Advice needed

Recommended Posts

So started getting few  bits for the 1.8 engine rebuild, but in two minds to put the engine in my 1.5 or keep in original shell. My 1.5 is real tidy on the bodywork and the 1.8 has some scraps and dents. How difficult is the swap going to be, thought’s please

The swaps dead easy mate. You'll have the engine out of the 1.8 anyway.

Mb6 are becoming rare but if you've got a tidy shell I'd be inclined to use that one.

To be fair there both rust free, 1.5 is 80,000 miles and 1.8 50,000, both never been welded, 

do I have to change the front hubs to allow for the 1.8 shafts, and the Rear roll bar and axle brace bolt straight on the 1.5 ?, also is the clocks straight forwaRd swap 

thanks

Yes all goes across apart from possibly the little brace under the subframe.

What you gonna do use ACL bearings? 

I'd just go to honda for head gasket and rings etc. Don't want any issues.

Can often find genuine Honda stuff cheap on eBay.

Can try lings honda aswell. If anything you can at least get part numbers off there even if you don't like the prices

it looks the same, but that gasket on the far right if that's a rocker one then it looks more like a D series one!

I always use https://japserviceparts.co.uk/ for stuff like that, i just pick dc2 as the car. 

In fact it looks like that's them selling the same kit on eBay https://japserviceparts.co.uk/products/integra/honda-integra-dc2-type-r/seals-and-gaskets/honda-integra-dc2-b18c-full-gasket-set-made-in-japan.html

Gonna have a look through my build photos. One thing I noticed when I built mine it almost fits upside down. You defo got it on the right way.

And the dowel in the block/head isn't chewed up is it? If had a deck or skim job may have been pulled with pliers and not sitting correctly now.
