WTG Haro!!! You'll be fixing your own car soon enough.

Was anything overly tough? Or did you find that, as I've told people...a car and engine is nothing more than a few systems built upon each other...and in essence is a pile of parts held together in the right places by bolts and nuts.

Looks good. I'll be doing this when I can find a good long weekend to spend at home. Was there anything difficult and require special tools or "special attention"?

And the big question... now what?

Two words for you Andrew: Holy Crap!

That is super impressive. Say.. while you have it apart, change your water pump.



Seriously though, I am impressed. Gonna rebuild it as long as it is in a million parts? Oh and is this the old engine or the new one?

Andrew lets get some good pistons, rings, L32 rods.... And do a build up...

Looking at the pics does everyone understand the diffrence between the series I and series II engines?

Notice the short deck heigth as well as the shorter piston/rod assemblies?

screw the "Recruite" position, you are going to need a gearhead status once you're done!

And the big question... now what?
harmonic balancer gave me some troubles only because i didnt have the right tools... started with a cresent wrench , and then bought an electric impact , and finally bought a 1/2 breaker bar with a pipe on it, and me pretty much standing on it to get it off...24mm bolt btw

everything else was in my socket set other than a screwdriver and what not...

suprised nobody said anything about the missing SC... my dad was originally gonna part this out himself, but the SC went to $100 to some guy in finland.. so he said i could do it and try to get more for everything

this motor is out of a black 01 ssei with 43K, cause of death: blown piston from predetonation, from using cheap gas im assuming..

this motot is strictly to part out and sell... will be going in FS asap...

one other things, there has to be a better way to get those bars that hold the crankshaft in, i used a screw driver to pry....

oh yeah.. the ground isnt cold, its actaully warmer in the garage than the house...
