    actually it was because I was missing a vacuum line motherfucker

    i'm driving a bullet now
    By bullet, I mean there's a vacuum leak with the transmission still so I have to manually shift in my automatic car.

    I changed the oil in the civic today, it looks like it needed it badly.

    I have some advice though, don't change your oil in gusting wind.
    Especially gusting Oklahoma wind, the worst kind. It blew oil across my decently clean engine bay my first attempt to pour it in.



    But i didn't spill a drop pouring the old oil into this milk jug.

    Not today but yesterday.

    New coolant, new thermostat, new oil, new oilfilter and connected the spark plug leads the correct way..

    Now I only need a timing adjustment and it should run just fine :>

    It wasn't a blown head gasket anyway, just the last people who changed the plugs and leads connected in the wrong order

    Trying to get my car running again, got the transmission in but can't remember if I did it right.

    Bradley(or anyone else), do you know if you have to do anything with the clutch fork? I went through an article to get the torque specs for all the bolts and realized that there is a spring on the fork which is meant to hold the fork down the input shaft. Mine was just kind of loose in there and the fork fell off while we were moving it around. I just put the throwout bearing on it, put it on the input shaft and got it on the car..

    It's an Integra so I would figure the b series hydraulic transmission would be similar to the d series ones on your Civics or other cars you've worked on.

    Should only be fork and retaining clip. You do have a retaining clip, right? There is a spring that sits behind the fork on the shaft, but it isn't really required (Although I wouldn't recommend not running that spring). The spring holds the fork against the retaining clip to keep it from falling out. If the spring got oily or just wore out it probably broke long ago, I'd suggest putting another spring in there and making damn sure you have the retaining clip. Floppy clutch forks are the reason a lot of B series trannies break clutch forks, they get hung up and snap.

    B and D trannies are identical except for bellhousing pattern and other measurements. Everything is mechanically the same. But B series are known for the fork ordeal, I don't know what all is up with it, just know that it is probably annoying.

    I still rock dirty D's because they are dirt cheap and a great platform to work with.

    from this summer:
    mishimoto alu rad

    Cx racing IC

    Raptor racing ceramic 6puck sprung clutch with oem pressure plate


    Cx racing IC piping


    on top of that (no picture): ct-26 57mm from driftmotion with a ported wastegate, 550cc rc injectors, lexus MAF, small other goodies.

    Made my car a blast to drive @ 18psi (fuel cut limiting me)

    Now on the recent stuff (not installed yet)
    turbo oil flange gasket kit, pcv hose that I needed, small connectors and vacuum line. Booring stuff here
    new accordeon hose (because I needed one that wasn't cracked):


    Aem uego to have a idea what i'm doing with the safc II




    oil line for the turbo, made out of AN fitting/hose



    before putting it in storage for the winter (local car enthusiast club meet)


    can't wait to install all these and the aluminium driveshaft on the car. I will try to lean the ecu to 11.5 afr when in WOT@fullboost (it is currently under 9:1, PIG RICH).
    If I'm lucky I will be over 370rwhp when I'll get on the dyno this summer

    The clip was in there still when I took it out, I think I'm just getting worried because it feels fine when I press the petal although I haven't driven it yet since I still need to put the new struts and springs on, get the mounting bolts torqued to spec and find where one last bolt goes still..

    This video shows the guy putting it in, I never took the clip out but I'm pretty sure I didn't clip it onto the pivot ball. I think I'll pull the slave cylinder and try my best to pop it on with a big screwdriver because I really don't want to pull the transmission again..

    If it's all together push the clutch a few times and it'll pop on -- There isn't much force required to push the clip over that ball, and if it went together with everything in place then it should have snapped over the ball the first time you pushed the clutch.

    Basically, if the clutch feels good then it is good, you've nothing to worry about.

    Now, if it went dead after pushing it the first time, that's when you know the fork slipped. But there's nowehre to go unless you didn't get it over the ball. Once it's over the ball it isn't going anywhere.

    Small engine lovers' attention ho!

    Finally got the engine home and apart.

    It's definitely an Onan.



    <- That ball on the floor is the ball of ice stuck in the combustion chamber.








    Gonna wash it out and get the pistons/crank/cam/valves out tomorrow.

    The parts for conducting electricity will definitely be taken apart and all the copper sold for scrap.

    The whole thing together is more than 300 pounds.

    That's an understatement.

    It's filled with ice and sand, no way it will ever run, the exhausts are rusted through and the carb is broken to smithereens, but I'm thinking of making a table out of it, or something.

    If nothing works out, it'll be worth quite a bit for scrap.

    Yeah, I pulled the boot and slave cylinder off and felt it pop in and out of place.

    I got everything torqued down, got the shift linkage back in and got the half shaft in as well as the starter and the sensors.

    I almost got it almost all together but I aligned the top hats wrong on my struts and I had to pay a shop to do them because nowhere seems to rent a fucking spring compressor which will work on honda coils.

    I am never doing struts and springs myself ever again, fuck my life.

    On a other note, there have been a lot of issue with the mishimoto and the fanclutch on my car. Where the clearance would be too low and it ended up eating the rad.
    I don't understand, there is at least 3/4" between the rad and the fanclutch

    Today I went to go wash my car, When I jumped back in the car started beeping at me I was thinking "What is wrong with you now." It was a Can-bus warning.

    Apparently one of my headlight's went out.

    After I got to work I bought 2 new H1 bulb's and installed them. The Driver side bulb was fried and extreamly heat colored and a "Eiko" Brand. The Passanger side was still working but looked like it was about to go some what heat colored and a "Phillip's" brand.

    I put 2 new Salvina's in there and I'm happy.

    Fuckkkkk, I got everything back together, started it up and I let it idle down and warm up a bit since it's been sitting for 3 months but as soon as I put it in reverse and let out the clutch the right front wheel kind of juttered backwards and made some popping/clicking noises.

    Ugh, if I fucked up that transmission I'm going to be so pissed.. I don't think an axle would make a feeling like that but I was pretty rough with my passenger side axle when putting it in. It was like intermittent power and felt like the wheel was like wobbling all over the place but I'm pretty sure it wasn't.

    I can't even think of any terms to google this problem either...

    Any ideas?

    Not worth the hassle on my supra.
    Stock clutch fan is a garantee not to overheat because it will never fail.
    those who replaced the clutchfan and installed electric fans have the risk of having one or two fail because of the wiring or just not having suficient airflow.
    Plus, the clutchfan is free, it's already on the car. (and no, you don't free up ponies)

    I'm sorry, but you do. I'm not talking 10-15hp or anything, more like 1 or 2, but removing anything belt driven will free up power. Sure, you're putting additional stress on the alternator, but provided that your alternator can handle an extra 10 amps or so freely there's no reason why it would cause any negatives. Plus you lose about 10 pounds off the front end. Not saying that this applies directly to your car either, just in general.

    the alternator extra charge can be seen when idling, it draw enough amperage to anihilate the physical gain anyway.

    If my car would have come with electric fan I wouldn't remove them in order to install a clutchfan, but in my case it would be stupid to replace it if it ain't broke

    Either way the energy for the fan has to come from somewhere regardless of drive method.

    You may "Gain" 1-2 HP from removing the fan, but it's lost again through the alternator-battery-motor-fan system surely?
