Here is some help when installing timing belt & tension procedures:
1990-95 4-Cylinder Accord and 1992-95 Prelude
See Figures 10 and 13
This bolt is one of the tightest on the entire car. The pulley must be held in place while the bolt is loosened. One trick is to wrap an old drive belt around the pulley to hold it steady-don't try this with a belt that is to go back on the car; it will be stretched or damaged.
Fig. 10: On all engines except VTEC, the belt adjuster arm must be locked in place using one of the lower cover mounting bolts.
There are two belts in this system; the one running to the camshaft pulley is the timing belt. The other, shorter one drives the balance shaft and is referred to as the balancer belt or timing balancer belt. Use a piece of chalk or a marker to place an identifying arrow on the belts. The arrow can identify the direction of rotation or the outer edge of the belts. The belts must be reinstalled so it moves in the same direction. Protect the belts from oil, coolant, etc. It's an even better idea to replace the belts at this point.
Always rotate the crankshaft counterclockwise when viewed from the pulley end. Rotating it clockwise will cause improper adjustment and possible damage.
Handle the tensioner carefully so the oil inside does not spill or leak. Replenish with clean engine oil if any does leak. Total capacity is 1/4 fl. oz. (8 ml).
Fig. 13: The balancer shaft must be held in position during timing belt installation.
Both belt adjusters are spring-loaded to properly tension the belts. Do not apply any additional pressure to the pulleys or tensioners while performing the adjustment.
Any other questions, please let me know. Thank you.

I'm not sure I understand your question. Can you please specify a little better please. Thank you.
thay had two tension pully. one is for timing belt and second one is for balancer belt. also two spring one is long and other is short.
also timing belt tension pully had lever which one had hole, should i have match with body pin.to lock lever ? i have to use short spring or long spring for timing belt tension.
that what information i am looking beacuse i not able to put tension on timing belt.
The timing belt tensioner pulley is the outer portion. The timing belt tensioner would be the inside one. You do not use the springs to adjust tension. Are you trying to get tension back on the belt?
Try that other wise you will have to remove the timing belt & restart. You should have tension on the pulley, if not you may need to replace it. Any other questions, please let me know. Thank you.
I would like to know how tension pully and balance tension pully how to install ? thay had two spring .which one goes where. one short or one long.
I am not able to put tension on timing belt. i follow all steps.
after tension on belt i have to align both pully on paraller with crow bar or rod .why balancer pully spring loose. no tension on spring. can please show on picutre diagram because i pulled out both pully from housing.
Here is a better diagram that may help how the tensioner goes back together. Here:
It appears the smaller spring goes on the right side from the last diagram. The longer spring goes near middle of engine area in diagram. If you have removed the pulley tensioner of the engine, there should be no tension on the timing & tensioner belts. You will need to remove both belts & then install the tensioner. If the tensioner will not move any way it will need to be replaced. I hope this has helped. please let me know. Thank you.
