OK so not even a tidbit of an update? Not even one picture? Not even a prognosis? You are soooooo mean.

Man, you start to get tired at 5:30 in the morning, especially after a few hours of playing hold the tranny while we try to shove it on,

Anyway, no pictures, but I'm just illin' before I call my junkyard so I'll post up the list of to do:

(Buy) Very long bolt from starter to block, mine is bent somehow
(Buy) VSS plug
(Buy) Cluster plugs
(Buy) Rear mount, tranny portion
(Buy) Side mount, both pieces
(Buy) Misc. shift linkage bolts
(Buy) New shift linkage pin, from Honda
(Do) Plug in VSS and other sensors we moved out of the way
(Do) Figure out what to do with the transmission cooler stuff
(Do) Hook up the OEM traction bar on the passenger side
(Do) Reverse and park wiring
(Do) Flywheel Sheild Installation
(Do/Buy) Driver side CV boot


Jared, help me out if I forgot something good.

Called the junkyard and they said 20 bucks each for mounts, little high for 16-18 year old mounts, but I'll take it,

Okee then, off to the junkyard with me. We'll see if I can grab super boltage also since I do in fact need them. I might try and get a linkage pin so I can drive the car to honda, if not I'll just slap a 12mm in for the time being and wait until tuesday. That'll prolly be the last to be fixed properly.

I hope you are driving the Camry to the junkyard. The CRX might be clunky since you are missing some bolts and mounts. Just goes to show you how much better you are than I am when putting stuff together. Usually I have parts left over.

yea i guess we kinda forgot the pics...

this was quite a troublesome project. so many things just didnt seem to go correctly. i thought we would be done in less than 6 hours, but as the morning song birds started singing and the sun started coming i realized its not going to get done overnight.

at least some of the more annoying things are done. like situating the shift linkage and throwing the tranny back on the block.

that pizza was good though.

the timing was aweome. i wasnt too tired when i got home so i checked the waves and they were 4ft and glassy, so i went out for a good bday session. now here i am on no sleep.

I didn't forget pictures, I thought about it and said no, for a swap like this a first timer won't do the best stuff and it'll kill on time, mehbe next time.

Just got back from the junkyard, they closed early so I went under the fence (bad decision, yes) and got most of the stuff I needed besides the rear mount. As I was going to leave some money near the door under a rock (as per what the guy said it would cost) I noticed he and some people were there, so I went over there and was thorougly reemed for breaking into his yard (I deserved it, yes). Eventually he decided not to call the cops (because I was honest about where I lived and worked and he recognized me from calling) and I gave him the money and left extremely disappointed with myself for doing something so disrespectful even though I had the best of intentions to leave money for the stuff.

, bad day, and it's my fault, of course.

Anyway, on to the swap (bolded are things I've got the stuff to do, not necessarily done though):

(Buy) Very long bolt from starter to block, mine is bent somehow
(Buy) VSS plug
(Buy) Cluster plugs
(Buy) Rear mount, tranny portion
(Buy) Side mount, both pieces
(Buy) Misc. shift linkage bolts
(Buy) New shift linkage pin, from Honda
(Do) Plug in VSS. TPS and other sensors we moved out of the way
(Do) Figure out what to do with the transmission cooler stuff
(Do) Hook up the OEM traction bar on the passenger side
(Do) Reverse and park wiring
(Do) Flywheel Sheild Installation
(Do) Hook up the clutch cable
(Do/Buy) Driver side CV boot

Jared, thank you again, for all the help. My side mounts were actually correct, but the one was missing a bolt. I looked at where the hook together and can't figure out the stuff, but yeah.

Mainly a remind myself/think time as I take a quicky break:

(Wire) VSS
(Wire) Cluster plugs
(Buy) Rear mount, tranny portion
(Buy) Misc. shift linkage bolts
(Buy) New shift linkage pin, from Honda
(Do) Figure out what to do with the transmission cooler stuff
(Do) Reverse and park wiring
(Find) Temporary bolt of the shift-o-linkage
(Do) Test drive!!!
I think I've got everything plugged in and all that, not 100% sure but it'll code if something important is off I guess.

Note to self: You misused a dizzy bolt, find a replacement.

Edited the above and now I'm stuck trying to get the driver side axle in. Honda-tech says ram it in like no tomorrow, so I'll go try that. If it works I'm very close to firing it up and test driving it. If it doesn't work I'm going to sleep.

Grr.

Now I can't tell if it's in the tranny all the way or not, but I know for sure it ain't going in the hub. It gets in the hub to where the splines barely touch on the hub/axle and then it feels like it hits a brick wall. I'm so stumped, I dunno what to do now besides hate myself.
