You can sell the single row crank pulley for an easy $80+ shipping.

It's the one that's a single row lol.

(h23)



The h22 has a normal crank pulley since it has a power steering pump run off it.  The h23vtec accord uses an electric pump on the steering rack, so no need for a belt driven pump thus just a single pulley for the alternator/ac compressor.  I have two of the pulleys, one on my car atm and one in storage.

Ordered a couple parts at the dealership today. On the way out a salesman asked me if he could help me with anything. Now, the only Honda that's coming out soon in the US I'd be interested in is the CR-Z HPD (supercharged, upgraded drivetrain, suspension and brakes), but I told him the only thing I'd be interested in is the upcoming Civic Type R, which he'd obviously never heard of. "Factory turbo Civic? ...well, we won't have that here." I know. But every time I go to the dealer I'm going to bring it up because it's stupid when literaly every other manufacturer sells a sporty turbo 4-banger here, or will soon.

But hey, at least it looks cool. Better than anything else Honda's putting out right now.

If Honda made something to compete with the Fiesta turbo I'd be all over it. But I'd be happy with that Civic, too.

I think that's where they're aiming with that. The sales guy at the dealer didn't know what it was...shameful.

Pasting this here so I can keep track of what I have and edit it as I go along.
The list for the road to an h23 vtec swap;

clutch
clutch release bearing
master cylinder
master cylinder gasket
slave cylinder

brake fluid
motor mounts (if you need them)
timing belt/balance belt
water pump
heater core hoses and clamps
radiator hoses and clamps

oil
oil filter
transmission fluid
rear main seal
balance shaft seals
cam seals
cam plug seal
oil cooler o-ring
front crank seal (must have tool or object to drive this seal in)
RTV
valve cover gasket set
sparkplugs
rosko intake manifold gasket with egr drilled out (makes life easy)
egr port plugs
egr valve gasket
timing tensioner (unless using h23 manual)
p/s belt
a/c belt
grease
50/50 coolant
clutch damper bypass line is also very helpful to have - if you have the extra funds for it (aka rywire line)


Parts to swap between H22a4 and H23 vtec;

upper and lower timing covers
drivers side motor mount bracket
knock sensor (may need to replace)
oil pump
crank position sensor
crank gear
balance shaft gears
distributor
fuel rail
injectors
harness
ac bracket - and pump
p/s bracket - and pump
intake manifold
cam gears, thermostat housing, and water pipe (i think but can't remember 100%)


The knock sensor is prone to breaking during swaps/removal - keep that in mind.

New Honda oil pumps come assembled with all seals (or at least mine did) if you were to buy new (expensive sucker)

Tools;

axle pry bars (the actual ones) work wonders vs a prybar and hammer method

something to drive in the new front main seal - it needs to fit around the crank

17mm
14mm
12mm
10mm
^^ 1/4" sockets and wrenches


At least (1) LONG extension
(1) medium extension
(1) swivel


socket wrenches, at least 1 short and 1 long

phillips and allen screwdrivers

channel locks

grinder/dremel to notch transmission brace

1/2" breaker bars and extensions (at least 2)

19mm 1/2" socket for crank bolt

crank pulley tool

tq specs for everything- as well as tq wrenches

(2) drain pains.  one for oil, one for coolant (always handy to have 2)

(2) GOOD jackstands

slide hammer for EGR ports

Did some work today. I've decided to use my two spare SH wheels on the car and get another two somewhere. The ones I have came from a junkyard and were extremely dirty; one is currently holding the B21A1 in the garage. I cleaned up the other one today and it looks much better. Not perfect, but still much better than the blades, which, as I told Daryl, have curb rash so bad that I call it "curb leprosy". I also began the engine removal process by taking out the battery with its tie-down, plastic tray, and the metal plate that they sit on, as well as the intake. Now that the weather's finally getting warmer to stay (or so it seems), I'll keep working on it and getting parts.

Curb leprosy  Grin

Harbor Freight trip is in order.

I have a 3/8" torque wrench and beam one for the not so important stuff. But a good 1/2" needs to go in the tool chest.

I should be selling the red 3rd gen in April. (That is if I don't keep getting flaked...) I'll buy all the expensive stuff with that. After that it's just $20 here and $40 there.

Today's engine bay work. It's ugly. I've gotten the intake and everything battery-related out.

Battery cables removed and starting to unplug right side harness connectors


Broke the outer casing on this connector...ugh. Hope it's all right. Lost some blood on it too.


Rust on the replacement fenders..ugh

Today we did a little more removal, nothing major. Relieved fuel pressure and took a few vacuum hoses off the intake manifold. Stopped at the point where you start taking power steering components off because they didn't match the diagrams. There's some sort of plug (power steering pressurr something-or-other) that, according to the manual, looks like it's coming off the brake fluid reservoir (odd, when it's for the PS system) but it isn't there on the car.

^^ This...
And went to sears for some 1/2" drive metric sockets.


A couple of other tools were purchased as well. And checked prices for decent torque wrenches.
Ima check the numbers for the max torque required. If we need a 1/2" torque wrench, so be it. But if 3/8" will do do I'll put the $ a half inch would cost into a better 3/8 unit.
