MarkyXJr Posted April 22, 2010 Share Posted April 22, 2010 Alright to start this off i just want to say that i am new the the forum scene so dont hate on me to much please ^.^ Alright a couple of weeks ago i was driving down the road and all of a sudden my 94 5speed del sol si started to idle really rough and make a weird clinking noise. At first i thought it was the timing so i got it home checked the timing and it was fine, i started to rip the motor down and i found out i snapped a connecting rod in the 4th cylinder and chewed up the piston. I took the oil pan off today and saw that there are sum huge gouges in the crank shaft, i know crank shafts aren't the cheapest, witch brings me to starting this thread. Im trying to figure out what would be the most practical and affordable thing to do. I could buy new rods pistons and a crank and just fix the current D16z6. Or i have a friend that has a 90 accord with a H22A1 in it that would sell it to me for 400$ witch as i understand would for 400$ i would get motor mounts, motor, wiring harness, axles, pretty much i could drop it right into the del sol, correct? But that brings up my next issue, the H22A1 is automatic and i would like to do a auto to manual swap if i was to put it into the del sol. Since my del sol was already a 5speed what would i need to swap it to manual other then a manual tranny and probably a new clutch. I dont know if i explained my situation as well as i wished too, but any feed back would be very helpfull. Thanks ahead of time! =) Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
