Default Z6 timing belt on Y8?

hey guys, im wondering if you can use a z6 timing belt on a y8 motor. I need a new one for my y8 and i have a brand new z6 one sitting right here. it would be nice to use this one rather than buy a new one, but if it doesnt work it doesnt work. And when I say work I mean work well, not half assed Thanks

i thought timing belts had to match the head. IE z6 belt only w/ z6 head. Y8 Belt w/ y8 head. I remember reading about this when researching the mini-me vtec head swaps on the D-series blocks. thats why you bought a new timing belt.


part #'s the same?

not that i dont believe the honda certified, but i just remember reading this. Shine some light.

1992-1995 D16Z6:

14400-P28-004
BELT, TIMING (104RU24 A-555) (UNITTA)
$35.18

1996-2000 D16Y8:

14400-P2F-A01
BELT, TIMING (104RU24 GB-333)
$17.25

Different part #s. Then again, they might have the same amount of teeth and match the head and block.

D16Z6 Timing Belt has 104 teeth (taken from BauleyCivic's Mini-Me).

I heard the same thing, that the z6 belt has a few less teeth and will throw off your timing, spend the extra 20 bucks and get the y8, safer decision in my opinion

Thats what I kind of thought when I made this post. I remember the y8 having a few more or less teeth so i figured how could the z6 belt with with a y8 if it has more or less teeth. where did that price quote n **** come from?
