well today i finally got the CRX running since i got it back from when it was stolen. the fucker theives stole my distributor (didnt unplug it, just cut the plugs right off the harness..fuckers), spark plugs wires, power cable, and (+) battery terminal (god knows why). so when i got it back i had no way of starting it, and i feared the worst and that the engine was fucked in some way. i spend 2 months getting the right distributor, getting plug wires and all the other shit i needed, took the longest to get the right distributor, GSR distributors are suprisingly hard to find for a good price. so last week i spent 3 hours wiring up the distributor plugs in the freezing cold. i was working alone and reading from the helms and making sure i was matching the colors right and getting the everything to the right spot on the ecu, did i mention it was like 10 degrees out? and now today i got the power hooked back up. this wasnt such an easy task either. the whole on the end of my starter cable was not large enough to fit over the bolt on the starter. i spent a good half hour enlarging it with a round file. then i had to find the right nut to fit the starter. helms didnt have the thread pattern so i had to try like 987432574985 sizes jus by looking at it. i had 1 that fit and it caught my eye by accident, guess that's how that goes though. then i had to get power back to the fuse box. naturally the asshat thieves just yanked the wire right out so the terminal was all mangled and i had to fidgit with that for another 30 minutes. after i got everything hooked to the battery, it was the moment of truth. i had to put the key in the cylinder and attempt to start it and see if i did everything right. i sat in the drivers seat expecting the worst. i even almost forgot to push in the clutch cause ive been driving an auto teg for the past 2 months . so i put in the key, press the clutch, and turn the key expecting nothing to happen, or for it to sound fucked. it cranked for about 5 seconds before firing up. i was so relieved. the worst is over. the engine sounded jus as it did 2 months ago. but thats with a bad idle which unfortunately wasnt stolen as well, lol. other things that were stolen are: wheels, rear hatch, stereo, intake, my full WW kit excet the front which they were unable to get off, corner lights, taillights, bumperlights, and all the above mentioned engine parts. so now the restoration begins. i have many parts collected already like the full rear hatch, and rear bumper, along with everything needed to fix my idle (fast idle valve) and some go fast parts waiting for installation as well. but i still need many parts before it will be back on the road. hopefully i can have it on the road by the summer. the CRX lives!! project: theft rebuild is officially underway im happy that is all.
