Re: HotRod205's teardown... pics and questions

Finally getting back to this, getting tired of parking outside in the cold! Then again, Alabama "winter" only lasts about 6 weeks...

There are a couple of pieces I can't figure out if/how to...

Re: How to fix dash

FWIW, my 2002 SL2 dash pad does the exact same thing. Sucks it is so cheap when the Gen 3 dash looks so much better than the Gen1/2 dash. The one place you are going to be looking most of the time...

Re: Clutch pedal adjustment

I disagree, with a new master/slave the pedal will engage smoothly through the upper-mid section of the pedal travel, not at the very top. I didn't think there was anything wrong with mine and the...

Re: Clutch pedal adjustment

Replace the master/slave combination. they are plastic and they wear out. It will be like you have a new clutch. Buy the combined ready to install master/slave combo, you won't have to worry about...

Re: one month old clutch slipping

Don't overlook the hydraulics. I had similar symptoms a few months after replacing the clutch. When I replaced the clutch at 175 I was surprised to find some material left on the disk, no leaks. ...

Re: 2002 SL1 - Theft Recovery, shuts off after startup

So how was it stolen? Did the thief have a key? If so, the security system wouldn't know it was stolen, so I doubt that would be your problem.

If not, then the thief would have had to hot-wire...

Re: Membership loss rate?

AMEN! I have inherited a 99 Accord that I'm driving while rebuilding my Satty and have gone to forums for a few problems on the neglected (by mother-in-law) Accord. There are plenty of Honda forums...

Re: Help, metal flakes in oil, sounds like timing chain off its guides

May actually be from the cam gears, mine with 254k was grinding down the teeth on the gears. The guides were still fine but my chain was worn out. The chain tensioner will only expand so far, when...

Re: Switched to 91 Octane Gas and...

I was wondering about pricing also, it doesn't make as much sense here. Today's prices at Chevron, similar throughout my area across brands/grades:

87 - $3.03
89 - $3.36
91 - $3.49

So the...

Re: head removal 2002 sl dohc

It is not hard though, the cam bolts are easy. The rocker arms will stay in place, so you can set the cams right back in place as soon as you have the head bolts out.

Re: Growling noise coming from either compressor or water pump

Mileage? If you are over 150k don't overlook the timing chain.

Remove the belt and run it for a few seconds. If the noise is still there you need to pull off the valve cover (it's pretty easy)...

Re: HotRod205's teardown... pics and questions

I avoid speed shops except to look at the shiny bits and see how the rich and/or stupid spend their money. The shop I'm using is as you described. Plain ugly building in heavy industrial area,...

Re: HotRod205's teardown... pics and questions

That is the plan. How much do you think the machine shop work for that will be, ballpark? Luckily I'm in a million+ metro so there are several good machine shops here, the one I'm using has several...

Re: HotRod205's teardown... pics and questions

This is the worst of the pistons, #2 again. Actually looks worse in the photos than in person. Or maybe my vision is going.

Re: HotRod205's teardown... pics and questions

Now that I've wiped them down a little, looks like some wear on the crank from the rod bearings. This is #2, which seemed to be the worst. #2 & #3 had more wear than #1 & #4.

All the rings were perfect. I found where the little pieces came from... the cam sprocket teeth! The intake sprocket is the one missing teeth, but the exhaust sprocket isn't far behind...

Re: HotRod205's teardown... pics and questions

I finally got some time at lunch today (I work at home) to get the oil pan & baffle off and take out a few pistons. I removed #2 & #3 before I had to get back to work. I found several interesting...

Re: removing parking brake from shoe

I had a helluva time getting that sucker off. I used a flat screwdriver and pliers and nearly tore it up, so that probably isn't the best method.

Once the clip was off I got revenge by pounding...

Re: HotRod205's teardown... pics and questions

I know someone (fdryer?) thought he had a problem with his J&C head but then came back and said it was fine, the problem was something else. Have there been others?

Re: HotRod205's teardown... pics and questions

That makes sense now that I think about it!

Not worrying about that though, I'm getting a J&C head.
