We're back, and better than ever!

Hey everyone. Weíre back!

We spent the last few weeks getting our software upgraded from 2005-spec vBulletin to this shiny, new version. For the first time in half your CB7ís life, CB7tuner.com is running up to date forum software! 😃
We sought to keep the same general feel, along with our beloved black and orange color scheme. You may see some things changing here and there as we make some aesthetic tweaks, but all should be running smoothly now.

In addition to looking all fancy, this new version should be extremely mobile friendly. Hopefully that will make it more enjoyable for those of you that do most of their browsing on their phone!

Pandemic and cp[mike] literally busted their asses over the last couple of weeks to make this new software a reality. Without them, this never would have happened.


So, welcome back!
Feel free to ask any questions, give us your observations, and offer suggestions (no promises on implementing anything, but who knows!) There's a post for discussion in the Beginner OT section of the site.
Also, if you experience any weird errors, please let us know ASAP. We tested everything pretty thoroughly, but Iím certain we havenít squashed all the bugs just yet.

-Mike

From this point on until otherwise briefed, posting in the general section of Performance Tech is prohibited. The only thing to remain here will be the stickies. We would just delete this section, but that would cause unintended results.


The majority of the threads created can appropriately be placed in one of the Performance Tech sub-forums or Technical; and the posting of them here is detrimental to the activity of said forums. If you have any questions about where you need to place your thread PM me or one of the other mods.


For the most part you all have caught on without this post, but there have been a few habitual offenders that forced me to say this.


Everyone will get a couple of warnings from here on out, after that I just start deleting threads.

Again if you have any questions, PM me or one of the other mods.

    Please Help, Compression Woes..

    Copy and pasted sendin a text to a friend..

    Last yrs it was 190 190 190 210 dry
    When we did it tue it was 180 180 110 150

    When I did it today I had the gas pedal down and I got 190 190 200 and 200.... with foot not on pedal I got 185 185 185 185

    Perhaps since my battery was dyin the other day it didn't get full crank. I did each test today 4 times per cylnder.. 2 holdin gas 2 times not holding gas... and I also did the water thing.. the car was warm enough. Held it at 2500rpm sprayed mist intside throttle. And nothing really happened. I was doin it for 15mins. Didn't think there's a need for wet if I got nice #s.

    It's possible that there's carbon buildup on the valve or valve seat. Especially if you're not running the correct ECU for the engine, or if you've been driving with a CEL on for a long time.

    Try using Seafoam.

      I found this...1/2 F22A1 Part Numbers: Intake: 14711PT3AOO and exhaust: 14721POJAOO. H23A1 Part Numbers: intake: 14711PT2OOO and Exhaust: 14721PT2OOO.

      Aren't they the same then f22a1 and h23a1

      F22a1 intake is 14711 and exh is 14721
      H23a1 intkae is 14711 and exh is 14721

      Doesn't it sound rite? Just the last part # is different

        get the car upto operating temp/hot, then come back hold the idle at about 2500 rpm and spritz water into the throttle body, itll instantly turn into steam and make the carbon deposits explode and release..no joke.

          @erik how much water??? How would I know if the carbon will release, will smoke come outta the muffler.. I need a lil more understanding.

          And can u please find out about the f22/h23 valve stems... I thought they were the same...

            as much as you need, you dont spray in much at a time, like a spray bottle set just above stream but not a fine mist. theres some videos, its really easy though..yeah youll see steam coming out, maybe some black watery shit too..
            eric the car guy, he uses a cup. id use a spray to get a better atomization which would allow the water to flow into all the intake tracts equally
            https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KFtp_jmLF3k
            "I get asked all the time about using Seafoam or other products to clean an engine. Granted, those products if used correctly do have their place but with something as simple as a cup of water you can decarbonize your engine. The thing is DON'T USE TOO MUCH! You can actually damage your engine if you put too much in so be careful. That said, on a fully warmed up engine a couple of squirts of water in the engine can break up carbon deposits in your engine. Just before I rebuilt the carburetor on the Ford I decided to perform this procedure and make a video about it. It's a cheap effective way to clean your engine. Like I said though, don't use too much or you'll be putting an engine in."



            valve stem seals? I got some ebay for really cheap that were OEM for my h22 if thats what you need ill find you the link, they were like 1.50 a piece.

                I'm scared of the water trick. I don't wanna spray 2 much and bam. New motor..


