Default Re: Project in the works:

We got a lil bit of progress done in the basement yesterday. We organized the middle shelves that well be using to hold all the parts, finally got ALL of out tools pick up and put back where they belong, and we hung up one of those tiny drawer things to hold ALL of the little stuff to keep it all organized. The organization was the big thing to start. We got as far as pulling the war pump (which was trashed! never seen a water on a Honda with that much play in the sealed bearings, scary), the oil pan, oil pick up, windage tray, and rear main cap. Heres a few pics for u guys:









The sunroof assembly that needs put in:


Thx for lookin,
Dallas

OK, so we finished pullin everything apart tonite. Came apart without any issues, didn't see any spin marks, or hot spots. No discoloration, all the bearings still looked somewhat new actually. All good things so far, except for some 4 year old oil smell, (gross!). heres a couple more pics of everything torn apart, blocks ready for the machine shop. Before anyone asks, were not havin anything miked out cuz like ive stated before, this isn't a "go-fast and break records motor".... just startin off small for now, next motor build will be the high dollar no short-cuts build. On a side note, start my new job at Amana Whirlpool here in a few weeks!!!! enjoy:

In the long run, it'll all pay off. It's best to do it the right way, then have to deal with issues later on.

Your coupe looks so clean. Makes me miss mine

Keep up the great work.

Took the internals to the machinist on Friday and got them back today... holy shit these parts are clean! Also told me he didn't see any signs of excessive wear on the crank or rods, awesome! So, oil pan, oil pick up, windage tray, main caps w/ bolts, rods and pistons, and rear plate. Total, $45

Default Re: Project in the works:

Got a nice big update with plenty of pics for you guys!!!! So to start off, in my last post i told u guys we took the internals to the machine shop. So first ill show u some before and after pics of the internals:

Before:






And $45 dollars later:


So the next thing we did was take the block in and had the following done. Clean it, de-glaze cylinder walls, glass bead, and decking. (only had to take .004 off!)

Before:








$200 later:








So while that was being done, i took the liberty of cleaning up the injectors and putting the new fuel o-rings on. OEM goodies!






After:




Not pictured are all the goodies we got from xenocron.com and the nearby honda dealer:
OEM ITR oil pump
OEM oil pump o-ring
OEM oil pick up gasket
OEM oil pan gasket
OEM piston rings
OEM front and rear seals
Clevite "race" bearing set (std size)
Mishimoto fan switch
Mishimoto thermostat
ARP headstuds

So today we put the long block together, which made my weekend!!!! First is a side-by-side of the old LS oil pump to the new ITR oil pump:


Then we got started. The PCV box, crossover tube with fan switch and thermostat was first:


Then we did the rings and got the pistons in:


Got half the bearings in and lubed up:


Set the crank in place and got it all lubed up as well:


Put the other half of the mains in and tqd those to 56 ft/lbs:


Then we got the rod caps on and tqd to 26 ft/lbs, along with oil pump and rear main cap:


Next was windage tray and oil pick up:


Dont forget the oil pan :)


Flipped it over and got the headstuds in, (favorite pics):




Then we got put the HG on and tqd the head down (80 ft/lbs is scary lol):


Please leave comments, thanks for lookin!

I love your engine build. It's coming out great.

Mind asking where you got your parts, block machined and hot tanked at?

Its way too long since ive updated this thing.... The block was machined and hot tanked here in cedar rapids at Sperry Engines, and the head was done at a place called D&R Engines. Still no pics, but i can finally say the motor is in the car!!! Clutch feels great, mounts feel great, no knocks, no leaks, doesnt burn oil, started first try too! Had a small oil leak from the oil pressure sending unit, but we replaced it with a different one and it stopped. The catch can setup seems to be working too, which i absolutely love how it turned out!
