Default finally time to dig into my ef

just recently started to aquire a lot of parts for my ef n no better time to work on it but winter. i pulled my b16 a week ago n begun to weld holes, n then the fun part filler.



its my first time working with filler but im getting the hang off it. while i was waiting for that to dry i wire wheeld my wheel wells to bare metal n then re-rubberized them, they look great.

a lot more to come.the whole suspension n brakes on the car are all going to be brand spankin new from bolts to bushings. also got my wheels,tires n coilovers in recently ill take some pics n post em up.

i can find out the address if you need me to
dont buy one from harbor freight they suck ass:thumbsdow:

Why are you removing that mount - looks like a tranny mount or engine mount welded to the body...If there is nothing wrong with it, work around it. Just my 2 cents worth...

For K series, you need to drill and bolt in a mount like the hasport kit in EF's, I believe...



Sorry, I read B16A up top in 1st post and assumed thats what was going back in.

If you are not using that mount, take a reciprocating saw (sawzall), cut it off, and then use an angle grinder to make mince meat of it.

But, if you want to buy a new tool and do it the "right" way, drill it out like mentioned above. You can also just use a drill bit and drill out the weld points...

EDIT - The above pic was to help point out where the weld points are where they were drilled out.

Also, if you are going K series, thats a cool swap. A lot of work like working around headlights, brake lines, speedo setup etc, but very cool...

You can Weld it in or Bolt it in either or.
Weld it in then Paint the Bay for a Fresh Look.
Don't forgot to Shave also ha

Default Re: finally time to dig into my ef

regarding welding that mount, the hasport mount is aluminum, the body is steel. I would make sure you weld the mount in with the right filler rod ensure you have enough weld penetration as that is a CRUCIAL mount.

Funny story - Back in the day, I had a CRX with a B16A swap in it, this was before the hasport days. Back then Brian Gillispe owned a junkyard called Honda Auto Salvage from where I got parts - Thats what HAS Stands for in HASport, kiddies.

Anyways, the tranny mount was welded in for the B16A. I sold the car to a guy in Cedar Rapids, I think. He had it for a while and one day on the interstate, the damn mount broke and end result axle broke.

So, he decides to inspect damage and forgot I had a cut valve cover when he grabbed the running engine by the sides to peek. His index and middle finger on the right hand got chewed to the bone - he sent me pics of the wounds, pretty disgusting - yet cool to see!

Moral of story 1: Ensure the mount is welded in properly...
Moral of the story 2: If you have a cut valve cover, don't grab engine on the sides when its running...

Sure, if you plan to cut it. Honestly though I think you'll need atleast another 2 inches or so for clearance.
