I know its not def not the "best" way. That's just how I did that motor given the circumstances.

B18a/b are the easiest to work on, they actually have a hole on the cam caps that if you put the right size allen wrenches into and set the crank, you're good.

The Honda tensioner self tension itself with the mechanical spring. The trick here is that the slack from all other areas must me move towards the waterpump and tensioner, then tighten the bolt.

Here is a picture of the Cam cap that you can insert in the allen wrench or possibly anything to hold the cams in place as long as it doesn't break/stretch:


Here is the tensioner and bolt location (easiest to access with both timing cover off:


To do list:
- Loosen the tensioner.
- Set top two cams correctly.
- Set crank pulley correctly.
- Wrap on the timing belt.
- Make sure there is no slack from the crank pulley to the front left cam gear.
- Hook up the spring that is attached to the tensioner onto the hook provided.
- Use one hand and pull on the tensioner while the other is tightening the tensioner bolt.
- Make sure there is no slack and every timing mark is lined up.
- Rotate the assembly two rounds or so and make sure it all lines up again.
- Once done, install everything back on and you're good to go.
