    Anyone replaced thier Rack and Pinion?

    Finally getting around to replacing a worn rack and pinion steering after procrastinating about 6 months. The directions state that you need to have the steering wheel pointed straight and locked. Problem is, I can only get it to lock in the 9 o'clock and 2:30 positions. It also wants you to...

    Transmission Finally Gone....

    Last summer I picked up a "low mileage" Jdm 4cyl auto trans for $450 and installed myself. I was a bit skeptical at first. But I was very pleased at how nicely it shifts. After one year, no issues. There were two sensors on the back of transmission that were 3 pins vs the 2 pin on USDM trans...

    Anyone have a spare distributor off their 4cyl?

    Appreciate that feedback. You saved me a huge headache. Fixed one leak. Found Another. This time Vtec solenoid gasket. Hopefully I will have a dry motor after this.

    Anyone have a spare distributor off their 4cyl?

    I was installing a new distributor shaft seal to replace a badly leaking one. The marks I put on the bottom of the distributor base wore off from handling it as I was pressing out the pin at the base. I should have used punch marks in hindsight. I need to find the correct orientation when...

    Torque convertor installation to driveplate

    Working on installing "new to me" auto 4cyl trans this weekend. Upon removal i marked relationship of the TC to driveplate. Since I am installing a new torque convertor now there is no reference mark. The Haynes manual says it is to maintain the static balance of torque convertor. The bolt...
