The technical term for them is cannon plugs. You can find all sorts of them if you search for them that way. They are pretty standard in the aviation industry.

Can't see that crank pully working at all for ya. The engine moves around quite a bit but i guess a really big hammer will do the trick too.

I got tons of results for "cannon plugs." Thanks for that tip!

Raf, I'm hopeful that it will/can fit. I'll have to get some upgraded motor mounts for sure! It's not as bad as it looks on the pictures. I think I can get a good 5mm dent in that spot on the frame plus play around with the motor mount tolerances and try to shift everything over to the passenger side.

This also means P/S has to be deleted. I'm looking at the AP1 rack mounting holes and they appear to be close to the Lude's. If it bolts up, I can run an EPS system and have a quicker ratio.

Man I love the details of your resto/build. That MilSpec wiring looks to be tedious as hell though.

Sonik were you able to figure out anything with the AP1 rack? I'm curious if you could run one, we might be able to run them on the CB7 as well.

Sorry for the lack of updates in here. I've been working on a few financial "leeches" that I'm trying to get rid of. I have been doing a lot of thinking, but not much wrenching.

Rilas, I don't think we can use the AP1 rack because the tie rods attach to the front of the knuckle in the S2k while ours attach to the rear. We would be steering right to go left and vice versa. I have been looking at the 10th gen Civic rack with that fancy dual-pinion eps system. I just need to figure out if it can run standalone like the AP1 rack can.

As far as installing the pulley...I had started to cut a notch into the frame for fitment, but stopped early because I had to move the car out the garage to work on another car lol. I'll have weld or get someone to weld a little reinforcement plate after I'm done.

The stock pulley is back on and I've been driving a bit without P/S. It's not bad until really tight turns at low speeds. That would be a deal breaker on an autocross circuit. I also bought some Innovative 95a mounts. My car has much more character now .

8th/9th gen Civic Sis have a conventional EPS rack IIRC.

And just like that, the Prelude was traded in to focus on the RX-7.

We bought a 2018 Civic coupe LX for the wife's commuter. It's loaded enough, it'd be perfect if it had a sunroof, but it will do. It has three pedals and a steering wheel, barebones and awesome. The 40+ mpg is very nice. I'll have to make a new thread for the RX-7

I have to get it driving first. I dropped the trans last week and the clutch literally disintegrated on me. Clutch fibers are itchy like fiberglass

I'll replace all the worn 30+ year old suspension parts and drive the shit out of it, take it to some Auto-x events, swap a carb'd 20b and straight pipe it out the side to blow everyone's eardrums out. Not too much.
