Hey John i have a question on my d15b7 when i bring my Cam to TDC my crank is not lining up with the single line (next to the other 3) i can’t get both to match only either or , when i turn my crank to TDC i put my dipstick in cylinder #1 to verify piston is all the way up and it is not , I’d say it’s all the way down and I’m just trying to get motor in TDC before removing crank

Is that torque mount in bad shape? Mine on my civic is in bad shape like yours. Is that what could cause my car to shake while its at idle? I noticed it moves A LOT when i shift through the gears. This is my first honda and thought it was a motor mount
