    wow, looks like a brand new engine. where the hell did you get a fork lift?!? arent those pretty expensive? we have one at work, but its a POS. clutch slips, brakes dont work right, yep just one step away from OSHA giving us a fine
    Keep it HONDA. Or at least Asian.

    very very nice! do something about that coolant temp. sensor housing. it doesn't match up with all the bling of the rest of the engine. did you rebuild the engine yourself or you bought it from somewhere like that, and for how much?

    Mmm yes it is very clean but still not running. The forklift is at work/garage where I'm working on the car, we already broke one. Yes they are pretty much POS forktrucks running on Propane with fucked up timing. But they beat engine lifts and you can drag a whole car around with one! It makes suspension work easy too, you can also test load on the car by pushing down with it.

    The thermo-housing is probably the cleanest out of the 4-5 I have around and if I'm not mistaken the one that's meant to go on the A20A3. I'm getting ready to put the rest of that beast together soon. If I had the time/money I wanted to annodize the aluminum parts and paint the rest of the steel ones but I want to get it running again real soon. The red timing belt cover was my choice...I was bored with staring at all black, and the parts shop had only shitty Domestic flavors of hi-temp paint like Chevy Orange and Ford Blue. I'm sure it will all flake off after I start runing it anyway and look like crap. When we first repainted the pullies with the clear coat they were a dark shade of blue and my motor totally looked like Optimus Prime from Transformers. It was tight, but then it went back to black.

    I'm more concerned with keeping the motor protected with the paint and undercoat spray than the actual look or paint scheme. I will sandblast and black-annodize the original A20 valve cover...I thought the A18 (12-valve letter) cover was nice but it reminds me too much of the ES2 cover.

    You can read all the engine rebuild details on my cardomain page. Click on my link if you haven't. If I'm not too lazy than I'll update it again tonight/tomorrow. As we get closer to engine start-day I'm gonna redo the cardomain page, some things have changed with the build. I'll take some pics of my interior work this weekend as well as some exteriors and suspension shots...its all coming together slowly.

    I should be there then end of June through the July 4th weekend but I have to be back to FL by the 5th to tech my friend's show. It would be nice to meet some of you Bay Area birds and blokes, huh maybe we'll go have a beer somewhere in SF. I'm gonna crash at Mum's. She lives down by the Opera House in SF. Hah...if one of you Berkeley boys wants to drive me about town to look for places to rent and give me a tour than the beer's are on me! :alc:

    Talking A20A , 2nd Gen Accord , Weber Carbed

    New pics on an old project. Well here's the A20 finally in my G2 with the header in place and the Holley DGV w/ K&N filter sitting attop the modified sandblasted intake manny. Still have a ways to go with cooling, throttle linkage and reapplying other systems, but its progress never the less. Too bad I'm hands off at this point, working on a car remotely from 3000 miles away is tricky!

    Hey Thanks Geez !!! You guys have inspired me to keep the project going strong.

    When I go back to FL next week I'll have a day or so to take a look at other systems we have to finish. It's getting a completely custom cooling system and radiator. The rear disc brakes have been installed but I have to polish and rebuild the calipers. Its getting the cross drill rotor treatment on all fours too. I need to install the new brake lines and master cylinder/ portioning valve. The interior has been completely stipped except for the black finished dash. We also have to work on fuel delivery...its getting a high flow Python fuel pump, new filters, and probably a regulator. Ignition wise it will be custom and plans for the system are strictly classified, LOL.

    Engine mod wise It's just a straight rebuild with balancing and .020 overbore and .025 head shave. New pistons, rings, seals, etc. It will probably have a little higher than stock C/R but nothing major. Yeah I've got a Prelude Si cam in there too. The tranny is a complete rebuilt 88 Lxi with lightened flywheel (of course), Zoom dual surface clutch running power to the Se-i drive front end.

    The suspension mods are done with lowering almost complete and Koni adjustable reds on all fours. So when its finally finished it should be a fun ride. Thanks for all your nice comments.
