Icon5 Connecting Rod Repair.

I'm getting a 1996 Prelude S with a F22a1 Engine that needs a new Connecting Rod. I was wondering the best way of going about getting to the old one.

Thank you,
-Mark

Re: Connecting Rod Repair.

you dont have to pull the engine. you do have to take the head off. unbolt the rod and push rod up and out of the block.

Re: Connecting Rod Repair.

true that if u have any bad scratches that you can feel with ur fingers on your cylinder wall either get a new block or get your old one bored and honed out if it is fixable i have seen some that are beyond repair. good luck

Re: Connecting Rod Repair.

there is no rod repair. you just replace it. you have a wrist pin that holds the piston onto the rod. this pin is held in w/ two c clips/springs. undo one of the springs with a hook tool try not to bend it. then push the wrist pin out ..... obviously when you change the rod you will need new rod bearings. if the crank is not damaged...... scarred etc then get standard size bearings. ... what happened to the rod in the first place??? your crank might just be damaged .

Hi there, im michael a new member and i've read that your post was here months ago...but i guess you havent find the part your longing for....autopartswarehouse.com has it. I remembered the last time i had a purchase using this site and i saw a lot of OEM parts out there. Speaking of the price, well i can say they're fair when it comes to pricing.

Hope this helps

Thanks.....

Re: Connecting Rod Repair.

Are you sure the crankshaft's rod journal and rod's big end are good? Did you have them checked at a car repair shop?

F22 wrist pins are press fit. Gotta take it to the machine shop or own a press.

Anyway, it doesn't sound like you've got much (if any) engine mechanic experience, so this might be a bigger job than you can handle. If it was an easy fix, the owner would do it and sell the car for more money