                I do have a water bottle that sprays in a stream not mist.


                And I meant valves cuz my buds think a valve could. b burnt which is y I lost comptessiom. I could've f/h have the same valves.. same part # look above in my post.

                  luckily we have side draft throttle bodies, to do any damage youd have to pour a lot in all at once which be hard sideways..but its your call bud..

                    The first part of the part number will be the same for pretty much all Honda engines. it's the last 6 that tell you the specific model and trim that the part is for. So 14711 is the number for all intake valves and 1472 is the same for all exhaust valves.

                    PT3 & P0J are what you are looking for to fit an F22A1/A4/A6

                    F22A*
                    Intake valve = 14711-PT3-A00
                    Exhaust valve = 14721-P0J-A00

                    H23A1
                    Intake valve = 14711-PT2-000
                    Exhaust valve = 14721-PT2-000


                    Have you checked your valve adjustment? Could be a burnt valve or it could be something as simple as a tight valve that requires adjustment.

                      3 days ago I did it again cuz the car didn't want to start. It was 180 180 110 150.
                      Hmmm. You used to have very good compression in all cylinders, but now you have a very substantial drop in adjacent cylinders 3 and 4, while 1 and 2 have remained more or less the same. To state the obvious, cylinder 3 has lost 80 psi, 4 has lost 50 psi.

                      It may be coincidental that you might have issues in 3 and 4 that are affecting those two cylinders individually, but I suspect it more likely that you have a single issue that is affecting two adjacent cylinders at once, and that issue would most probably be a failed head gasket. Any other symptoms that might suggest this?

                      I'm not saying you definitely have a failed head gasket, but that you have the compression loss in adjacent cylinders is at least suspicious. Note that it's quite possible (even likely) to have a HG leak between adjacent cylinders that only involves cylinder gasses leaking from one cylinder to the other, and doesn't necessarily involve cylinder pressures leaking into the cooling system or crankcase, nor for oil and coolant to mix.

                      The HG is very narrow between adjacent cylinders due to the close proximity of the bores to each other, and between the cylinders there are no coolant or crankcase void passages. The failed HG can allow pressure from the compression and combustion strokes of cylinder A to leak into the lower pressure zone that is cylinder B (when B isn't on the compression or combustion stroke). A leak at this point may not be symmetrical, i.e. it may leak more badly when leaking from cylinder A into cylinder B than from cylinder B into cylinder A, which would account for the difference in pressure loss in each cylinder.

                      -------------------

                      For 'water cleaning', you could pour water into the plenum via the PCV hose. If you have a plastic sauce bottle then squirting water from that should be OK so long as you do it with the rpm held somewhere between about 2000 and 3000 rpm. The orifice in the sauce bottle should restrict how much water you can squirt in per second. I think I'd use two or three bottlefuls of water.

                      You should see some dirty steam coming from the exhaust, if not then you probably aren't generating enough steam in the cylinder to do much 'steam cleaning'. The rpm will probably 'stumble' as you introduce the water, so have one hand on the throttle body cable wheel to keep the rpm up as you squeeze in the water. It might help to 'hunt' the rpm up and down as you do this.

                        So, based on everything above, here's some stuff to do before testing compression again tomorrow.

                        Try 2 or 3 sprays of water either through the TB or the PCV (that's where I did my seafoaming) at a time. Check your exhaust for steam and dirty water. You won't blow your motor this way. Also, get a feeler gauge and do a valve clearance adjustment to make sure the lashes are correct. I believe the settings for an F20A are .010" for the intake valves and .012" for the exhaust valves if the heads are indeed the same as F22A heads. You want to be on the loose side and stop tightening when you feel a slight drag on the feeler gauges. http://www.denlorstools.com/home/dt1...honda_car.html

                            How would I go about a over tightened valve thru valve adjustment???



                            Also will my motor fail it runs fine now... will I make it thru winter???

                            I have coolant in the rad its not low, all fluids r ok. Oil isn't milky.

                              That link I sent you in my last post takes you through the process. You need to go to an auto parts store to get a feeler gauge that has .010" and .012" thick measuring teeth.

                              Will your motor fail? We talked about this last night. It's not worth the risk of driving it through the winter without finding the problem and fixing it. It looks like you have a friend willing to help you out with a set of valves, which is awesome.

                              After you do a steam cleaning and a valve adjustment, check compression like you are going to and let us know the readings.
