    didnt even think about the car being stolen. im just saying it wouldn't hurt to be a bit cautious even if you say "who would steal this car". it can happen to anyone at anytime, just a heads up.

    re: Have a quick question? Ask it here!

    ok this is a stupid question:

    How do i remove he Auto Transmission?

    i know you remove all the bolts and mount but i see the CV axle if im correct where the trans and engine meet. will i require a special tool to do this task?

    and how much does the trans weigh?

    It weighs A LOT!!!
    You're going to want to bring it down with a jack. And please mark dont do this mod until you've got yourself a nice pair of jack stands.

    You need to remove all bolts on the bell housing, rear T bracket, and trans mount. Axles, trans cooler lines, and starter needs to be removed also.

    Look up the 5 speed swap in the how to's its pretty straight forward bro.

    better lock it, people are hauling off,or stealing older cars and chopping them up just for the scrap metal, scrap is high right now, the police really won't care about a 25 year old Honda, that seems to be their general attitude, if a tweaker sees an easy mark like an unlocked old car, they aren't going to care about getting caught, just getting that couple of hundred bucks to get high

    re: Have a quick question? Ask it here!

    I don't understand, haha. Anyway, are the sedan handles plug-and-play, so to speak? I was thinking about getting/installing just the right side for now since I never unlock it from the outside and waiting until I get power locks to get/install the driver's side.

    Yes plug and play. I can upload a picture if you'd like I tried mine on to see how they looked but since they're not paint matched I removed em.

    Nope, not sure why either as the Aerodeck and Hatch were made in Japan I believe.

    no coupes or hatches were made with fixed lights. i think the areodeck takes the place for coupe and hatch.

    Oooooooh, another question:

    I know that the sedan's tail lights changed with the facelift, but did the hatch's change as well? I swear, some hatches have one bulb on each side and some have two...

    re: Have a quick question? Ask it here!



    Is there ANY true point to that thermowax valve i've circled in red? I've broken 3 now in a 6 month period, so i solved the problem of poor engineering(Plastic isn't made for 140*F+.) I blocked that bitch off with a 3$ brass end cap, compared to $50+ to break it again sooner or later.
    Does it serve ANY purpose, that i'd need it?

    BTW, i know that's of a carbed A20. It's all i could find. All my F.I. info covers NOTHING on the thermowax valve.

    I believe it has something to do with the advance, but I can't remember off the top of my head

    There is no thermowax valve on the FI cars.

    Actually there is. I'd bet $100 on it. Any parts store can verify that. I've replaced the sorry mthr fkr 3 times, now on my 4th. Maybe the 88-89's didn't have them, but my 86' has one on the thermostat housing right before the thermostat, AND the other two F.I. preludes(86 and 87) both had the exact same thermowax valves which i used the valves from til i broke them. It's a really shitty design, as plastic doesn't withstand high temps very long without weakening and it's right there by the vacuum advance to where you brush it, and it breaks in two. Can anyone explain to me what it's for exactly? i just connected both vacuum lines together like the valve is always open. Seems to affect nothing at all...
