Engine Removal for Noobs

I was pulling my HF's 8v for the B7 swap and got bored so I decided to do a write-up for noobs to use. This is a pretty simple process and doesn't require a whole lot to do. Though this was done on a CRX the basic process should be the same other than having shifter cables instead of the shift rods.

Materials:

Sockets (10-20 and a 32mm for the axles)
Ratchets
Wrenches
Hammer
Ball Joint Seperator
Jack
Jack Stands
Wire Cutters
Screwdriver
5/16 Punch (bitch pin removal)
Cherry Picker





Those are the basic tools you need. I have a few extras I use but they're not necessary in most cases. Now onto the swap. I took a combo of video and pics every so often so just about everything should be covered.

First get the car on jack stands. I also like to put my wheels under the sides of the car as extra protection in case anything falls. I also like having it up since it helps you avoid leaning over as much and getting a sore back.



Once the car is up. I remove the battery, battery tray, and intake piping. The battery requires a 10mm socket and the battery tray is a 10 and has 1 12mm iirc.

Once you have that done go ahead and unplug the wiring harness for the engine from the chassis harness at the strut towers.

This fuel feedline to the fuel rail is a 17mm.



I also forgot to mention to disconnect the fuel return line here.

After that is done I like to take care of everything underneath the car before pulling any coolant hoses. This includes unbolting the header, disconnecting the shift linkage, and removing the axles.

Once that is taken care of you can pull the axles. This only takes 2 bolts to do. One is the 32mm axle bolt and the other is the 17mm lower ball joint bolt.

Part 6

I usually position the floor jack right about here when I jack up the LCA. This helps to keep the ball joint from spinning when you go to unbolt it.



Part 7

Once the ball joint and axle nuts are removed, you can then pop the axles out.

Part 8

Once the axles are pulled you're done underneath the car. From here you can disconnect the vacumn and coolant lines.

Part 9

Once all of this is done, the engine should be out.

I put it in this section of the forum since it's directed at noobs who are more inclined to need the write-up. Thanks for adding the info on the axle nut.

Have you moved your pics to another storage spot by any chance?

Jon is very helpful Jon is very helpful
You've got to quit bumping these old threads where the OP has not been online for YEARS...

Pictures are pretty pointless. All they show are some tools (impact sockets, hammer, and a pickle fork), engine jack/hoist, front of a CRX, and picture of his intake manifold fuel system. Nothing pertaining to the CB chassis at all to be honest.
