Just looking at pics as to how things are routed... timing marks, etc.
Liked this pic.

It's a scary belt too.
Life is 6 years, 60K miles.
Mine was replaced 18K miles ago, 10 years ago.
It's got to come out.

I've got a couple of oil weepages I'm chasing, and I have to take the cams out to replace the lost motion assemblies, so the mill is coming out.

I'll probably separate the engine / trans and replace the rear main, and trans input seals while I'm there...

My buy list is:

SOS LMA kit
Timing belt
Cam seals
Cam end caps
Tensioner pulley and spring
Revised cover
Water pump
SOS oil sender relocator
Rear main seal
Trans input seal
Valve cover gasket
Oil pan gasket

That's enough.

I removed and mounted some new tires to the little mower.
They lasted 750 hrs.
Love my tire machine as bead busting is impossible without it.

What year is the NSX again?
I'm thinking it's got to be almost exactly the same as my '90 CRX-Si?
The Rex is the same 60k mile rating
If I count the original that was in the car, I'm now on my 3rd belt at 112k miles
I tried to have it changed at about every 50k, not so much because of deterioration, but because of stretching
The 1st time it was changed, deep in its track period the mechanic was amazed at a- how good the belt looked, but also b- how much the damnn thing had stretched, thus throwing the timing off...

I so love the fact that the Frontier and the S are both chains, and of course the VFR is gear driven, belts are a PITA and I'm glad to see they are somewhat falling out of favor
