Default 16v nic nacs 2.0

Hey working on getting my 16v running right, and I need to degree the cams. If any one has any info for the stock b234f cams and recommendations for overlap and what have you for an N/A engine. also I am currently running a block distributor if anyone can tell me what spark plug wires they are using. currently I am using the stock b230f wires but they are a pain in the ass to plug and unplug.
thanks

NGK HE57 plug wires (94 Honda Accord) work well with a "crab" distributor cap in a 240.



If you are getting the engine running as a baseline, I would just stick with the stock cam timing using the marks on the valve cover if you do not have the plastic timing cover.

Thank you for the pictures. I have the car running now but lining up the timing marks with the valve cover is not accurate enough because the cams where to advanced, so I retarded it 5 degrees and my intermittent misfire went away. I would like to get the cams as close to stock as possible with a degree wheel and I dial indicator, it would be helpful to know some information about the cams so I can double check my work.

Have you had a lot of material removed from the head? The marks on the valve cover are the same as the marks on the plastic timing cover AFAIK.

The cam bolt is M10x50mm.

I timed the stock cams straight up, seemed to work the best for me

I'm not using the stock timing belt set up, I have lower compression everything's different. so the stock marks will get it to run but the cam is too advanced with my set up.
