    Alright so I am going to wait to make sure these ball joints fit this time. curious if the other Rockauto brands fit or if Mevotech was just selling the wrong balljoint...

    Make: ACURA

    Model: CL

    Submodel: BASE

    Beginning Year: 2002

    Ending Year: 2003

    Drivetrain: FWD

    Ball Joint Position: Rear

    Application Notes: Position: Rear. BALLJOINT

    Quote right off mevo website.

    Where are Mevotech parts manufactured?
    All Mevotech parts are Engineered in Canada and designed in-house in our North America headquarters. With Mevotech you'll never get reboxed parts from other manufacturers you'll just get the best, original Mevotech parts.

    Thanks for searching that on Summit's unusual activity detector, that indeed does look like some unusual activity

    I haven't studied the control arm yet but which way does the ball joint go in picture one or picture two.

    Yes ill take the third pic for 50$ Alex!

    Its a ball joint used on lots of Honda/Acura type cars according to the Summit page so makes sense to use a part you could get anywhere.

    Re: 86 Honda Accord turbo build

    FYI. I tried ordering some Mevotech control arms from Summit. They list them on their site, but they don't stock them. Once you order, they refer the order over to Mevotech for fulfillment. Basically, they're always on back order, but they don't tell you this until AFTER you pay for the order. Then you get to wait...

    Time for a long-overdue update. winter is basically Over and it's time for me to get to work on this thing. Recap I acquired a Sei rear disc conversion. Several days before ready to do the installation. a chain reactions of breakdowns went down. Some what, completely making me lose interest. as multiple radiators and alternators going out. 3 out of 4 tires getting destroyed. So I just been kind of laying low taking it easy saving little Parts here in there. More updates will be coming real soon

    So I've been staying pretty busy making B18 swap harness OBD1 harnesses, coil on plug harnesses and fuel pump relay kits to try to keep me motivated.

    See, nobody here cares about turbos or coil on plug here, at 3geez we only care about rear disk brakes.

    Your harnesses looks too similar to the one I am going to have to make for my buddy that's going from an obd2 b18 engine harness to an obd0 car, to an obd1 ecu. When does a mfer just go standalone?

    I forgot to mention that my cheap dual eBay half size radiator finally went out. I had pretty good luck with it so we're going to try this cheap eBay triple core one now. With the OBD1 a12 reverse-trigger fan relay bypassing the fan control timer and fan switch. 86 Honda Accord turbo build-20210502_045038-jpg

    That Florida water eats radiators.

    With rads you want Aluminum thats a plus but the big thing is 1.250" tubes. Better heat transfer and stronger to run more pressure if you have too.

    That fan deal looks really trick. Is it a PWM controller? There usually really expensive.

    On the fan my demon 2 Neptune RTP ECU software there's fan radiator control option it allows me to set the temperature I want the fans to come on and off. With pin A12 of the OBD1 FANC acts as a ground trigger. And that goes to a reversed ground trigger relay setup

    Yeah its easier on relays to switch the ground and less electrical noise with DC.

    Yes I first pushed out the long metal sleeved knocked out both ends of each bushing. The new bushings have to be cut down approximately half inch each side for them to completely go into the control arm. And then reinserted the metal sleeve

    Those bushings are tricky. I've bugged up more than my share trying to install them.
