    well, I went to my last resort of getting the red hatch running before the end of christmas. I put the obd1 civic dizzy on it figured out where it had to be positioned and tied the bitch down. It started, runs a little rough but I met my goal of getting it running on christmas. I will have that little fucker moving today too I don't care if i have to push it.

    I'm real happy and I won the lottery, a whole 3 extra bucks.

    finally got the vacuum lines all sorted out, now idles at 1500 (cold) or so but has a lope to it, a real annoying lope especially since there is no exhaust. Revs freely to 6.8k. A little oil burning smoke but I have that sorted out already and isn't my main concern.

    After I get the new cat I can put the exhaust on and play a little more to get everything sorted out, it needs a new o2 sensor so that needs to be addressed.

    I'm having some problems with the DS axle. That shit will not go into the hub, I've slammed that shit, greased that shit, kicked it, punched it, tried everything...it doesn't want to go in. That's really the last thing that needs to be done before I can test drive it a little cause i hate my neighbors and will purposely drive it open exhaust, im still waiting for the dizzy but thee civic distributor should get it around the block.

    What to do about the axle, any advice on this?

    Its likely that the hub splines are damaged. That would cause the axle not to go in. If it fits in the tranny, than you know you at least have the right axle. B18 axles go into the civic hub so my bets are on the hub. ;)

    the old axle fit fine, and i think i even put the new one in before I put it in the intermediate shaft.

    It's possible that the hub's spline could be damaged or i could have just gotten a fucked up axle who knows.

    I'm gonna pull it out tomorrow and see if I can get it in the hub first. If I can't I'll get a new axle, if it still doesn't work then I'll get another hub.

    i never tested the axle. I pulled it out and tested it it, the huib end is way to big, there's no way it could ever fit. Someone at the manufacturing plant fucked up.

    Now, I'm gonna go back to NAPA and theyre gonna make me buy a new one because they gave me a fucked up axle, I'm not going to be happy but I wanna drive this shit NOW.

    no, they wont change it, they're assholes and now won't accept checks.

    If I bolt it on timing will be off way to much to even start. I ordered a new dizzy, just waiting for it.

    they do have the core charge, they gave me a shitty axle. They won't take it back, only going to accept it as a core.

    I've never had so much trouble locating an axle, I went to like 4 places today and they were all out or special order. I don't remember this much hassle last time.

    I went to Advanced to get some Hex Nut Header Bolts... they dont care them in Metric the only way to get em was to special order them. They were only $10 for them to order it I have to order at least $150 worth of merchandice. How dumb?
