    Or beat the hell out of the fucknut who sold it to me? I guess those are my options. From my post in the Prelude/Accord forum:



    tell me what you think or if it's ever been done.

    Baker,
    If your block can't be resleeved and the crank is still good. I will buy your crank.

    What pictures are you guys talking about? (I was sick of all the abuse :bash: )

    By the way Baker, it's Warhol, not "Worhall", and he was a painter and filmmaker, not a photographer. Also, I'm not gay and don't wear a blonde wig (just ask my wife and kids). This one is for you, Baker:

    :lol:

    Anyway, back to the subject, I found a Darton-sleeved H23A short block with stock rotating assembly for $500 at a local import/speed shop. I've dealt with the guys before and bought a B16A from them last year. Any opinions on Darton sleeves?

    And no2psi, if you're interested in the crank, PM or email me.

    And Darton sleeves are pretty good stuff, from what I hear.

    the sleeves are fine, but who installed them? its the installation that fucks them up, as they don't do it for you. so it really depends on the machine shop

    B) I just bought a 92 Prelude and it needs engine work. The kid I bought it from said that it was blowing smoke after he rebuilt the bottomend and the head and then it clunked and then died. And by the way he said he had GUDE cams but he didnt change the valve springs, and then sold them and still didnt change the valvesprings. What i want to know is how oil got in the distributor. The spark plugs obviously fowled out, but its funny, its kinda dry black, kinda like carbon. I think its in the head, maybe a valve seal, or one of the spark plugs werent firing. Any opinions?


    thanks

    I seriously doubt that the problem is in the head if he described a "clunk." I would, however, remove the head and inspect for any colatteral damage.
    Your answer should lie just above the the oil pan. The guy I bought mine from told me it had a bad knock, and I didn't have to look far to find out why...
