I have a 2009 Honda Ridgeline with a 3.5 L V6 and decided to do the timing belt on it write it up on TDC the crank and the cam closest to the radiator match perfectly but the cam closest to the firewall was one tooth off I rotated it several times and came up with the same thing is this normal or should I bring that cam up to the timing mark your help would be appreciated

You may be off by one revolution. Make sure you are on the compression stroke. I found the video from "South Main Auto" on YouTube to be very good. It was done using a Honda Pilot. But had identical engine. I did mine a year ago. Still going good. It was NOT that complex. I did buy the socket he recommends in the video, to remove crank bolt. Then, I also went to "Canadian Tire" to get special tool needed for the installation.
