Having a few issues with questions

1. My clutch has gone out due to leaking rear main seal. It was going out but the seal made it worse. Any tips on breaking it in for someone who never broke in a clutch before? I know drive under 4000rpm, not gun it, drive it like an old lady, no highway. Will it make the shifter more loose rather than stiffy? I also had an issue of it not fulling going into gear when in neutral at say a light and whatnot. I would have to take my foot off the clutch then put it back in then it goes in.

2. I got my timing belt replaced by a guy that works at Honda on the side. Took it to the dealership and knows he works there. I get a weird sound now.


3. Another answer to the first question. I'm not sure of the state of my flywheel. How do I know if I need a new flywheel without pulling it off? Should I just buy another flywheel when I buy my OEM Exedy clutch? How much is a resurface if it comes down to it?

4. My oil pan is leaking. At least that's what a dude told me. But I've been told many things. That is needs a new gasket and that the Prelude doesn't use a gasket, but rather Hondabond. Who is more correct?

5. I have only put about 600 miles on my car since I have bought it. I had to give it an oil change the first day. Is it okay to drain my oil when I do all my oil seals, etc. and keep it. Or should I just go ahead and replaced it? If I replace it. Should I put the seafoam in first then then drain it again? Same thing with my tranny fluid. It doesn't have that much mileage on it, since I replaced it.

6. Do I have to replace the CMS and CSC when I replace my clutch also? Or can I wait until it actually gives me problems? Little short on money and don't really wanna replace it until it needs replacing. Because right now I have the clutch, axle, lower ball joints, seals to replace.

7. I noticed on some videos that they pulled out the cam cap seal without taking off the VC and valley. Can I do the same with the H22?

A lot of this work is being done the same day as my clutch. Another Prelude owner is helping with all this. Thought it would be the best time to get it up to par. I've tried searching the forums on some of this stuff and the stupid search thing wouldn't work. Said no hits, etc.

As for number 4... Hondabond it. I bought a oilpan gasket, and 2 months later the gasket had failed and it was leaking bad. I used only hondabond the second time and its been 6 months and no drips.

5. If you take it out, you might as well put in fresh oil.

7. Yeah you just need to take the valve cover off, and remove the brace on top the cam.

Re: Having a few issues with questions

I'd say get new oil. i can't hurt. oil pan most people use hondabond on it. tranny fluid should be fine. i'd say new flywheel but atleast get it resurfeaced. most people replace the slave but you don't have to. it will make shifting stiffer but will wear in in a little time. that's all i have answers to. haha

Well, update on the timing belt sound. A fellow BBA luder thinks the timing belt might be rubbing the balance shaft belt. So I have to take off my valve cover and see the edges to see if it is. :( Will post another update on what are of my findings.

Re: Having a few issues with questions

Well, I rotated the engine anti-clockwise and looked at the belt. The mechanic did replace the belt. Saw the Honda marks on it, etc. One thing I did notice. There is like half a centimetre off the cam gears. I don't know if this is normal or not. There are no rough edges on the belt. So, I put everything back together. Started the car and the sound was gone. I honestly have no idea what caused the sound. The car does make a hum sound, but I think that's normal. I don't know if it will come back or not.
