Lightening flywhel is what i do ,to pay for my hobby's.
On avarage i do 2 flywheels a week for the dutch honda scene.

I did the eb flywheel just to now if i can be done,and yes ,its possible :D



The meters are old aftermarket ones,same for the meter pod.Its got rpm,volts and oil pressure .
As the previous owner cut a big hole in the dash,to mount a stereo,i was forced to find a salution to fill up the hole.I think this was the best way.
I'm not a smoker,so in dont need the ashtray :roll:

I'm trying to keep up with koosjer,so i had to change some things :D
To make it run better ,
petronix with blaster to loose the ballast resistor
Image

Hopefully i'l reduce smoke and oil loss ,changed the warn and dryed out 4 valvestemseals for 8 brand new ones.Changed beld and waterpump while i was there
Image

Than the best parts
Trying the new intake on the eb 1 head,and it does not fit flush at all.So marked the faulty spots


Image

Grinded the overlapping spots.

Image

As i was there,i cut away the battery base plate to get more space,relocated some of the electrics ,and bought a slimfan for the radiator.
Spray painted the neccecary parts,
I did'nt like the waterhose,so used an old one to cut up,en rebuild it with a titanium pipe.Its a condensor pipe of the powerplant where i work :D
I made the vacuum hose partely out of stainless tubing.
I'm happy
Image

Image

Image


This is my still rusty 4x100 swap,
Its 2nd gen hubs ,with civic 1988/1995 discs and callipers

Image

Image

Just use 2 washers to space up the calliper
Image
Next ,anti rust and paint :roll:

Syncronised my rs carbs today.I used an old set ,but worked realy fine.It measures the vacuum between butterfly and the sets orifise,With the gauge you can see the off set,by adjusting one butterfly you syncronise 1 with the other.Mine was way of.I have done this for many times on motorcycles,i acspected loads of progress.But no,i think its because the intake manifold has got a ballance pipe that combines the 2 carbs.So that it will run smoothly,and pick up fast
This is the set i used
Image


After that,i had a wash and drive.And made loads of pics. :D

Spent some time in my garage today.
How to lower the rear shocks.

I took a civic 88/99 spring seat .The steal bush in the rubbers dont fit the EB strut stem.But you can swap the steal bush ,just press it in.No need to shorten it .It fits!
Left New ,right Old EB
Image

Why use that spring seat?The rubber mounting is sitting on top of the seat.If you mount it on the strut stem,the seat will fall deeper over the stem.
The distance between top seat and strut seat is shorter now.So now you can mount shorter springs.

Image

I did not take the effort to find shorter springs,i cut and heated the oem's .
Image

Everething mounted.
I dont know how much lowered it is now,still need to mount them on the car.
Image

I'm now brainstorming on how to do the front.


Is my englisch understandable?

if you want to swap to 4x100, cant you just make yourself a set of spacers wich change your offset? with your machining skills it must be a very doable project. after that just take wheels with a hugh ET number and they shoulkd fit your arches nice.

Good Civic btw 8)

My 4x100 is almost done,
got some new bearings for all 4 corners.Just need to press them in.
I de rusted everything and brush painted it with steel pain.

For the rear ,i just made it myselve easy.
Redrilling :D

Put the drum in a lathe,and mark the 100MM
Then you calculate the distance between the hole with pythagoras and set it out on the circle.

Image

Image

Image

Then drill the holes.You could now put some new studs in,but i find them a bit badly flush with the metal.The are not nicely flush with the surface of the drum because of the shape of the drum.
So i machined it,to surface then neatly .
I used some studs of a 92 civic,as the thread has changed after 1980.
I could not use the ones that were in if i didnt wnt to end up with 2 types of lug nuts.
Image
Image
I need to put the bearings in next.
It was not difficult to get them,its standard size bearing skf 6304 en skf 62/28 ,even the seal was a standart size

The front hub is almost ready.
Image



At the same time i am making a replacement engine,to swap my smoky and smelly EB1.Just put in a new gasket.and a good oil flush.
Image

When thats in,this engine is gona be next.
Its gona be build for power.
Its a 1300EN,where A EB 1 ,yes 1 :twisted: ,is gonna be on.
It will make a engine with comp 12/1 almost.With the nice torq of the EN1300.
It can make 100HP :mrgreen:

I totally forgot to update this site,
loads of old news ,copie paste sorrie


Spent some time in my garage today.
How to lower the rear shocks.

Image

I did not take the effort to find shorter springs,i cut and heated the oem's .
Image

Everething mounted.
I dont know how much lowered it is now,still need to mount them on the car.
Image

Now my version on lowering the front,

I wanted something like i did on the rear,but kept breaking my head on the bearing and turning movement of the complete set.

I had a sleapy night shift at work,and came with this idea

This is a rough sketch ,measuments are MILIMETERS(metric system)

Image

This is after finishing .
Image
Image

What does it do?you will think?

As its hard for me to explain in english ,an other sketch
Image

Now fitting it all,

First you find your lowerd spring,cut spring or heated spring,what ever you are used te do.

