    And the slushbox is out. What a pain in the back... upper and lower.




    Can. Not. Wait. Until my sparkly-clean engine and trans are in. The wagon's definitely getting a trip to the car wash once the F22's out. The entire engine bay is this disgusting.





    Came home afterwards to the rest of the parts I need from Honda, delivered a day early! Enough fluid for three quick changes, to really flush out whatever was in there before; pads for the clutch and brake pedals; clutch release fork boot; a couple drain plug washers; the output seals for the axles; and the reverse sensor that was missing.

    I hope so too! I've never owned a manual car (the sedan and RSX being the only other cars I've owned), so I'm not as familiar with them and am doubly nervous, haha. I need to keep an eye on my budget, but I could have this running within the next two weekends. I just remembered I still want to get a stock-spec clutch for testing purposes, so I'm not wearing out the Exedy before the H22 goes in. I have a friend who's owned several manual cars, so he'll be making sure it feels as it should.

    This is exciting. I have never done this, but I hope that it goes smoothly.

    These are worthwhile upgrades. Let us know how the feel is.

    ARP flywheel bolts work, thankfully. Found some pressure plate bolts on eBay as well, which just arrived today. As I refresh this transmission and figure out what I still need, a cart at Majestic is building up...


    Cleaned up the transmission as best I could. I have a bolt plugging the hole for the missing reverse sensor, but I'd rather get that new than from the junkyard, so that's in the Majestic cart. I did find a proper breather tube cap at the 'yard, though!




    Installed the Speedfactory detent springs:




    As well as the MTEC shift springs:






    And the new slave:

    That is pretty irritating, but I’m sure I’ve done something like that before. Not knowing if someone left it to come back to or not.

    Another story of "just my luck." So yesterday, when my injury cut my junkyard trip short, I was in the middle of grabbing the clutch pressure plate bolts. I didn't have a 12-point 10mm socket on me, so I was using the too-thick box end of a combo wrench. It wasn't quite fitting in the tight space, so each bolt was taking time and effort to break loose. Which is when my hand slipped. In my pain, I didn't think to throw the four bolts I had already freed into my tool box, and left. I went back today with the right socket, and the four bolts were still laying right where I left them, in plain sight on the pristine trunk carpet I laid out right next to the engine block. But someone took the two that were still on the clutch! They didn't take the pressure plate or clutch disc, just the two bolts. In fact, the clutch kit was still attached to the engine, via the dowel. I can't remember having felt so cheated before. It's not that big a deal, I can get those two remaining bolts online... but why?
    OMG that sounds irritating. I would actually be in a funk because of it. It looks like you have a backup plan however.

    Hoping to solve my too-short automatic flex plate bolt issue with an upgrade (I heard it's not good to reuse old bolts for this application?), we'll see if they fit. Part number officially lists them only for B- and D-series, but searching for "ARP H22 flywheel bolts" still brings these up...

    I think you are aiming for a 4.0 5th gear ratio like the F22 and not the 4.2 5th like the H22. H22 tranny installs are not fun in our cars without dropping the engine or removing it. So ya, no way of knowing unless you open it. But I have a spare TWT4 at home, you could put it in 5th and count how often the axle turns on 1 rotation and compare to other transmissions....

    Picked this up today, and it's confusing me. The gear ratio table that's posted on all the forums only lists the M2K4 transmission as available in the Australian Prelude Si and SRS, and the European-market 2.3i and 2.3i 4WS. I found it in a left-hand drive Si (H23A1) 4WS. The car had a crappy primer 'paint job' on both the body and stock wheels, and those generic eBay projector headlights, and nothing else done as far as I remember, so I feel like the owner wouldn't be the type to source an overseas transmission. The confusion sucks, because I can't tell if this has the 4.0 or 4.2 final drive without cracking it open and counting teeth. I can't be bothered. It's got a 7-month warranty, so I'll just give it a couple oil changes and worry about a tranny build later. This photo is after taking it to the car wash with some degreaser. I'll properly detail it before putting it in the car.




    It was an unexpectedly beautiful day to be at the junkyard though, especially after yesterday's frigid, heavy winds. Right up until I slammed my knuckle into the block and got this gnarly flap of skin that was literally making me sick to my stomach to look at, that is. I'm such a wuss. It forced me to stop early, so I'll have to go back tomorrow for the little pieces I missed.

    Not sure what you mean. The shifter feels smooth, but then it's not connected to anything yet.

    Looks great! My clutch pedal is higher than my brake pedal too. Do you find the shift dodgy or a little sticky now with the prelude shifter?
