    She moves. Drove it to work. Taking it easy on it until clutch sets in but she's going to be a ripper.
    Still have some issues. Need to bypass the key interlock, signals aren't working, half the interior is still apart, just things like that.

    Re: Progress thread

    Probably shoudn't have but couldn't resist giving it the beans on the way home from work and holy fuck does it pull hard, especially 3rd gear. 1st and 2nd rip so fast but 3rd seems to really take off. Maybe just me, but the carbs seem like they are even louder with the manual trans lol. They are louder than my exhaust at some points. Which my exhaust is the header to straight pipe to a flowmaster 44. No converter or resonator and I can still hear the carbs over that. Fucking love it.

    Re: Progress thread

    Started belching oil smoke at startup and after long periods of idle. Must've borked one of the stem seals when replacing them, now I have to go in and find the culprit. doh!
    Coolant is clean and it only does it at those times so got to be the stem seals.

    Nah, no smoke under throttle unless it's been idling for a bit and at startup. Classic symptoms of stem seals. I've got another set laying around so I'll go in and do it again.
    Oil is clean as well, still caramel brown and doesn't smell burnt.

    Stem seals replaced. I did bugger one the first time, the little spring was missing on one of the exhaust valves. woops.
    Went ahead and did the set just to be safe. No more smoke!

    How did you keep the valves from falling into the engine?

    Re: Progress thread

    Actually a couple did, lol.. They were on cylinders set to TDC though and I have a magnet pickup tool that is the size of a pen that fits perfectly in the guides. The valves wont drop right away after taking the spring(s) and retainer off cause after 284k miles, the valve itself is worn down a bit to create a slight lip. It is really only when removing the old seal that it becomes a danger. At that point I just make sure to keep a finger against the valve to maintain some pressure to hold it against the guide.

    I do have a few guides that are worn but that will have to wait until next year.

    Thought about using some string but couldn't find anything small enough to work so tempted fate.

    Re: Progress thread

    So funny story... got mine running almost a month ago.. Literally two days after I got my vehicle driveable, the wifes car throws a fucking rod with no warning. She has a 2006 Ford Escape that only had 111k miles and the pos threw a damn rod.
    On the plus side, I put plenty of miles on mine taking her to work and back to set my clutch in. On the down side, hers cost us 3800$ to have an engine put in and some other things it needed.
    So looks like some of my plans for the Accord have been pushed back a bit >.>

    Looks like Wilwood still makes a 4 piston caliper set for the 3g. Suddenly I feel like my vehicle needs new brakes.

    Re: Progress thread

    SO I had this thought...
    What if you were to take the header I have (OBX 4-1) which has slip joints and flip it. Cut the runners off the flange and flip them, weld it back upside down. Get a 4-1 collector with a turbo flange and have it fit to the 4 runners. You've got yourself a turbo manifold. Granted it would be super high and sit above the hood line but still...
    Just thinking about things to do later on down the road. The idea of turbo'ing has popped up. Wouldn't a twin DCOE turbo be fun?
    They make plenums that mount to them for it.
    Just shower thoughts I guess lol
