      I'm reviving this because it's my own thread :PMy Fidanza 3.2 4-puck kevlar clutch disc gave up a spring around this time. I wonder if the spring being so loose was causing this issue right before it let go.. I guess we'll never know now.

      curt-s replied to the thread 2G Insanely high oil pressure.
      I am not saying 200k is necessarily bad, but just expect there to be problems with high mileage vehicles. Things wear out, things are heat cycled to death, etc etc. It is a fact of vehicle ownership. This was just a response to "won't quit having...

      you could always try to cut new facets with a dremel and cutoff wheel, make it a smaller one. but that would be crazy. sometimes you can just pound a socket onto it but it would have to have little to no taper given how shallow the bolt heads are.

      Usually due to past owner shenanigans, just don't be the new owner who pulls the same shenanigans.. You have a 25 year old car. Ask me how many problems a 2020 civic wont have in 2045.200k miles is a LOT. Perhaps you don't have a high oil...

      some of the oiling holes meant for the shaft are blocked when you rotate a bearing to block themalso i would look into plumbing in an actual oil pressure gauge and stop putting a lot of trust in the factory one, but thats just me..

      So I have mine rewired and feel the need to caution that this pump is LOUD. It sounds about 2x, if not more, louder than the 255 I used to have on my 1g FWD. I will have more data once the car is running in the next day or three but on priming...

      Hey, you can laugh at yourself a bit, but this is how many people start. I purchased my first vehicle new from a dealership because I had never even changed a tire before. 6 months later, I bought my first DSM and immediately went to work tearing...

      curt-s replied to the thread 420A Engine Head installation?.
      Get yourself a Haynes or Chilton manual, you'll need it for more than just a head gasket job :)

      Jesus. It looks like it was assembled with a hammer and a tube of RTV. Yet somebody took the time to paint the fluid reservoir cap. Mind boggling.Up here, 1K for a complete car of this type isn't a bad deal and there's way more than 1K in parts...

      I don't want to be that guy but just so it's clear to everyone newer to link that may be reading this, the rows he's referring to are not g/rev but load factor tracked from the log. For instance, at a point where it's at 2.76g/rev, the load...

      That makes more sense now, Marty, thanks for explaining. I now see there is a benefit to it. I was looking at it strictly from a long-term point of view where the majority of us (if not all of us) wouldn't be caught without a WB for any...

      even though its a 9 year old dead thread revival, this statement still peaked my interest. what are the differences between the two?
    • curt-s
      Because I lost it and now am going to have to do a timing belt job with a pair of pliers again..My Jays Racing tensioner pulley tool. That tiny little thing saved so much aggravation that I am now about to re-live.

      socks? I wouldn't trust my sometimes clumsy self, and even my work shoes which are mostly mesh can't save me from myself every time.let's see.. the culmination of the last couple days has me at:- installed head from my old 6bolt that has the...
