    Re: Progress thread

    Are the prelude carb and FI transmissions different?
    I know the SI one will work on the accord but don't know about the carb one.

    Re: Progress thread

    Any ideas on if a carb prelude trans will work on the a20? I actually found a manual Prelude trans from an '87 but it's a carb one. Need to verify before buying =P

    The 1.8 engines use smaller axles, so you will want to skip that.

    I believe the bellhousing has the same pattern, but it's actually smaller since the Prelude has a smaller clutch or flywheel as well.

    Re: Progress thread

    So really to make it work I would have to take accord axles and have a shop put the prelude ends on them that go into the diff.
    Even then what would I do for a clutch and flywheel? Use the prelude ones?
    hmm. Thanks for the information.

    So lesson learned, make sure your carb top hats are fully screwed on...
    Never even thought to check them since they were brand new but all the screws were not fully tightened. Had fuel seeping out the tops, now my carbs are dirty

    Yeah something like that... Assuming the Prelude flywheel bolts onto that A20 crankshaft, which it may not...

    Engine ready to be pulled. Everything is disconnected except that fuel line but that won't take 10 seconds.

    Header detatches by slip joint so that will stay the way it is. It'll come apart when lifting engine out.
