[QUOTE=BldrGyMnGy;34219291]actually fuck no car wont go over 2000rpm unless I shift DOWN ughushguoesoeug[/QUOTE] carb. Have fun. I remember with my old suzuki rm 125 2005... I hated carbs.
[QUOTE=cNova;34220877]Thats because that thing is sucking in hot engine air[/QUOTE] actually it was because I was missing a vacuum line motherfucker i'm driving a bullet now
we should have a FP AA meeting. track event or something.
Section it off so no one has to drive for more than 2 hours to get to the meet?
then it would be a solo meet for almost everyone?
we should just all play forza 4 then.
Should meet in Oklahoma. Middle of the states, average distance for everyone in North America would be about the same. :v
Just used some of that headlight restorer ~~DIY PRO~~ worked great though, the old headlight almost looks like the new one

[QUOTE=Concur;34210127]Today i shall drain my coolant And remove my 30000000 things that are in the way of the thermostat And then change my thermostat And then fucking rage if thats not whats wrong with it.[/QUOTE] ahahahahah fuck. Taking it to the mechanic, starting to think about buying a new car come summer, something rwd that i can build up to be kinda quack.
[QUOTE=cNova;34220877]Thats because that thing is sucking in hot engine air[/QUOTE] Have you ever even seen a carburetor before?
[QUOTE=BldrGyMnGy;34226817]actually it was because I was missing a vacuum line motherfucker i'm driving a bullet now[/QUOTE] By bullet, I mean there's a vacuum leak with the transmission still so I have to manually shift in my automatic car.
[QUOTE=justin1992;34229634]Don't you live in Oklahoma?[/QUOTE] Wow, yeah. I do. How convenient is that?
I changed the oil in the civic today, it looks like it needed it badly. I have some advice though, don't change your oil in gusting wind. Especially gusting Oklahoma wind, the worst kind. It blew oil across my decently clean engine bay my first attempt to pour it in. [t]http://img32.imageshack.us/img32/5412/wp000589.jpg[/t] But i didn't spill a drop pouring the old oil into this milk jug.
Not today but yesterday. New coolant, new thermostat, new oil, new oilfilter and connected the spark plug leads the correct way.. Now I only need a timing adjustment and it should run just fine :> It wasn't a blown head gasket anyway, just the last people who changed the plugs and leads connected in the wrong order [editline]16th January 2012[/editline] It's the Golf btw
Trying to get my car running again, got the transmission in but can't remember if I did it right. Bradley(or anyone else), do you know if you have to do anything with the clutch fork? I went through an article to get the torque specs for all the bolts and realized that there is a spring on the fork which is meant to hold the fork down the input shaft. Mine was just kind of loose in there and the fork fell off while we were moving it around. I just put the throwout bearing on it, put it on the input shaft and got it on the car.. It's an Integra so I would figure the b series hydraulic transmission would be similar to the d series ones on your Civics or other cars you've worked on.

You do have a retaining clip, right? There is a spring that sits behind the fork on the shaft, but it isn't really required (Although I wouldn't recommend not running that spring). The spring holds the fork against the retaining clip to keep it from falling out. If the spring got oily or just wore out it probably broke long ago, I'd suggest putting another spring in there and making damn sure you have the retaining clip. Floppy clutch forks are the reason a lot of B series trannies break clutch forks, they get hung up and snap. B and D trannies are identical except for bellhousing pattern and other measurements. Everything is mechanically the same. But B series are known for the fork ordeal, I don't know what all is up with it, just know that it is probably annoying. I still rock dirty D's because they are dirt cheap and a great platform to work with.
showcasing some parts from this summer: mishimoto alu rad [IMG]http://i.imgur.com/CWJNRl.jpg[/IMG] Cx racing IC [IMG]http://i.imgur.com/eMEsel.jpg[/IMG] Raptor racing ceramic 6puck sprung clutch with oem pressure plate [IMG]http://i.imgur.com/B2V4Cl.jpg[/IMG] [IMG]http://i.imgur.com/JBUm5l.jpg[/IMG] Cx racing IC piping [IMG]http://i.imgur.com/a0IhLl.jpg[/IMG] [IMG]http://i.imgur.com/ixfg0l.jpg[/IMG] on top of that (no picture): ct-26 57mm from driftmotion with a ported wastegate, 550cc rc injectors, lexus MAF, small other goodies. Made my car a blast to drive @ 18psi (fuel cut limiting me) Now on the recent stuff (not installed yet) turbo oil flange gasket kit, pcv hose that I needed, small connectors and vacuum line. Booring stuff here new accordeon hose (because I needed one that wasn't cracked): [IMG]http://i.imgur.com/Rvyffl.jpg[/IMG] Aem uego to have a idea what i'm doing with the safc II [IMG]http://i.imgur.com/2Y9TGl.jpg[/IMG] [IMG]http://i.imgur.com/3DdGwl.jpg[/IMG] [IMG]http://i.imgur.com/rOAh9l.jpg[/IMG] oil line for the turbo, made out of AN fitting/hose [IMG]http://i.imgur.com/L04rIl.jpg[/IMG] [IMG]http://i.imgur.com/I1zwrl.jpg[/IMG] before putting it in storage for the winter (local car enthusiast club meet) [IMG]http://i.imgur.com/MRJ1ll.jpg[/IMG] can't wait to install all these and the aluminium driveshaft on the car. I will try to lean the ecu to 11.5 afr when in WOT@fullboost (it is currently under 9:1, PIG RICH). If I'm lucky I will be over 370rwhp when I'll get on the dyno this summer
Can we be friends?
installed some subframe lockdown bolts to complement poly bushings, car no longer feels like it's floating on a sea of rubber, lol econobox w/ tarbo [quote] [img]http://dl.dropbox.com/u/3702776/Photo%20Dump/2012-01-15_16-21-50_821.jpg[/img] [/quote]

This video shows the guy putting it in, I never took the clip out but I'm pretty sure I didn't clip it onto the pivot ball. I think I'll pull the slave cylinder and try my best to pop it on with a big screwdriver because I really don't want to pull the transmission again..

Basically, if the clutch feels good then it is good, you've nothing to worry about. Now, if it went dead after pushing it the first time, that's when you know the fork slipped. But there's nowehre to go unless you didn't get it over the ball. Once it's over the ball it isn't going anywhere.
Small engine lovers' attention ho! Finally got the engine home and apart. It's definitely an Onan.

The parts for conducting electricity will definitely be taken apart and all the copper sold for scrap. The whole thing together is more than 300 pounds.
that thing looks rough
[QUOTE=Dylan_94;34249430]that thing looks rough[/QUOTE] That's an understatement. It's filled with ice and sand, no way it will ever run, the exhausts are rusted through and the carb is broken to smithereens, but I'm thinking of making a table out of it, or something. If nothing works out, it'll be worth quite a bit for scrap.
There is no MFW worthy enough of the sadness filling me when I look at this poor engine

Are you going to try and swap a manual transmission into that at some point?
