i really wanted to get more work done this weekend, but it was just too freakin cold. with both heaters going it wasnt enough. so i put the rack and subframe back together. yay....

i really wanted to replace the inner and outer tie rods with it off the car, but i think i need the whole thing bolted in the car so i can have some leverage to remove the tie rods. it wasnt working very well off the car.

finally got some good wrenching done on the car this weekend, not as much as i wanted but thats always how it goes. i cleaned up the fuel filter mount and installed the new fuel filter. then i completed the fuel line and brake line routing, finsihed bending my vent line and got that all buttoned up.









and then i started replacing heater hoses and other coolant hoses along with the tstat.

when i tried removing the heater hoses i bent the hell out of that tubing from the heater core (i assume thats what it was anyways). so i had to reshape those a bit. i hope i dont have an issue later. but, lots of new coolant hoses. a lot of them had 212K miles on them and i just didnt want to take a chance.



then i moved to the back of the block to attempt to install the ITR oil cooler. i followed the article here, but i ran into a couple of head scratchers.

here is the old one off


here is the new one


what is the part number for the o rings on the ends? i couldnt find them in the parts breakdown anywhere.

also i read in the article to remove a bolt on the block to connect the other end of the oil cooler. is the rusted up bolt just to the upper right of the oil filter the correct one?



and if that is the correct one, is number 1 in this part diagram below what i need to make the connection? it looks like it is, just wanna verify before i finish up yet another order to acura lol



i think thats it for now, i attempted putting the subframe back in myself with a floor jack, but i think i'm going to need another set of hands with me to get everything lined up again, so that will have to wait until this weekend coming up.

if all goes well next weekend, the subframe goes back in and i will drop the transmission and start working on that and the motor. i'm sure that will have me placing at least one more order with delray acura lol

frozen exhaust studs... I'd try PB Blaster, and double-nuts if you haven't already.

yeah i tried that. i'll give it another shot with some different nuts. the ones i had were just basic nuts. i have a feeling i was getting some slippage.

i'll try with some blaster and new nuts and see what happens. i that doesnt work, maybe i'll add some heat to the equation too.

Don't be afraid to really tighten the two nuts against each other. Its been my experience the flange style nuts work best for this as they have more surface area to bite against each other.

Double nuts are the way to go. Youll really have to crank them together. I usually put the box end of the wrench on there first then put the nuts on after that.

so here we are again, another Monday of updates lol.

i thoroughly soaked those exhaust studs with blaster. and here are the results!

Victory!



Strike one...



Strike 2, 3, and Defeat....


frustrating. i tried vice grips on there but they wont bite. i'm thinking i might weld a nut on the end of it at this point and see how that goes.

Guess which one is the brake line i made lol


then i spent a wholllle lot of time trying to re-install the subfame. had several issues with it not lining up right, catching on something, etc.. etc... after a couple hours of messing with it my wife came home and gave me a hand. all bolted back in and re-torqued. i THINK i got the steering shaft collar/connector installed correctly, but i'm not 100% sure. i can't remember how it looked when i took it apart. it looks a little bunched up, but maybe its normal. i'll snap a pic this week sometime.





no pics of the broken bolts i drilled out of the rear sub-frame area just because there is nothing exciting about that.

so after i installed the front subfame, i tried really REALLY hard to do the tie rods. these things are so rusted up they wont budge. i'm open to any suggestions for this. i soaked them in PB and got to open end wrenches lined up to break that nut loose, but they just keep slipping.



i'm really leaning towards just grabbing my sawzall and hacking the outers off, sliding that boot off, then using the tie rod tool to remove the inners.

i did a few other misc. things, nothing really worth noting. i'm waiting on my order from Delray to show up to finish the ITR oil cooler install. other than that, i'm going to try to remove a few thiings here and there on the transmission after work this week so i just have to drop it out come Friday night or saturday. then the "fun" stuff ensues lol.

Sparkle wrench/red wrench/flame wrench/torch

Get them nearly red and then hit them with the wrenches.

A MAPP gas torch is pretty cheap and will get a ton hotter.
