    Haha if that's the case, my son will probably get to drive that. He might be ashamed of drying an old POS that consumes gasoline, and plays compact discs and cassette tapes lol.

    Updated the list, after getting a huge maintenance job done, which was supposed to be completed by June lol. Took forever to collect all parts for this on my own, since my shop could only charge me with Acura dealer retail price for the parts. The delay pulled me behind until late September, but it was worth being patient during the shipments, and it's all running smooth with all fresh studs n bolts! Ended up replacing the fuel injectors, instead of cleaning, since a couple of them were cracked. Got the oil pressure switch also replaced, and there seems to be no more leaky situations happening from the P.S. pump & the oil pump areas by now. The motor idles sooo smoooth now... But, just b/c of that, the car vibrates quite noticeably by the old motor mounts now lol. Onto get those new ones next. Happy Thanks Giving Day To Everyone!!

    Well, this motor restoration project is taking forever, but I'm still here! Big new updates to come up really soon. There's going to be one last major parts replacements game happening, before this motor gets into the Accord's engine bay, later in the future. Actually, this replacement stuff can / should be done all together at the motor swap, but the Accord is really being difficult to be treated as a daily beater anymore, and I found this CL to be very convenient when she becomes more drivable. Hence, in order to make this CL as a reliable car once again, there is going to be a few big replacements coming up to further restore her condition to a decent level. Here's my list of sections:

    • Clutch & flywheel

    • Motor mounts + brackets

    • Transmission mounts (components only)

    • Exhausts manifold gaskets & head gaskets

    • Fuel rails

    • Cylinder head bolts

    • Camshaft thrust covers

    • Thermostat switch o-ring

    • Cylinder block's rear main oil seal

    • Starter motor

    • Alternator

    • Exhausts manifold headers + A-pipe

    • HID Ballast + bulb (driver's side only)

    • Motor oil + oil filter

    • Manual transmission fluid

    • A/C recharging

    These sections are still focused on the motor swap, minus the A/C work & an HID ballast. All parts are new, except for the ballast. It took me a while for me to collect all of these parts from Acura on my own, but with my buddy's help, I'm happy that all of the parts are going to be installed with new OEM nuts, bolts, studs, and brackets from the factory. However, some of those OEM parts and components were discontinued as a whole assembly, due to the age and rarity of the model. With that said, some of the existing parts on the vehicle (i.e. some motor mount brackets & the transmission mounts w/ components) are going to be reused. Fingers cx'ed.. Btw, the factory starter motor I got for this CL is from '04 - '06 base TL. It's because the OEM 6MT CL starters were sadly discontinued long ago, but this remanufactured one will work w/o any issues. It has been cross referenced with the Acura dealership's parts department guys to verify the compatibility. Other Accord owners with swapped motors are also running these starters with no problem for years. Also, there are four sections listed above are aftermarket brands with **one exception** in terms of fitment.

    AFTERMARKET PARTS LIST:
    • Clutch + flywheel = EXEDY / LUK OE replacement

    • Motor mounts = INNOVATIVE OE replacement

    • Alternator = DENSO OE replacement

    • Exhausts mani headers & A-pipe = **DC SPORTS** (HHS5528 stainless steel for AT tranny CL)

    **(Since the piping is shaped for the auto CL, it needs to be hammered and bent. I was also given a choice of getting the AT motor mount instead, in order to run this header piece without applying any modifications on it. But I also heard and believe that perhaps it might be worth customizing this header, than exchanging the mount with one of my nearly purchased motor mounts. Not only this HHS5528 DC headers becoming hard to come by, but I will also have to go through more of those ordering processes to exchange and repurchase the additional parts components for the AT mount in these frequently backordered freight moving chaotic societies. Once it's bent, it will look similar to the Comptech's headers, I suppose.)**

    The cylinder heads will be cleaned, machined, and pressure-tested as well. I thought about throwing my Accord's old stock suspension parts into this CL, since her struts are getting weak, but this could wait.
    This is so exciting! Once it's done, I get to drive a fresh 6-6, yet as a beater for a while!:driving:

    Sent out the car to the shop to complete the stuff I documented on my previous post, and the motor is now gutted out. This is going to be the final parts replacement game, before the swap. My original plans for the areas of the replacement have been pretty much everything from the air intake to the headers, excluding internals. Kind of like a 150K - 200K mi parts replacement maintenance sort of speak. I thought I could finish it off, where the headers pipe meets the catalytic converter, but the car didn't let me complete it as I planned. It's because the piping and the flange from the headers to the converter have been severely corroded. It would affect the proper sealing of my new headers, if I were to keep this existing old factory cat now. Honestly, I didn't feel like getting near $3K oem new converter, so I went out with a Magnaflow oem grade fitment piece instead. Man, IDK what sort of expensive metal stuff, like platinum or something, they put into these oem cat converters, but this Magnaflow's was only a quarter of the price of the factory converters. Also, the cat-back sections of the flanges were also corroded af, so I needed a new set of exhausts, too. Wasn't really expecting to renew an exhausts system at this point either. The factory sets were discontinued long ago, so I looked for an oem reps by Borla or Bosal, but there were n/a. Since I still prefer having a quiet setup, my choice was settled with a set of Tanabe Medallions. There were also a few leaky spots shown by the oil pan, oil pump front main seal, rear main seal block plate, and the p.s. rack. The leak from the rack has been minor, and I wanted to opt it out, but it became very active, so it needs a replacement as well. Got all of these parts ordered, and I received them mostly. But the oil pan is now backordered. :dancingpoop:

    When it's finished, I should be able to regain a fully restored motor function and the gear shifting, though the suspension components are corroded af. I better start think about renewing the front tires, before having too much fun with it lol.

    Got some progress, though the oil pan is still backordered. But it's got the ETA finally, Nov. the 15th! The clutch and the wheel are replaced. The cylinder heads are back from the machine shop, and those are in a good shape. Got the mounts bolted on, plus the alternator and headers. The headers still need some "adjustments" to clear the rear mount. The new cylinder bock plate has arrived with the oil seal, and the oil pump seal as well. Once the oil pan arrives, there will be more progress shown, such as P.S. rack, cat converter, exhausts system, and voila! :driving:

    Edited the mod / maintenance list below and uploaded a couple of photos. I will try to upload more in a few days!

    ^Thanks!

    More photos. The oil pan is here, and this completes my parts supplying game. We'll see how it goes.



    The compressor will work till the swap, as well as the P.S. line.

    Glad to see you're progressing with the project! Ever since I painted the Accord I dont want to drive it anymore lololol even though it's supposed to be my daily. Gonna push my beater CL thru the winter and pull the motor in the spring. Hoping to save money for parts to throw at it once the motor is out and needs to be refreshed.

    Are you putting the refreshed motor back into the CL or swapping it into the Accord? Love seeing the updates when I pop back into the site!
