Picked these up this morning.. Amazed with the quality of work done. And it cost me just 5€!!! I was in shock :lol:
It's a service i'll definitely use again :top:
Image

Also got myself a sturdy table to replace the old wobbly one, so i can move the engine from the ground to the table and do stuff with leisure instead of pain..
Stay tuned 8)

You know, It'd be cheaper to send parts over to you to get them galvanized !! You could start a service :lol:

Here's a better picture of the refurbished brackets. Sandblasted and then cataphoresis painted :top:
Image
Out with the old..
Image
In with the new.. Much, much better workbench than the old wobbly one :lol:
Image
Dry fit of the manifolds with the new studs.
Image
Exhaust side they poke out a little more than the OEM ones, but i like it that way.. Also new nuts with ribbed backside to prevent loosening.
Image
Intake manifold side, they are the perfect size, could not look better :)
Image

I've dissassembled my intake manifold and prepped it for cleaning (runners are coated with gunk) and then rebuild it with fresh seals, brackets and bolts :top:

So i had a bit of time this weekend to assemble some of the engine parts back together. I'll let the pictures speak for themselves..

Put on the exhaust cam and torqued it down..
Image

Then i put on the intake cam aswell, put in locking pins for the cams and removed cam pulleys and replaced the cleaned timing belt cover.
Image

Fresh new water pump with a tad of liquid gasket to keep the o-ring in place.
Image

Then followed the new belt tensioner and fresh tensioner spring.
Image

Placed in new cam seals and put back on cam pulleys. After a few issues i placed on a new timing belt.
Image

After adjusting belt tension i started cleaning up the lower timing belt cover.
Image

All back up and looking so fresh. 8)
Image

Degreased the flywheel and put in new pilot bearing.
Image

Flywheel torqued down (you can see the ghetto method i use to lock it down) :lol:
Image

Fresh Exedy OEM clutch in place and torqued down.
Image

That's all i managed to get done, hopefully i'll have some more time soon to finish the engine assembly. So close i can almost hear it purr.. 8)
Next on the list of things to do is to remove water deposits on intake manifold inlets and get it degreased and soda blasted, get the injectors sonic cleaned and paint up the remaining pieces..

Thank you.. I try.. :)

Just picked up soda blasted parts.. These are the final parts i need to have painted to complete the engine.
Intake manifold blasted inside and out, looking very lovely already 8) Just needs a lick of paint and it will be mounted on the engine.
Image

Here's another picture where you can see the intake manifold and rover valve cover that will be painted over the next few days. Got a great idea, hopefully it will come out as i imagined! :twisted:
Image

I've also had thermostat housing and water outlet (the one mounted on cylinder head) blasted, so those bits need paint aswell.

Stay tuned :top:

Fiddled around during the weekend..

First i put in a fresh release bearing, galvanised release bearing fork and brand new spring..
Image

Then i started assembling back the other painted bits onto my gearbox..
Image

Finished off with engine mount brackets
Image

I've applied epoxy primer to the soda blasted bits..
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image

And then some basecoat and 2K clearcoat on it 8)

Tnx lad.. The prelude was in terrible shape before it was reborn :lol:

Anyways.. I've again used cataphoresis paint service.. This time i was even more shocked.. Free of charge for 2 calipers :shock:
Image

Fresh studs secured with Loctite..
Image

Water pipe back up with fresh o-rings.. I forgot to mention i coat bolts with copper grease before reassembly to prevent seizing.
Image

Manifold back on with fresh gasket and torqued down to spec..
Image
Image
Image

IAT, Fast idle solenoid, alternator brackets and some other bits and bobs back up..
Image

Before fitting it back up i've degreased my breather chamber and gave it a new o-ring.
Image

Looking almost like a proper engine now :lol: Over the weekend i need to clean injectors, throttle body, FIT valve and some other things to re-fit them back up..
Image

Just a quick update.. Engine almost fully assembled.. Can rarely find the time to work on it as i've got two finals coming up at UNI.. :|

Managed to source out a top timing belt cover for the engine as i seem to have misplaced mine.. :oops:
Image

Just need to fit vacuum hose that goes from PC valve to breather chamber.. Ordered from Honda, still waiting for it to arrive..
Image

Still missing two water outlets on the head, once i source that out it's go time for the wiring and swap..
Image

I am a bit angry that i can't find the time to clean the TB aswell as it kindof ruins the whole fresh look of the engine, but it will have to do for now..
I have however cleaned the inside of it so it's spotless.
Image

Expected to have the engine inside by the 1st of July :drivegear:

Wensday night i was doing final prep to have the engine put inside my car again.. Stayed in the garage till 1AM :roll:
Image

So after a lot of time, i can finally say my car is not just a shell anymore 8) Big thanks to hakosuka for his help, couldn't have done it without him!
It was a lot of try and error, but after a bit of struggling we got it to this point - almost in place on drivers side :top:
Image

Short while after, we got it in..
Image

Don't mind the red fenders, thats just for some testing i did last night :lol:
Image

What's next on the list now is wire tuck and then i can start the engine after two long years !!
Image

Could not contain myself :roll:
Image

Stay tuned for more :twisted:
