Did some work tonight, just got in. Started installing the ITR oil cooler. I think i got the right bolt out, does this look right?danteisme's 1996 DB8-Found and Rebuild Thread-imageuploadedbyag-free1457239170.713127.jpg

Started getting stuff ready to drop the transmission. Took the starter off and yikes! danteisme's 1996 DB8-Found and Rebuild Thread-imageuploadedbyag-free1457239106.159508.jpg

I got a good portion of the bolts out, dropped the lower torq mount, and removed the flywheel cover. Hopefully it will be off the car tomorrow.

And i snapped a pic of the steering coupler reattached to the steering shaft and the rack. I cannot remember how this looked before i removed it. Does this look right?

so here is the rest of my updates for the weekend.

the harborfrieght transmission jack is awesome. i was able to easily drop this transmission all by my lonesome this afternoon.



i have absolutely no idea what the "material" is that you see in the transmission. it looks like wood shavings.



2 of the 3 transmission mount bolts are completely stripped out. so its time to order another time-sert kit. freaking expensive things, but i dont want to take a chance.

see ya old exedy stage 1!



and now i know why it was engaging weird when i drove it home after i bought it. there were a couple pieces like this hanging out under the pressure plate.



hola type r flywheel!



it looks like the pieces that were going rouge in the transmission made contact a few times. i hope i can get this resurfaced.



any guesses as to what the heck this stuff is? it seriously feels like wood shavings, or maybe a wasp's nest. weird. i'm at a loss...



edit: i forgot to mention i fought with that exhaust stud again. i put a flanged nut onto that awful exhaust manifold stud. i tacked it on place, and i broke it off more.... ugh. so i tried again with some vice grips and nothing. nadda. i really dont wanna have to drill this thing out, because there is no room for a drill here. the radiator is and other items are right in the way. getting frustrated with that thing.

That stuff may be mold maybe?

As for that exhaust stud, i'd just recommend pulling out the radiator and fans, because no matter what you do or how you fix it, that extra space will come in handy...

Maybe mold. Maybe old stop-leak.

As for that broken stud, if you have a friend with a TIG, they may be able to help you out. Otherwise, safest bet is to pull then head and take it to a shop.

Oh, and in all my years of using Time Serts, I've never considered them expensive. The job they do is amazingly good, and worth every damn penny IMO.

true, i may as well just remove the radiator at this point, i drained it to replace the hoses.

i should have worded the expensive part differently. they are expensive in comparison to heli coils, but the work a heck of a lot better.

Ha! Victory! I'm so stupid sometimes, i don't know why i didn't try this earlier. I'm pretty sure i mentioned this before, but i highly suggest everyone get a set of these if you have rounded rusted hardware to deal with like i have.

A must have in the tool box. I've had to use my set quite a few times.

I was going back through my pics last night and started looking at this one pic, tell me if i'm crazy. Could this, residue or whatever it is, be at least partially caused from a leak from this plug i have circled? i would assume it would be a coolant leak and not an oil leak, but i could be wrong

should i just remove this plug and put some sealant or whatever on the threads and re-torque it back in the block to spec?

alright, setting my goals for this weekend's work. have a little road trip saturday, so saturday is kinda meh for getting work done on the car.

need to clean up the mess in the above picture, get the flywheel to the machine shop to see if it can be cleaned up, drain the oil so i can install the ITR oil cooler, change the axle seals in the tranny, and start work on the water pump/timing belt/lma install. if i can get pretty through that list i'll be happy. if i can get further, i'll do the rear main and the oil pan gasket too.

I got a lot accomplished this weekend. the machine shop was closed so i was unable to drop off the flywheel, i got most of the mess cleaned up in the tranny, and i am def missing a box of parts somewhere in my house lol. i could not locate my axle seals anywhere. i know i bought them, just have to track them down.

so here is what i did get done:
ITR cooler = in!


i'm a little worried about this top hose, does it look like it is kinked too much? i'd much rather address this now and avoid a possible leak when the car is all put back together.


got the evap canister all hooked back up to the appropriate fuel lines


next, the LMAs. Thank God there are DIY's and how-to's for this already created by other people


a little extra factor of safety


sharpied a line on the distributor to help line it all back up. not shown, i did the same thing with the t belt and the cam gears.







science of speed replacements


i got the old ones out and the new ones in before i ran out of time. just need to mostly reassemble, then tackle the t-belt replacement and water pump replacement along with some other seals.

organization is key!!!


i started soaking some bolts in that evaporust...man is that stuff nice! it works real well. and my last pic, i obtained another part:


looking forward to getting some real work done this week and upcoming weekend. just need to find my missing bag o parts.....

labor of love in here. Keep up the good resto! And yes that is a coolant passage, so resealing it is not a bad idea.

what does something like this typically get sealed with? i'm sure it is sealed with something from the factory. like teflon tape on the threads or just some hondabond maybe?
