I have taken a couple pics and will get a few more as I go. I just have to have the girlfriend upload them on her computer later tonight. I might even take a video of the tractor pull because it should be kind of interesting. To pull it from the top can you do it all as one unit tranny and all it looks tight getting past the left side motor mount. If not can you do it as one unit through the bottom?
You can pull it as an assembly, just make sure to move slow on that boom and have somebody to guide it out. I've also used my loader to pull engines but I would just hook a chain-fall onto the bucket to get it out.
Get some adjustable straps my friend. The motor has a slight left tilt to get it in picture perfect and not ruin any of the parts still in the bay. Take your time and those ajustable straps will save you hours!
Good idea I'll grab one from work. Do all the transfer cases have the same gear ratio or should I use the one that was on my replacement motor? I'm basically putting the car back to stock so it's drivable and when I get out of boot camp I'll be on here asking for a parts list to build this thing up right.
So got another question. I have the stock turbo that was on the replacement motor and I have a 16g turbo from eBay that was on the crank walk motor. Wich one do you guys suggest putting in? I was thing the stock one would be better for the fact that it was on this motor before and Im kinda putting everything back to stock including the clutch. So just shoot me some ideas please thanks
If you haven't ran the 16g, stock turbo. (14b or t25, whichever you have)
If you have ran it, and you have the supporting mods, 16g.
I will advise you to make sure the feed and return lines are cleaned out before installing, if your not buying new. If you are, you can get away with re-using the oil return line, as long as its in good condition.
I have a place in my heart for turbo civics.
Just to verify, did you actually measure crank end play the correct way or did you just base it off the damper? Reason being the stock damper is known to fail, causing excess play, which many assume is CW.
