You could always just leave it off, like me. Then again I burned myself pretty bad on the headers when burping the coolant and readjusting the radiator.

As I recall you are correct...I had a hell of a time getting it off and reassembling it. Helps that I have small, strong hands I guess. The hardest part you will find is getting the T-belt over the manual tensioner pulley. It will happen though...I've done two T-belt jobs on H22's now.

Prelude of the Month

EXCELLENT write-up!!!! Thanks for taking the time to take all the pictures and go into such detail- books are nice, but it's a million times easier to see it actually happening.

KUDOS!!!!!

Quick question:
What can I use to support the engine from the bottom when I take the side mount off?

Haha yeah it sucks. When I reinstalled it after getting it powdercoated the bottom bolt broke inside the block
I just left it like that since there's really no way of getting it out without taking everything apart.

A jack with a piece of 2x4 wood between it and the bottom of the oil pan to support the engine.

Hey again,
Is there a rear balance shaft seal that needs to be replaced as well? Or did you just leave the rear balance shaft alone?

What do you mean by balance shaft stuff? The seal? I'd recommend replacing that even if you're gonna reuse the belt.

Edit: Oooh, you're taking out the balance shaft completely. I have no idea then.

I didn't touch the rear balance shaft, only the front shaft seal.

1fastlude: You can't remove the balance shaft. I assume you are just not using your balance shaft belt? You still need to replace the seals.

I know, and inorder to do the balnce shaft delete u have to remove the whole motor. So thats all i wanted to know. I just dont need to buy a new balance shaft belt. All the other stuff needs to be replaced. Mkay..

Why do people remove the balance shaft? Just to free a couple HP? The purpose of the balance shaft is harmonics to maintain a smooth running motor at all RPMS?

Helms manual says that the t-belt should be wrapped around everything and end with the front cam gear and finally the rear cam gear.
Why did you choose to end with the water pump and tensioner pulley?

It's for "NVH" or Noise, Vibration, and Harshness. Basically meaning that it's for passenger comfort. The Prelude was Honda's higher end sports coupe of the time so you'd imagine they would do all they could to make it drive and ride smoothly. But when you're going for all out performance it's just free hp I run without the balancer belt and it just vibrates the pedals a little bit but nothing too bad. My ES motor mount inserts already make my car feel like one of those vibrating massage chairs lol

It's not like the crank pulley which when swapped out for a non-dampened aftermarket pulley will do a number on your bearings

It's not very hard, just time consuming. I would really suggest using this as a supplement, with a service manual as your main reference. Dont do crazy sh!t like this without a FSM! lol

Why did you choose to end with the water pump and tensioner pulley?

Because when using the manual tensioner conversion it's physically impossible to do it in that order without shredding the T-belt on the sharp edges of the cam gears...if you can even get it to go over them.

Hey,
How can I hold the crank to keep it from moving while I tighten the crank bolt?

I use one of these chain pipe wrenches and wrap a piece of one of the old drivebelts around the pulley grooves to protect it from damage from the wrench. You want a longer handle than this one (mine is 24" but you get the idea) I think I paid $15 shipped for my wrench off Ebay, works great.



If you can get the crank bolt loose without an impact gun you are Hercules! (Or just very lucky)
