You need some speaker grills? Cause I have a few sets of speaker grills laying around. At least I think I still have them...

so, I got the key today. thought i'd entertain myself and try starting it to see whats wrong. used a jumpstarter. connected to the battery, turn the key...... VROOM....???? what? I thought they said the engine gave out? a puff of smoke under the car and I can tell the flex pipe is busted so I try to put it in gear to move the car. 1st gear nothing, 2nd gear, nothing, 3rd, 4th, 5th, reverse... nothing... so i guess it wasn't spun bearings. looks like somebody toasted the clutch.

so it looks like i'll be do a clutch job instead or engine swap. I know most of you are booing me right now because you wanted an engine swap. but if this works out, I can have this black one as a daily driver and then focus on swapping my green one. biggrin.gif biggrin.gif


I would check the axles first. Just to rule them out. You just never know.

I'm good on the speaker grills. they were just taken off for some reason?

yeah, talked with Daniel and we said it could be clutch, axles, or cables.
but I think cables might be ok because I can feel it go into each gear. just gotta wait for better weather to take a look. it's been 50s and rain this past week and this weekend looks just as bad too. rained all day today.

yeah same thing with my RA24 when I bought it. the guy was like I don't know what's wrong with it, can't get it to start. we pushed it onto a dolly and towed it home. I started working on it, poured some starter fluid down the carb and it started just like a toyota should. lol

update:
so this past weekend we rolled it from the middle of the yard to underneath the carport and while we were rolling I did hear a clunking/scraping noise as we rolled it but didn't have time so I just left it at that.

Today, I went ahead and started it in gear and in the video you can hear a noise as it starts but then it goes away. With it in 1st and my foot on the clutch, it sounds normal but as soon as i let my foot off the clutch, you hear the clunking noise. so anytime the clutch isn't in now, it will clunk.

here's a video for a better explanation.

You should take a black light to the interior and see what comes up....

While you're replacing that throw-out bearing, drop in an LS4 while you're at it. Might as well since the transmission is coming off.

Living dangerously there I see.....I like your style.

I'll think about that LS4.... I may send the imaginary one I have saved aside that I was going to use for the Accord.

but....... just to be safe, I'm gonna do this and put it all there for a bit, while I contemplate my life choices....




and is that imaginary LS4 the v-tec compatible version? those are much nicer than the regular ones.

I think that the tan interior kinda seems to look a little better BUT it's hard to keep clean thus black carpet is better.

I like the 25th Anniversary seats and the confetti Recaro seats the most, oh and the JDM seats that had that interesting clawed stripe pattern thing going on.
