    Re: Matt's Old School Honda Thread - picture dump motor/wheels- 29/7/12

    nah i've given up saying "'it'll be finished by xyz" always means it takes longer haha

    list is getting shorter of whats left to do:
    - re-fresh the driveshafts -> re fit
    - Fit replacement fuel pump/filter -> install new line in engine bay
    - Final wiring sort out/tuck -> plug in engine bay fusebox/injector resistor box
    - Acquire new silicon joiner for throttlebody -> sort out all the joiners -> possibly fit intercooler now
    - Sort out wiring for oil presure/temp/boost gauges -> fit/mount guages
    - Refit front panel / bumper
    - Tune

    Sooo.. probably another 6 months haha, but hopefully not

    Matt's Old School Honda Thread - driveshaft woes - exhaust on 20/08/12

    Got some spare time this weekend to get a bit more done.

    Started by looking at the driveshafts I've got

    Stripped them down


    This was one of the ones that came out...

    Because of the angle they're on once lowered, this ones worn the end of the shaft

    What it should look like (left)


    Have the parts to make two decent ones, just need to arrange some new boots.


    Also fitted these to the front, getting camber into these old torsion bar hondas is an issue. So I got the crush tubes in the top hats offset, while also replacing the rubber with nolathane


    Also had a bit of a mission finding which shifter linkage to use.. 1500cc and 1600cc are different... and some gypsy sold me a 1600cc with the end cut off


    Shifter sorted, Exhaust sorted.. new wheels on


    Teaser with new exhaust on, and new wheels

    Cheers, yea bolts came up good. Next time I'd take heaps rather than just one reasonably small lot. I paid $30 for the ones I got done, but they said would be $50 odd for an entire buckets worth

    Matt's Old School Honda Thread - EB BC - 28/08/12

    Look what finally arrived!


    BC Suspension specially built for the EB 1-2-3 Chassis. Big thanks to the UK 1stgencivic.com club for working together with the UK supplier of BC to get the factory to build some suspension for these old cars! There is virtually nothing else available, so to get a taylor made, height, damper and camber adjustable setup for under 2k is great.



    Front comparison


    Rear comparison


    Got it all in last night, huge improvement, need to set the camber/ride height up though

    Next update will hopefully be driveshafts back in the CR-X

    Re: Matt's Old School Honda Thread - EB BC - 28/08/12

    well a day of all round disappointment...

    there was no way the 14" volks were working on the EB - with the slicks + factory guards...

    Bolt on flares were too ugly - and still require the rear guards to be cut out. Weld on guards too expensive to justify... so for the moment the volks will become the road wheels - and will keep the various 13" wheels with semis / slicks for the track...

    Next was this



    New adjustables wound right down....

    INSUFFICIENT SLAM

    shock body is bottoming out in the mounting sleeve, spring seat is hard up against the mounting sleeve. Looking at options to remount top hats, or run softer springs...

    Re: Matt's Old School Honda Thread - Fuel and airdam 29/09/12

    Slow progress lately due to working weekends fml...

    But had this one off so got stuck in at the workshop!



    EB as it was sitting. Unfortunately the BC's came from the UK with a odd ball spring setup - 7kg front, 3kg rear.... so changed out the rears for some 350lb, and looking to swap the fronts for some 450lb. At the moment looking to buy some longer fronts, as I don't want to run keeper springs if I can avoid it.

    Got stuck in and rolled the rear guards after fitting the bcs.

    Heat gun + old roll cage section + hammers + patience = win (so long as there's no bog in your guards)

    Its mugen..... just not for a civic... think it works


    Excuse the shit cellphone and instafag photos

    Made some cardboard templates up to get ally plates cut to reinforce the edges of the splitter, so it won't fall off and get run over.


    Also finally got around to addressing the fuel issues in the EB (It's always had the original carby fuel tank, which previously, once pressurized sprayed fuel out the breather pipe! And also the tiny carb fuel lines)

    New surge tank, high pressure supply pump and alloy mounting plate. Used rubber washers and cap screws to try and limit vibrations from the pump. Plan is to sort new lines tomorrow, and find a low pressure supply pump during the week.
