H23a1 further problems (not giving up) 92 lude si 4ws

image.jpgWell I almost had everything worked out with my stock h23a1motor.. From when I first bought the car back in 2012 till now.. At first had some really bad compression (oil was leaking into the combustion chamber, bad piston rings was my initial guess) literally go through about 4 quarts in 2 days it was awful. Eventually I stopped filling it with oil and sure enough she went 😅
Scraped by with what I could and eventually bought a replacement h23a1. Been tough with this thing being my daily, classroom, and someday project. With it breaking down (lightly) here and there it sure has been a big learning experience considering I didn't know a thing about cars until I bought it, joined this forum, and started looking up diys. (Thanks preludezone people! 😆)
All in all I finally thought I got the emissions finally passable and just last week I two days before I was going to get it tested I had the crank pulley bolt back out and somehow also strip itself from the crankshaft.. Either I get a replacement shortblock (found one reasonable out here by my local honda shop $300 for a bottom end complete) or get a new crankshaft. Might just go with full bottom end.. Can't afford new bearings and such 😅
This car has been fun as hell to work on though that's for sure.. Definitely will be making my own build thread when the day comes, have plenty of plans.

FANTASTIC!!!




Many days I sit at the breakfast table drinking my coffee and eating my muffin, contemplating the future of the Prelude nation...thinking it don't look good.


Then I read this post.
You made my day, month, year Risen Saint! Thank you!

Pretty much got flamed for driving like a jackass and was told to slow down. And I'll be damned, slowing down fixed it.
