You could probably use washers on top of the seal but the shaft had a nice shiny spot there the old seal rode. I wanted the new seal lip to contact the shaft at the same point. I was thinking of using a spacer UNDER the new seal but there are lubrication holes back there and I didn't want to take a chance of blocking them.
Now, I'm wondering what seal is in my distributor..
Yes.. I think I will do just that. It's not that difficult to take that thing apart. The most difficult part for me was getting the circlip out. My circlip pliers work opposite way for this so instead of squeezing the handles together, I was prying the handles apart. :turn::turn::turn: I'm sure you have the correct type.
I think getting the seals online is somewhat of a crapshoot because they don't show the NOK seal number. They show their own part number which is meaningless.
yeah your right. Lost internet for over an hour today then had to go settup my dad's garage sale find, pressurized tank sand blaster. Had the wrong quick connect and half the fittings were standard wrench size and the other metric real pita. Good news is I got my downpipe blasted. For the N2 header. It had some deep rust on it.
But yeah when I was rereading those seals online everybody had the same part number and it wasn't the nok # I did find the website for NOK but it wasn't that much help. Its a parent company in germany.
To me the biggest problem I had was prying those damn rotors loose. It just took some time and patientce
If I was going to assume which is normally not a very good idea lol It might be that all 88-89's are your part number not sure. I don't think my 91 had any extra depth for a taller seal. Ofcourse its been 3 years. I am pretty sure I have a spare cylinder sensor somewhere that could quite possibly be from an 88-89. As there are usually a hell of lot more of those at the local u pull it. If I find it I will take it apart and see which seal it has.
Atleast this should work great for now as long as you got it in square. Much better than leaving you high and dry.
I think it's finally time to start the process for a motor AND transmission swap for my '91 Prelude Si. The car currently has a B21A1 with an automatic transmission. I'm looking to go for a H22 swapped from a 92-95 Prelude with a 5-speed manual transmission. I'm in the process of...
Ok not sure what happened to the ARP Head Stud thread we had many years ago when Steve(Motoxxxman) dumped a lot of information on here, but here is an updated thread that I will add to my sticky in the FAQ section under "--3rd Gen Performance Upgrade Inventory--".
For replacing the factory...
Hey guys, just got my 91lude 2.0si. Kinda a daily for me as I have a fairly well sorted Aw11 MR2. What I'm wondering is, since I have a spare set of wheels that are 15x9 +35 with 225/45 ventus rs4s on em if that is something that will fit stock suspension. After looking for a bit I haven't...
