well, as some of you may know, i bought elijahs accord, and have dropped my own motor in there and failed to get it running. i finally learned that the way to do things is nice and slowly rather then doing multiple things at once. i tried doing a wire tuck and megasquirt all at once before the car was actually running. so after hacking up the harness, i had to run out and get another one and finally had the time to give the accord some proper attention.
here is the dashboard removed, along with a few things like the heater core, blower motor few misc bits here and there.
here is the old wiring. if i were to take a close up picture, you would notice that alot of the wires are extended, that was part of my wire tucking project. im sure the wiring was correct and something else was the cause of it not running, im just eliminating one potential cause. also by replacing the wiring, i got myself another main relay, i will be taking the old one apart to make sure there was nothing wrong with it though. also worth mentioning that honda put it way up top and the dashboard had to come out for me to even get anywhere near it
everything wiring related has been stripped out the front. the carpet and interior scheme wasnt really my cup of tea, so itll all get replaced hopefully. also the dashboard will need to be replaced as it was a severe casualty from when elijah has it broken into during storage, and when i took the dashboard out. its hard to believe that this things never had a heater core done in its 350,000km, i know this cause all the wiring clips were still attached to the dash which is why it took forever to get out. as it sits, ill be stripping the remainder of the interior, and throwing it in the garbage/basement before i move ahead
this will be the new wiring that is going in. dont even remember what it came out of other then an 88/89 model. dont remember if it came from an automatic or 5 speed, not even sure if it matters. all i know is, that wiring harness is going in one way or another.
ive got plenty of stuff left to do in the accord. ill try to keep this thread updated as much as i can. my goal is to get it up and running and out of the garage by springtime so my skyline can go in there. so far, i need to find a complete interior, hopefully the 2 tone interior. ill also be replacing the carpet as mine will be turn out completely. another thing i need to do is all the coolant lines in the engine bay need to be redone, along with putting the power steering lines that elijah cut off back in. ive been sitting on this project for nearly 4 years(?) and it would be nice to finally get a chance to drive my pride and joy.
