wildBill83 : 1992 Accord LX

So this is the car I just bought the other day for $550. It's a maroon 4dr LX 5spd.

The good, it has no rust and a decent body and it is a manual.

The bad, it was owned by a moron, who ruined the cooling fans because he thought they were both supposed to run all the time, now the primary fan only runs when A/C is on. This caused the motor to over heat and the water pump to fail. He also decided JB Weld belongs in CV joints.

Needless to say I'm just tearing into the car to find out what else he "fixed".

Nice score, man. Hopefully you don't find too many other issues.

I wish I could find an Accord in that condition with that price or maybe lower.

I have the wire harness out and the coolant system out of the way. I'm in Dallas for the weekend. I'll post photos this coming week.

I'll post some photos up soon, I ran into some troubles and time issues. I hope to have the photos up later today.

It's looking like I need to replace the pass. side knuckle and axle because the PO destroyed the brass axle nut.

Please check my WTS/WTT thread in the classifieds if you have spare F22A1 parts.

Both this thread and the WTS/WTT thread will be updated shortly with photos.

All parts traded for will receive credit and a detailed write up for the community to share in my experience and maybe convince some folks to undertake a large mechanical restoration project or repair on their own.

If you have access to a welder, you should be able to weld a rod onto that nut to spin it off. That way you can just buy a new nut and not a whole knuckle and axle.

Motor is out, look for photos in my motor removal thread once I'm not too lazy to upload them.

I'm debating on how to go about the manual to auto swap on this beast with the most OEM route. Either way it is going to sit under a tree as a shell while I replace seals on the motor and start to tear apart my SE and get it ready for the manual swap.

Damaged axle nut:



I'm thinking a pissed off midget with a jack hammer stopped by to do maintenance on these axles.

I think I got most of them listed now. My main concern is getting her pulled apart and gathering parts to complete her. I updated the first thread with the damages I have found so far.

Since the motor is out, and I plan to do upgrades to the motor in the future, I'm adding an OEM oil cooler to the F22A1 block from my H22A4. Texas heat kills, and this summer is going to be hot!

Anyone know if the F22A1 has holes for a windage tray in the girdle? I wonder if my spare windage tray will bolt right up.... Hmmmm.

Does this mean there are tapped holes or untapped holes? I'm planning to retrofit an H22 windage tray to the F22. Slight modifications might be needed I assume. I'll see when I get the motor taken apart in the next few days I'll know for sure.

No, the holes are tapped. When I got my car the F22A6 had a thrown rod. I got Jeremiah's F22A1 and swapped ALL of my F22A6 parts over, including the windage tray. I left the main caps of the F22A1 intact and bolted the windage tray to it.

I'm also fairly sure that my H22A and F20B windage trays are identical to my F22A6. The only one I'm not sure of is my F23A windage tray. But that one's here in Houston with me so I can look tonight. Not that it really applies to you.

As far as the short block goes, the windage tray and the oil cooler are the only differences between an F22A1 and F22A6 right? Also what are your opinions on the balance shafts anyway? The thought has crossed my mind to remove the BS belt and convert to manual steering and store the working Denso A/C components from the sedan. It is a fleeting thought though and generally passes when I think about cruising slowly in a parking lot with 100+F weather.

Would you happen to have a rear motor mount bracket (block side) for an A4/A6 motor to spare? The A1 M/T rear mount and bracket is, well, let's just say weak looking and not very forgiving. I would like to get an SE/EX rear mount bracket and pair it with the fluid filled non vacuum actuated EX M/T mount. The steering wheel in the LX vibrated worse than my SE with bad mounts.

Spare windage tray from an H22A4 I just cleaned the rust off of:

Oil cooler from H22A4 that I'm adding to the F22A1.

LMK how the oil cooler off the H22A4 works on the F22Ax. Its possible I'd be interested in doing that if it fits well.

It fits like a glove, in fact the o-ring and the center bolt are even the same part number between the F22A6 and H22A*, I haven't checked the oil cooler itself for part number matches, but it is exactly the same size and shape as the one on my F22A6. I should have photos up soon, I have to do a lot of cleaning and work on my block before that though..

Be warned, if installed incorrectly it will be the biggest fastest oil leak you have ever seen!
Look here for oil cooler o-ring info:
http://www.cb7tuner.com/vbb/showthread.php?t=194757

The oil cooler is found only on A/T F22A6 accords, but I believe the H22A4 has is as mandatory equipment.

Thank you! You are aware of my recent modifications to my A4. This should be a fun and cheap modification to finish it off. No A6s at the JY near me but there are two H22A4s.
