D15Z1 Engine swap project log

As I prepare for my engine swap I figured it was time for me to begin logging my progress, with pictures.

I tried and tried to get the crankshaft pulley bolt off using the air gun and I couldn't do it.

So I resorted to the method suggested by Dax.





I bought a piece of pipe to make the prybar over 3 feet long.



I had my wife stand on the wood and the bolt came off in a jiff. Awesome idea Dax! Oh, I also had to do the same thing when I put the bolt back on. Hopefully it's torqued tight enough.

Success! The pully and the cover are off. Now it's time to replace the timing belt and water pump (both pictured on the right of the picture below)



After lots of confusion and referring to my multiple manuals on the subject, I finally got it all back together.



This was all done yesterday. It was a very good day.

Then tonight I mounted the transmission to the engine. I replaced the Throw-Out Bearing a few weeks ago on the transmission, and I also replaced the axle oil seals tonight as well.

here she is



The next step will be cleaning up a few things (nothing big). I also need to put the alternator bracket back on and get everything labeled so when the other engine comes out I will know exactly where everything goes.

That's just one seat. I'm waiting to change it because I want to swap the pedal cluster at the same time.

I only keep the crappy manual in the garage, at least until I make the bookcase for car books.

That engine/trans is in really good shape. Where did you pick it up and how much did it cost?

He's right. The engine is from Nippon motors, but the transmission is from a guy on Honda-Tech that was parting out his CRX HF. I paid $50 for the transmission and $60 to ship it.

hf tranny

Tim, The swap looks awesome. I found an hf tranny in NM and I am in NJ. Where did your hf tranny ship from, and what type of shipping was it? I am trying to decide on the cheapest method of shipping it.
