I'm speechless. All I can say is you got some skills, talent, and a whole lotta patients. I wish I knew at least half of what you can do. That's what I call inspiration! I just bought a 77' CVCC Wagon. One owner and all the maintenance receipts ever done. Makes me wanna break it down and put it back together. I don't want a show car though, just a rare daily driver.

You're BAD ASS!

1 Litre of panel wipe, some wet and dry and a few hours later its primed :)

Image

Image

Also been prepping the engine, new cambelt, stat, dizzy cap etc etc.

Also toying with lightening the flywheel.

Ive just weighed my EN4 (acclaim) flywheel @ 7.170KG

Image

And a EB1 (civic) flywheel@ 6.790KG

Image

The clutch weighs in @ 3.270KG

Here's the EN4 on the left and EB1 on the right for reference.

Image

I think i'll get one or the other lightened a tad

Well we had summer today so i managed to get some work done. :D

First i finished the engine bay paint with 4 coats of clearcoat. Its far from perfect but i need to get the engine back in and any imperfections can be dealt with with the engine in situ.

SHINEY

Image

Next i fitted my Fast and Furious EXEDY RACING clutch :lol:

Image

Look how the old clutch compares to the EXEDY

Image

Image

A NOS mainshaft makes a great clutch alignment tool.

Image

Almost ready for dropping back into the car. I would have liked to have tarted it up some more but i need to get back on the road. The summers for driving 8)

Image

Image

Here's Dr. Christoph's patented EN engine to SB1 chassis engine bracket which allows you to uses the stock torque rod. 8)
Thankyou Chris :)

Today i "massaged" the cross member to clear the down pipe before i dropped the engine and transmission in. Now its in i still dont think i have enough clearance so it'll have to be massaged some more

Here's the cross member before.

Image

And after i had massaged it with the gas axe.

Image

Good news is its finally in.

Image

Here's a shot showing how the EN to SB1 bracket works with the stock torque rod.

The peddle's came without rubbers but the acclaim ones fit fine.

Thanks mate. Was begining to think i was talking to myself :lol: must be the pain

got some more done yesterday.

the front cross member has been adjusted to fit the down pipe. the down pipe has had to be sawn down. to remove it you have to first remove the oil filter. it a bit tight down there. might need some more adjustment yet.

Image

looks like a screamer pipe :lol: going to add a clamp on flexi joint to a home made exhaust system

Image

electronic ignition module fitted.

Image

making a plate to cover up the hondamatic selector cable whole. obviously i will reinstate a hole for the gear stick

Image

Image

new coil fitted.
