    You cant start the car without the main relay it's what makes the fuel pump work. I dont understand what a flat head would fix. Sorry to thread jack

    It wasnt negativity at all, it was simply meant for you to think twice. You are more than welcome to do what you feel like with the car, I'm only sharing my opinnion just like everybody else, the only difference is that I apparantly dont agree with the others. I honestly think wood is a good original idea but would never consider using it myself. I respect originality in whatever form or function that may be.

    Re: Jigabu's Engine Rebuild/Restoration Thread...

    Damn it's been a long while..

    Accord is sitting out in the snow, covered of course, but none the less just sitting...

    I'm so sick of body work!!

    I've been planning another accord build, but something that hasne't been done before..

    So i'm contemplating, swapping the motor, suspension and brakes out of the SEi into an lxi with a decent body or something.. Then using the sei for the new project.. But I don't know.. I'm so broke right now, even the similist ideas aren't that easy, lol...

    However, after the suby dethaws in the garage I'm gonna pull it back out and pull the accord in..
    I'm gonna install the Eagle Adjustable cam gear I just sitting.. And I'm gonna start putting on the itb's.. I said I was gonna wait til the body was done.. But at the rate I'm going with that, my grandchildren may never see it done!!
    So if itbs work and everything looks good I think I'll be looking for a new 3g chasis, maybe a hatch....

    On a side note, Is it possible or has any one done this.. SAFC 2 or NEO, with the stock obd0 set-up? Does anyone know if I'll be able to hook my NEO up without converting to obd1?

    safc2 no problem at all. i had one on my car. they are a breeze to hook up. as for the NEO, I'm sure its the same story you just won't use the vtec wiring.

    Re: Jigabu's Engine Rebuild/Restoration Thread...

    i don't have any write up, but I can probably help you out with which wires to use. my install was on an 86 lxi so I am not 100% sure on wiring differences, but I can look at my harness and tell you how I wired it up. The SAFC2 is sold now, but I used vampire taps, so there is evidence of where everything was hooked in.

    Let me know what you are wondering and I will try to shed some light if I can...

    Re: Jigabu's Engine Rebuild/Restoration Thread...

    Well here she is with no intake mani at all..


    She's only got about 50hrs of run time so the ports are still gorgeous!!


    And Drumroll please........


    Here they are installed..


    Got everything hooked up as far as iac and other intake sensors, throttle cable, fuel..
    All the Vac lines are just mocked up.. I'm gotta get some supplies together.. I'm gonna replace all the blue vac lines with the stock black silicon again.. Once the vac lines are hooked up correct, I'll be able to test start it..

    edited for lack of pics

    Re: Jigabu's Engine Rebuild/Restoration Thread...

    Was the strut tower bar for a carbed accord? I only ask because it looks like it would clear the carb.

    You camera or lighting makes for some interesting colors in your pics.


    Did you attempt to seal the throttle plates better or did you leave them alone? An easy way to see the gap is to hold a light behind the plates so that any light shining through the cracks will show where air will leak.

    Re: Jigabu's Engine Rebuild/Restoration Thread...

    I made the strut tower bar for the efi.. it's to clear the cold idle on the back of the intake..
    It's might clear a carb , i'm not sure..

    As far as sealing the throttle plates, no I didn't have them machined any more.. I'm kinda counting on the slight leaking action to control the idle..

    The closer I get to start up.. The more I doubt it's gonna work.. But I put to much work into it to let ideas and possibilities stop me now...
