Re: Rebuild help... Bearings..

If I were you, I would replace the rod bearings with new OEM honda ones, thats what I did. However they are color coded with aprox. 5 different colors, for ex- yellow, brown, red etc. mine were yellow, but if you are not sure bring one into the honda dealership and the mechanics can tell you.

As far as the head bolts go, you do not NEED to replace them. Though it is HIGHLY recommended. If I were you I would buy them. Good luck with the build man.

Re: Rebuild help... Bearings..

If you're replacing all the bearings, I'd say go with OEM. Lots of reputable engine builders recommend OEM bearings. Might as well blueprint yo **** while you're at it.

Re: Rebuild help... Bearings..

OEM bearings, arp studs.

why go through the trouble of a rebuild just to let it fail?
Don't use cheap parts, don't reuse parts.

Re: Rebuild help... Bearings..

1: ACL is a very reputable company the bearings they offer are well spoken of on other sites. As for what they can withstand, Comparable to exceeding OEM parts you don't need to be shy ACL is a legitimate company. If you are aiming toward boost or high revving NA applications I would recommend looking toward Cosworth.

2: Yes and No, You don't need to EVERY time you remove your head. They are OK to go one more time of being torqued to spec. I do every time simply because better safe than sorry and they aren't expensive compared to what they withhold, Really it is for you to decide.

Re: Rebuild help... Bearings..

i have had both acl and oem bearings none have failed on me. i would do acl bearings, the crank has not been cut right??? so go w/ acl standard size bearings for h22a4. WITH OUT A DOUBT.... do arp head studs. you will not be sorry. while your in there i would do hondata intake manifold gasket... cause the paper gaskets suck.... and clean the head up good. good luck.

REPLACE THE HEAD STUDS. the stock ones cant be reused, they were under 100-110ft lbs of force, that makes them stretch and wont seal the deck a second time. honda techs at dealers say that. arp is the way to go
