Reminds me of my first civic!!! Looks pretty clean all round man!

So if any of u guys have missed the WTB section..... im having some serious issues with my t bracket and i need help!!!!! ive tried 3 different t brackets and they all line up the same. closest i can get is rear bolt and very bottom bolt, this leaves the front top bolt more than a half inch off. Im running a hydro LS trans and B18B1 bottom-end, rear mount is the factory mount for the civic, but was told that they are the same mount just need a Bseries t bracket. Please guys, my mind is completely blown by this and cant think of anything else......... thanks in advance.

We started to pull things apart slowly. Put the car back on the ground, pushed it out, picked up/organized the mess of tools, swept the floor, and pushed the car back in. I then pulled the front bumper, the hood, and diconnected the wiring harness. I also plan on pulling the fenders cuz i dont wanna be leaning on them when we pull the motor. Im also gonna be spraying the bay, soo........ yea. Anyway, ill try to take some pics as i go and post em up.

Default Re: Project in the works:

Got a couple updates for you guys.....So we pulled the motor and trans, and got the engine bay pressure washed to get all the nasty grease and grime mess off. The next step will be to get it scuffed up so i can re-spray it. Not pictured: i also sprayed my wiper arms flat black and it makes a huge difference. lol. The new motor should be getting headstuds shortly. After we pulled the motor, i took a 10lb sledge to the front core-support to see if i cld get it bent back out and i think it worked, (still gotta test fit the front end to be sure). We splurdged a lil money and got a new set of headlights as well, only cuz pulling the old ones we broke a bolt, and both corner lenses had chips and cracks in them. Now i just need sum1 to come do a wire tuck for me :) To scared of messing sumthin up to do it myself...

I got the engine bay re-sprayed...... dont laugh too much, i know it looks like crap but its better than it was. i used a 1500psi pressure washer to clean it, then used that red scotch brite to scuff everything up and used 2 cans of X-O rust gloss black spray paint. Then i couldnt wait, so i mocked up the new headlights, lol. Also decided to wash it. I waited about a week before i put the headlights in and washed it. Im also gonna try to do that headlight harness tuck this week, wish me luck. on to a few pics:

Before:

Default Re: Project in the works:

on to some pics........

First thing i did was strip the loom and expose the wires and i got rid of the power steering and A/C clips, and the washer fluid pump wires/clip:


i then took the lil plastic grommy out:


I then cut a hole in it to protect the wires:


Now the rest of the pics is finished product, but the wires were ran inside the frame rail.


How the wires are ran for the head lights/driving lights:


All done!!! next is the passenger side:

Wow its been way to long since i updated this...... no pics but plenty of reading for you guys. So the car sat for a good 3 weeks before we went back, and im sorry i ever let it sit that long. Came back to MICE!!!!! I Flipped shit to say the least. Chewed a quarter size hole in the carpet, and made a nest under the back seat! The seat it self is ok, but some of the stuffing is gone, not a lot tho. So far weve caught/found 5 mice in total, 2 of which were dead in the car. we have 6 glue traps, 2 of them in the car. 2 kill traps in the garage, and 4 poisen boxes, and 2 of those in the car. Meanwhile it looks like a bounce box exploded in the garage to keep them away.

So the sunroof has been messed up for awhile now and we decided to try and clean the tracks as they were very gritty and full of gravel dust/old white lithium grease. That was scary at first but we got it put back together, yet it still wants to act up. might be in the market for a complete sunroof assembly for a 92-95 coupe, lol.

So because of the mice and the sunroof job the interior is a mess. We were also able to sell the old long block plus all my automatic stuff for a profit. We then torn the head off and took it to our local machinist to get the look over. The vacume check wasnt good, 1 cylinder didnt hold anything, while the other 3 only held 4-5in/vac. We ended up getting a complete valve job with the original valves, (they were still good), they machined the seat and the valve to match, new supertech valve seals, re-surfaced (.008 off to get flat), and cleaned. Spent a good $235 on the head, so now were back to waiting for more green stuff to buy head studs and a head gasket. Thats it for now, keep the comments coming. Thx

Dallas

You can always rivet it on. Would be just as strong as the spot welds that hold it. Then later down the road if you ever decide to you can take out the rivets and have the holes welded up. Or you could pay a mobile welder to come to your place and weld it up real quick.

Default Re: Project in the works:

Finally decided to jump at the idea of doing a complete rebuild on the motor. Simply cuz we dont wanna put this new head on, get it in the car and have it burn oil.... that would suck monkey butt! So the plan is to just do a simple OEM rebuild, including having Sperry deck the block, de-glaze the cylinder walls, and hot tank it. Again, try to remember its not gonna be a 500+ hp beast, which is why were not going all out on it. Read a thread the other day that made me feel hopeful for our power goals. This guy made 266/250 on 7psi on a bone stock LS minus headstuds. Anyway, heres some pics of the head:

Top side:


Bottom side:


Exhaust port:


Intake port:
