    Re: Jays EF - lovers are happy

    Just for a giggle, here is the reason why the clutch failed at Masterton.

    Clutch pedal rubbing line over period of time =

    and fluid everywhere in the cabin till we found the problem

    Re: Jays EF - perished clutch line

    Well, it's been a fair while. Debt all paid off (for how long.... ? ) Now the car has a new home at work which makes things far easier to do. So goals for summer are to get the interior wiring sorted. I've decided to get pro's at AES Electrix to sort wiring out, leaving me with only essentials. All the ABS, sunroof, cruise control the whole kitchen sink is still in there from the Prelude. While wiring is being carried out I decided next best upgrade is ECU so am waiting for an S300 to arrive from the states.

    I have a custom castor arm being made up at WeCan engineering (same place that made the axles). Reason being I want a larger kink placed properly in line with the crank pulley to give it proper clearance. So finally I might be able to get her a little lower especially in the front. Have researched the custom arm and spoken to certifiers and found that it will not need to be re certified as long as the arm has exactly the same dimensions and mounting points.

    Have the collector off of the car and have the sump out, will be posting pics on welding the baffle plate in, should get these up by next weekend. Bumper is off being painted, secret colour scheme for now, don't think many on here will like it but will see

    And now for a couple of pics - Interior wiring, oh and planning to put half an EF dash back in there, Prelude dash was cool and all but my knees taking a caning on it being 6ft5"


    Much easier to get stuck in with jobs, all the tools you need...

    Re: Jays EF - Summer work begins

    Right - got the sump baffle welded in after work tonight. Yes the welds are not pretty at all, im a learner, and two different thicknesses of metal made it tricky to move the heat around evenly. The last thing I wanted to do was blow a great hole in the sump But hey, they'll hold and I did them myself so I'm stoked. Oh and I should add that Ive had this plate for almost a year and a half.... They always just sit around.. lol

    Right another update as requested. Yesss! Custom castor arm is ready and has been picked up *cheers loudly* heres a few pics of it

    Against existing arm - you can see the bend is started earlier and angles down further than the existing kink


    Coated in etch primer


    Top coat of black


    Installation pics to come tomorrow when its completely dry.

    Ok, I got the sump back in today but no point posting pics of that. Stripped the manifold off to remove old heatwrap and found this...
    Exhaust leak


    What had happened was the nut had bottomed out too far on the stud, basically only allowing 3 threads to grip the head. F*cking the threads and leaving it loose as a goose


    Thought it would be saveable and it was. Tapped the threads with 8mm 1.25 pitch


    Tightened new stud in with a stud extractor


    Voila


    Quite cool to fix your own stuff like that on the cheap. Other things done today not worth posting pics on are: removed both wing mirrors for painting, removed spoiler for painting and cleaned up exhaust system surfaces. Oh and found an ECU suitable for Hondata chipping. Just have to bridge resistors to convert to manual.

    Cheers, Jared

    Re: Jays EF - Castor arm! etc

    Gah, quite unmotivated after last night to say the least. But forced myself in to install the arm. Fair bit more clearance but will see what happens under cornering, the engineers said they would take it back and re-do it if it still hits. Re-assuring, which you'd want after spending decent coin on it.

    Re: Jays EF - Castor arm! etc

    Sweet, got a bit done yesterday. And solved the speedo cable issue I thought Id run into with going back to EF dash. I went to parts world and scored a EF dash, speedo cable and a few other bits for $50.

    Test fit of dash


    H Series Vehicle speed sensor


    With electronic sensor removed


    Custom made bracket and D-series cable speedo attached


    Oh and I re-wrapped my headers in black this time (arms have finally stopped itching)

    Yeah have thought of that bro, it is another job tho. There isn't much room for the alt loom on that side of the engine, could hitch it to the cambelt cover? Ideas? Maybe best to do when I get the relocation to A/C position bracket then do at once.

    Re: Jays EF - cable speedo conversion

    Have a look at my build for the alternator wires, Joule routed them underneath and just a simple cable tie to a bracket not used anymore.
