an import tuner former or post thread there. You would be surprise the things you can learn from those.
