741 miles - a haul but doable. It's about the same distance to South Bend, IN, and I've driven that before.

OK, showing my ignorance here, what is the ISB? Might I want to install a new throwout bearing? Thats what we used to call them back in the 70's when replace my last clutch on my 1970 AMX.

As long as we are opening the tranny, why not just swap the final drive gear? My tranny only has 45k miles while the CX tranny has over 100k. Im sure that i just said something stupid but I will leave it to you to point that out.

Cant wait to meet the ***** pin!

The cx final drive is better

The cx final drive is better for FE than yours, so no worries there with swapping. Anyway, the pin ain't bad, you just need a tool for it.

Your throwout bearing should be fine also, but you can have any of the clutch **** from the cx you want if it looks to be in better condition.

ISB = input shaft bearing. Sure, we can replace the TOB (throw out bearing) while we're in there...will you be installing a new clutch as well? Usually a new TOB and pilot bearing (goes in the flywheel) comes with a new clutch.

Unless you have access to a press to break down the countershaft, it's going to be difficult to just swap the FD.

Again, with the right tools (1/4" drift pin, 3 lb hammer), the ***** pin is really nothing more than a wuss pin.

Anyway, compression should be the same or not significantly different. I will check though.
Doh! Im getting confused with the VX swap where the CR would change. Didnt mean to dis you SVO, i just got confused.

Yes, a dual tranny swap, one in each garage bay. I have a third bay under the deck in case anyone else needs to swap something. Bring your own jacks, as I have no lifts other than the el cheapo floor jack and two jack stands.

You didn't "dis" me, I'm

You didn't "dis" me, I'm just saying. Yeah, CR would be *** high on a vx head.

I need to find one of those damn engines. I put my car up on cinder blocks and wood,

The current clutch is still good but I guess we could put in an new clutch. Should I get one from the dealership? TOB and pilot bearings comes with eh? About how much for the works? Does a new clutch require resurfacing the flywheel? Maybe I should replace the timing belt also. 13 years old after all.

Anyway, most of my weekends are open for the meet. The bad ones are: April 15-16, April 29-30, June 17-18, July 22-23, August 19-20. Anything else is doable for me. SVOboy doesnt have any bad weekends except for graduation so, since a visit from DaX would be da bomb, what would be good for you?

Clutch can come from much

Clutch can come from much anywhere, I will be getting my new one for free soon (from a 98 civic ex) and just buying a TOB from autozone for 22 bucks to use it with my CRX. What what.

Thanks for considering it. Maybe a west coast meet is in order.

Wow, it seems like South Bend would be a lot farther. It is over 200 miles WNW from Pittsburgh.
