Thanks! Haha I hear you lol keep the paint fresh! Good luck with your CL! I'm gonna put this motor back into the CL, and drive it as a beater for a while until I settle my plan for the swap. i.e. where/what/how to keep my gutted out CL afterwards etc.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!
Got more new parts thrown into the motor. Oil Pan, crank pulley (couldn't resist with the old one), new(er) AC compressor from my Accord's spare. There will be a fresh n shiny set of the timing belt cover bolts as well.
Got my DC Sports headers modded to clear the rear MT mount. The piping is bent and the mount's arm is slightly scraped off to remain the clearance.
Took the transmission home so I could clean it out on my own. Took some elbow greasing but I think it became pretty decent now.
Got some parts for the clutch release fork, since they were pretty worn out. Once the MT is back on, the P.S. rack, cat converter, and the exhausts system will be on the go next.
