    Ok check it before you hound dogs rip me apart I have read many fourms that say to keep it stock. IF I COULD I WOULD, but due to the limited amount of 1st gens in the pick a part and special order this special order that i dont have the time nor patience.

    With that said. I have a 79 5 speed. Due to excessive oil consumption (sliped main berring) and 2 ruined heads on cylinder 3 I have decided to remove the CVCC that is in it and put a D15b7 from a 95 civic OBD 1. My question to you guys is has anyone swaped a D series into a 79. :confused: Im not inturested in B series only D series.

    Welding's not the problem. Whoever worked on the car b4 i got it decided they would make the air conditioner switch the coolant switch as well. so I always have to have the air going to cool the engine down.

    If anyone knows the electrical on the car would help a ton and what harness i would need to make this work. I have a P72 ECU

    no,but that is a great concept cant wait till you get done and show some pics as the motor goes ive done alot of d series motor swaps and use the d15b7 harness and wire driverside into dash shouldnt have aproblem with axles becuz the axles should work in your 79 civic,idid a 81 civic with a d16y8 vtec and there basically the same procedure so good luck

    Truthfully, if you can't fix that problem yourself you'll never get a D series running in it. Its doable, but you really need to have a good amount of knowlege to tap into.

    Nope, axles dont work on firstgencivics but they do on secondgens. Youll need secondgen hubs,axles and an 88-91 tranny( because itrs the only d that was cable, the integra86-89 works too)Youll need a firstgen wagon caliperbrakets so you can attach 88-91 or newer calipers and rotor. Youll need to throw new fuellines to the tank and also a new pump.There are someother thinngs you need to take into consideration, again, check 1stgencivic( or 1stgenhonda also, its the same site) Itll be of great help ^_^ Keep us posted here:)

    Wow just realized, it was an accord,so I guess you wont need the caliper brakets and the hubpart will be a little different.
