I've done timing belts several times on my 86, and 84. A couple of times, I've used aftermarket belts, but I don't like them because they've been noisy. So I've bit the bullit and bought OEM, and they've been quiet. Is it because aftermarket belts are inferior to Honda, or am I putting them on wrong?

If you are using gates belts they are the same thing as Honda OE. Anything else I don't trust.

Like Dave only used Gates and OEM and find no difference (except price) ... And don't find it necessary to test others...

Ok, I've always sworn by Gates, but where can they be found? I know my 84 will be due soon for that fun little job.

Napa belts are made by Gates. Autozone, O'riellys and Advance Auto carry Gates belts. I got mine at Amazon, T070 for the '86, think yours are the same, for less than $10 each and free shipping.