I'm been using cut springs for years on road cars,and it works 100% for me.
No coments on this way of lowering as topics have allready been filled with do's or don'ts

Image

Place them on your strut and put the spring top on.
Place your bearing and seal like normal.
Now comes my bush/sleeve what ever you call it.
It will line your bearing nicely in the middle
Image

Now your strut top would come..But due to my new bush it will not fit.
You need to file ,cut or drill the hole in the strut top to 22MM,so the it wil fit.
This pic is with my bush fitted in the strut top
Image

Now you can put it all together,but to lock the complete shock you need the last part.The outer sleeve .
Without this sleeve your strut middle"piston/shaft" (whats the name?)wil pop out of the strut top when it bumps out while riding your car.
Image
Just put the oem washer as normal,it wil push the outer sleeve down and locking the middle bush in the strut top

This is how it looks after fitting on the car.
You can see the is enough room between nut and hood,you could even make the bush/sleeve even longer,as the hood runs a bit round,and nod dead flat from left to right..I think you could make it to 50MM or more.
Image



So,i you can use my brainstorm idea's :D
Is my englisch understandable?



Becouse i made several mistakes,its now time to tell,so that others wont :lol:

Deu to not reading the 4x100 how to on this site i mis used things.As pinions and control arms.

When i assembled my 2nd gen knuckles onto my sb1 i notised thad my new bearing had some "play"on it

When i drove it,the brake disk even scratched the calliper.
WHY :shock:

Settled for a couple days,and took it apart.
What went wrong.
After measuring a lot,i found out that the splines on the pinion are not long enough.In stead of locking the bearing,it now locked the splines.
Again did some researche here and read about this.
In stead of putting on some 2nd gen pinion it put it in my lathe.
Just to be sure the pinion would slide in to the knuckle far enough
Image
Fit it al together ,and yep...its does the trick!!

Drove it again.No scraping sound anymore luckely

Stil it did not drive good.Loads of feedback on the steering wheel.
Why????
I had it lined out at a shop.
Image
Found out that i had way to much positieve camber.

Why....
1stgencivic.com.....thanks again for the info.

Problem,i had to use 2nd gen lower arms,to compensate the knuckle.

But ,why not do it differend.

I was checking the scrapp metal containers at work and found something i could use almost plug and play.
Image

I onely made the square part.Its just a solid block of metal ,with i drilled and tapped.
Something annyone can do with minor tools.

Than take a control arm.and start cutting..
Image
And start welding TIG.
Image
Image

I cut out the rubberbushing out of the scrap piece control arm.I'm re using it,and put in my home made arm.
Than re alligne
And drive!!


Doing 4x100 swap the right way
To share some some info to you guys.
Here by a pictorial on how to swap to 4x100

On this site is already a tutorial on how to do it,BUT I dont like this one
http://www.1stgencivic.com/world/c1zr/m ... hp?t=12530

Why is it that i dont like this one,I'v done it.But took it of after riding it and realignment .

Due to the fact that you use the lower control arm and 2nd gen hub ,your wheel span wil change big,it will widen out a lott!!
Now you will not be able to put wider wheels on your car.Your positive camber is still there .So steering is BAD.

This is what i recomment,this is what I think is best.
You can give reply's if you think I am not right,I dont mind



What do you need:

1st gen knuckles
1st gen brake callipers
2nd gen disk brake
2nd gen hub(4x100)
Wheel bearing (1st or 2nd gen ,both will fit)
2nd gen 80/83 pinion or modify the 1st gen item(shown later)


This is what a 2nd gen hub looks like with dust seal of 1st gen on.
Image

1st gen dust seal on 2nd gen hub
Image

1st gen hub with 2nd gen seal and visa versa
Image
Image

So now you know its fits!!

2nd gen knuckle and 1st gen knuckle

Image
Image

1st gen and 2nd gen bearings,both wil fit in 1st or 2nd gen knuckle!
Image


Now beforen pressing it all together ,you need to shorten the bolt heads of the dust seal.When the 1st gen hub is fitted on the knuckle you got clearance couse its 4x120,so more space.
The 2nd gen is 4x100,so 20mm less clearance.
Grind of the bold heads,that is the easy way
Image

Than put it al together,2nd gen hub in 1st gen knuckle
Image

Than put 2nd gen disk brake on,and 1st gen brake callipers.
Image
Image

Now you are almost done
The pinion head of the 1st gen will not fit the hub,the splines run all the way on 2nd gen hubs,1st gens run 2/3 the way.

So you need to swap the pinion head to 2nd gen 80/83 on your axle.
I like it easy,1 just put my pinion on my lathe,and made more room on the spline track.Just made it a bit deeper,so the splines of the hub wil slide further on de pinion head.
Image




I even made the swap better:

what i used

1st gen knuckles
2nd gen hub
2nd gen bearing
civic 92 brake booster and main cillinder
civic 92 vti brake calliper and disk
home made bracket


Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image


Stil rebuilding the engine,but that will be finished this afternoon i think.


I got time to test fit my new wheels.
Original VW 4x100 ET45 wheels.They need new tyres,but they look nice to me!!

Image

Image

Pickt up my wheels today,
I like um!
Inside they look brownish,outside the look more gold,and a sparkle apears in direct sunlight.

What you think?

Do share what the new engine plan will be, I'm amazed at how you and Hoosjer managed to find such complete RS carb setups. If you come across any other RS carb kits or parts for them please please please let me know :D
