    Front main is pretty straightforward. You have to remove the timing belt and crank sprocket to access the front main. Remove it with a pick, and reinstall the new one making sure of proper depth. Reinstall everything

    There is a guide on how to do a 60k. This is basically everything you need to do to get it apart minus the crank sprocket removal/installation and seal removal/installation. That is straight forward anyway. I like to use the square end of a 1/4in drive extension and a hammer for installing the seal.

    I would not use the team 3s guide just because it talks about marking the belt and many people think thats necessary. I would just use the manual.

    It is old school and he was asking for a how-to. The manual can be confusing to some people that don't have experience with them, especially the Jap translated ones. A lot of people still mark their belts, even in professional shops I still see it. There is nothing wrong with marking your belt. I am not trying to be an ass here, but there are several ways to do several things, your way is one yes, but may not be the best for others either. It just seems to me that you are overly strong on your opinions when it isn't needed.

    Marking the belt seems to confuse more people than help. Thats why it is not a good method. Aligning the marks to the proper spots is just simpler and makes more sense.
