93' H23 Install

In the process of FINALLY getting this thing back into my car. Had it up on the lift and was having problems getting the mounts aligned.

Whats the sequence most are doing it?
And what are the best lift points for an even lift?

I dipped the tranny in first then lined up that mount and everything is very close but still off. The engine seemed to not be able to push back any further to align the rear mount correctly.

If its any help I'm using the Innovative mounts.

I read somewhere that it might help a little to install the mounts first then lower in the engine and bolt them to the block. Yay/Nay?

Yes, dip the tranny in first, but don't bolt up the tranny mount yet. You gotta further drop the tranny about 6-10 more inches AND push the motor/tranny as far over to the pass side as possible; this is to gain enough room for the crank pulley on the opposite side to clear the chassis/strut tower so you can drop the front side of the motor in place.


I'd start with the hardest (rear) mount first. If it helps, loosen the bolts that hold the rear engine bracket to the engine to give you some wiggle room.
Than tranny/drivers side mount, and lastly the front.

Re: 93' H23 Install

Alright, thats what I thought. I'll give it another go tomorrow.
Thanks. I'll give updates.

Also is the front mount 100% necessary? Read a few places that it isn't.
Reason I'm asking is I don't currently have the bolts for the "Front Engine Stop (bracket)"
And can't actually find them on the diagram on hondapartsnow.

Re: 93' H23 Install

If you've upgraded the other mounts (which you have), than no the front isn't necessary.
