    Partspitstop an Ron Ayers. Not so much that I have a choice when selecting them but just wanted to understand what I am getting. For the conrod bearings there is a choice to choose between the three...

    Hi amc49, I am finally done with finalizing my bearing colors and am about to order parts. Just wanted to ask you which bearings are best: Nippon Dia, Taiho or Daido? These are all OEM brands right?...

    In an attempt to see what kind of clearances I was to expect if I used the chart in the manual and my measurements I made myself a spreadsheet. For the main journals, my measurement and the ID codes...

    I hope that the reason cause I remeasured the entire crank today and got the same measurements! One more thing though, the journals and pins passed for out of round inspection well but I did notice a...

    Measured my crankshaft today. Based on the markings, was expecting the Main Journals to be : C,B,B,B,B left to right of the engine and the Crank Pins to be: 3,2,2,2. All measurements came out to fall...

    Hey amc49, I was looking online for parts but it seems they are sort of drying up... And the ones that are available are expensive! Do you have any preferred parts stores/websites that are reputed to...
  7. Expensive? Oh hell yes! Speaking of the mileage,...

    Expensive? Oh hell yes! Speaking of the mileage, my odometer reads 11k miles so I guess I am okay. Is the 30K a service limit? Meaning the engine will have to come apart after another 19k miles if I...
  8. Okay I understand now. I have been doing some...

    Okay I understand now. I have been doing some reading and what you suggest seems the most perfect way to do this! Thak you. Will keep you updated.

    On a different note, what do you have to say...

    Okay.... but I find one thing difficult to understand. So when honda assembled the engines they stamped the diameter of the holes in the cases and the conrods as alphabet and number codes. Now, as...

    Alright. Will figure it out. I was in the midst of choosing bearings for conrods and the crank. Just wanted to check if I understand things right: as per the procedure in the manual, all we need to...

    Man that is some great advice! I really really am grateful to have access to someone like you that takes time to help novices like myself. Thank you amc49! One question though, I even sheared off the...

    Thanks! I am gonna file the bump back and do what you said. But yeah, i did break the pin off. What do you mean by "if you are careful enough"? Do you think it would be okay to tig weld and shape a...

    amc49 needed your opinion on some damage on my crankshaft. I feel really stupid saying it out loud but, back when I was trying to take my alternator rotor bolt off, in order to try to keep the...
  14. Hello amc49 and others here. So after a lot of...

    Hello amc49 and others here. So after a lot of struggle, I did manage to take the rotor out (got the hardened steel puller and it worked!). You were right! However, the two piece puller I had...
  15. Okay. I have been trying and trying and trying...

    Okay. I have been trying and trying and trying but no success. The more time I spend on it the more badly stuck it feels. Another problem i face is that, since the engine is on my bench and out of...
  16. I got the tool I mentioned machined and tried...

    I got the tool I mentioned machined and tried using it. It seems to be doing whats intended but the rotor refuses to come off. As you mentioned, I am led into thinking that this will probably need...
  17. That's some great advice! I had indeed already...

    That's some great advice! I had indeed already tightened all the lower crank case bolts before starting on the rotor. Talking about the rust, the external body of the rotor is not rusted at all so i...

    Hello, posting after some time again! Since having taken the cylinders off, i have worked my way through till splitting the cases apart. However when I tried to, I realized that the alternator rotor...

    Hello! Posting after quite some time. After a lot of hard work and patience I have managed to take the cylinders off. It felt really good to be taking the cylinders off but to my dismay, the...

    Speaking of the tensioner, I did notice that the rubber covering the spring has turned hard and begun to shred. Is the rubber crucial for the internals? Although I have not studied how necessary it...
  21. Hello. Been away for a bit but getting back to...

    Hello. Been away for a bit but getting back to work now. I have gotten deep enough so will definitely take out the cylinders and measure piston ring end gaps etc. My question now is, given how deep...

    Been a while after I jumped into the fire! The cylinder bucket has still not come out. Any tips on how I can do that? I feel stupid for having tried to remove this but now, having tried so, I am...
  23. Jumped into the fire indeed! Okay, I guess it now...

    Jumped into the fire indeed! Okay, I guess it now makes sense for me to take the risk and not take the jugs off and assemble the engine as is and hope that nothing leaks. Btw, what exactly does the...
  24. Okay so here's an update: Since I heard a lot of...

    Okay so here's an update: Since I heard a lot of ppl saying that the base gasket might leak even though it was perfectly fine earlier, I decided to go the extra step and take the cylinder buckets...

    So while taking the head off, I undid the head nuts half turn at a time at first and then gradually took them off in the pattern suggested by the manual and have not touched the bolt in the front...
