Default timing belt on 93 civic

I'm having trouble getting the timing belt on a 93 civic. I was wondering if their is any tips or tricks. My dad and I both tried for about an hour with the engine out of the car and neither of us have never had a problem with a timing belt. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Silly question. Is the tensioner loose?

Ya tentioner is loose. We tried having the belt off half way to give a little more slack and taking the crank pulley off but nothing seems to work

how about pushing down on the tensioner and as you do so tighten it back up in the lowered position and install the beltl. Things would be easier if you leave the crank pulley off until you install the timing belt or do you mean the crank gear.

We did push the tensioner down and the crank gear. Sorry. The problem is when we push the tentioner down we can't put the bolt back in.

leave the bolt in loosen the tensioner(you can use a screwdriver on the spring end of tensioner and push down)once down tighten the tensioner in the lowered position.
There is no need to remove the tensioer bolt for the tensioner to move
