I see some complete swaps at hmotorsonline. Search the Accord forums for info, I believe there's a write-up on this with pictures around here somewhere. The Accord tranny would work fine, it just won't be quite as fun as using the proper H22 tranny. Rotate the engine again, 180 degrees counterclockwise, and adjust the number-four cylinder valves as needed. It is at the bottom of the oil pan. Go out and get 5 quarts of oil.
Considering fit, swap time, efficiency, etc. Installation is reverse of above. A parts store like Autozone for instance or Pep Boys will have the oil filter number there. Either 5W or 10W explained later. You've succesfully done an oil change on your 1992 Accord! Think of it as posi-traction for a front wheel drive application. Anyone know how hard it is and apprx.
I've also never really messed with mods like turbo or superchargers, or whatever. I've seen lots of auto H22 swaps on other sites for example , but H-Motors is one of the most trusted names for sure. A 17mm metric socket will fit it. Add 4 quarts of 5W-30 or 10W-30 oil. Check and adjust the valves on the number-three cylinder in the same manner as the number-one cylinder valves were adjusted. Loosen it, being careful not to strip it.
Improved throttle response and power are common. Let me start off by saying that I'm new to owning a Honda and I'm progressively learning more about the make. A Honda will hold 4 to 4. The oil will come pouring out at you pretty fast. Replace the oil filter back onto the screw making sure it seats nice and tight. . Get underneath the car, jack stands or a pair of ramps is nice to have.
I like working on cars and stuff. Make sure to not overtighten, that'll create problems next oil change. As for the gearing question, it will effect your acceleration. Put your car down so it's level off ramps or jack , and check oil. Remove the four 10 mm bolts that attach the upper timing-belt cover to the valve cover and cylinder head using a 10 mm socket and ratchet. You need to buy a lot of parts and be pretty mechanically inclined.
Drain your oil, and look straight up above the pan and the oil filter should be looking right back at you, it will be small. Lube the gasket around the filter with either oil or grease. Is the H22 tranny, indeed, hard to find? Unbolt and remove the mount to be removed. Has anyone personally done it or had it done somewhere? I know you mentioned the F22 tranny had longer gears. To adjust the valve clearance, loosen the 12 mm jam nut on the adjuster and tighten or loosen the adjuster using a screwdriver. Sometimes they can get stuff that's not listed on there site. After it is all drained out, replace the plug, first finger tight, then finally tightening it two or three semi-hard turns to complete the seal.
I greatly appreciate the tips and advice. Unplug the spark-plug wires from the spark plugs. You might want to call H-Motors and ask if they have any auto H22 swaps. I can perform tune ups and change parts and stuff of that nature but I must say I've never taken on a task as large as removing the engine or transmission. How does that affect having an H22 engine running on a F22 Auto tranny? Check valve clearance on the number-one cylinder by slipping the correct thickness feeler gauge between the valve and the rocker arm. Tighten the jam nut while holding the adjuster still with the screwdriver.
Remove the the two 10 mm nuts that attach the valve cover to the cylinder head using a 10 mm socket and ratchet. I can understand if it turns out to be a little more complicated but I just wouldn't know if it's worth the time and effort. I don't know, it might be easier than I think but I've never done it. For a do-it-yourselfer, that is? Maaaan, i need to get this going. It may be necess … ary to manipulate the jack somewhat once things are unbolted. It is directly above the location of the oil pan drain. Also make sure that you have a pan on the garage floor or ground so that the oil may be able to drain fast.
I know this type of information has been thrown left and right throughout the years but I can't seem to put it all together. It will look like a cover to a liquid clothes detergent bottle. I've read some contradicting posts and I'm just not sure what to believe. Don't overtighten, and also remember if the filter won't go on, don't force it- chances are it's either on at an angle or it's the wrong type of filter. Use a suitable jack and piece of wood to support the engine. Exhaust valves should have a clearance between. As far as converting to manual, it's quite a bit more complicated then just a straight auto-to-auto transmission swap.
