What's the problem with the timing belt? Did it slip? Did you just replace it?

I guess you don't have a Z6 distributor?

The diagram shows you how to tension the timing belt. Only turn the crank pulley counterclockwise -- otherwise the belt won't tension properly. The adjusting bolt can be loosed and tightened through the access hole in the lower timing belt cover.

Did the belt slip before or after the Z6 head was put on?

It seems that you need a Z6 distributor. Our engine swap experts will probably provide more details. You don't need VTEC to run the engine.

I don't know where you got the idea it was the same. If you had researched on the mini-me swap before you did it, you would know that every single write-up on the B7/Z6 mini-me swap says that you can't use the B7 distributor.


You can drive with the P06 ECU for now, but it would be wise to get the P28 ECU eventually. Did you wire up VTEC and just not swap ECUs, or have you not done the wiring yet?

I hope you didn't try using the b7 timing belt either, it has one more tooth than the z6 which could cause your slipping...
