motor items before install

So talked with my mechanic and he gave me a list of things to get before I bring the motor to him to install. These are the items he wants me to pick up and the * means he will get from honda
* 2 cam seals
1 front main seal
1 rear main seal
timing belt
water pump
alternator belt
power steering belt
oil, oil filter
transmittion fluid (honda brand)
*valve covre gasket
*auxilary camseal/shaft seal
*counter balance shaft seal (honda)

The total came out to around $320 give or take a few

just wanted to share, he said that it better to just replace these items instead of having the motor installed and then having problems later down the road. what do yall think? all this seems legit to me

seems pretty good to me, I cant really think of anything else you may need when installing a used motor... the two cam seals he is speaking of I am sure are the ones on the timing belt side, you may also want to cam seal for the intake cam on the transmission side of the motor.

Re: motor items before install

When I did my swap I wish I had done the fuel filter as well. it's not the easiest thing to replace when the motor is in the car. While you are in there, might as well, and they are only about 30 bucks.

Very true, our fuel filter is suppose to be a "lifetime filter" as in you do not have to change it, but I would anyways.

Re: motor items before install

You can also get the valve cover gasket from napa. The 1 made in japan I believe the brand is atrom it will fit flush in there not like the ones autozone sell. Just trying to help

Re: motor items before install

go ahead and throw in a crank seal. and something that was told to me in another thread. make sure there is a balancer shaft seal retainer
for some reason when i just had my timing belt done it didnt have one on there. also maybe a new blanacer shaft seal while your at it. I also agree with getting the fuel filter done i had mine replaced also and it was VERY clogged up. and yea making it more expensive but definetly not necessary, if your not going to do the manual tensioner swap then possibly a new hydraulic tensioner.

Re: motor items before install

Do a manual tensioner. The auto tensioner is not reliable. Trust me on this. Every motor I have built or timing belt I have done on an h22 I did the conversion.
