I missed something... you have a YouTube channel for this restoration?

You haven't missed anything. I never mentioned it and this will be the first Civic video I post. It's scheduled for Monday at 130p EST (1030a PST). Here is the link, it should work after Monday at 130p. Youtube lists the video as private so it should just not work until tomorrow. Lets find out



I am new to video making, so I could use feedback. I think some of the shots could have been better and a couple parts of the voiceover. The installation at the end probably should have used a different camera position as well. The hood made it difficult, but I think if I used a smaller tripod I could have put it on the engine or radiator.

I did watch, and I thought the video was good. Great result and enough detail to show someone else how to repeat your results.

I accidentally edited my last post in this thread rather than writing a new one. Doh! I was wondering why it looked like the text from my previous post was in my new message! DOH!

So I pulled the valve cover off the fiat about a week ago. What I saw was concerning and I realized I never checked the engine in the civic.

For comparison, my 73 Fiat 124 sedan:


And the civic:


Looks good. Then I noticed on the front of the engine by the oil dipstick:


One of the valve lash adjusters. You can see the missing spot on the right side 4th valve away from the front. The screw piece looks fine. The nut is slightly smashed, but relatively unharmed. I figured I'd go ahead and pull the upper timing cover for a look since you have to take the valve cover off first anyway. One of the bolts was loose and the cover ear partially broken. The other is stuck. When I go to loosen it the socket (six point) starts to cam out (like a stripped screw) and won't keep a grip. I tried vice grips, but its pretty cramped and I can't get any except the smallest to fit and still had no luck. A friend has a set of rounded head sockets I am going to try and worst case is I either weld a wrench to the bolt head to break it loose or I try to cut the head off to salvage the cover and attempt to remove the exposed stud. Any other ideas?




Also if anyone wants to help me look for a replacement timing cover this is the only part number I could find for it. TIA.

It is amazing how similar the valve cover, the lifters, and the lash adjusting nuts all are to a late-90s Civic. My thought about your stuck bolt on the timing cover is that you might want to cut through the timing cover right around that Bolt. Obviously you'll be damaging the timing cover and doing that, but I think you're going to do a lot more damage to that plastic cover with a welding torch. Cutting the cover at the bolt at least gives you the chance to repairit later with adhesives. Inmy experience, Honda's plastic cover breaks easily too. It could crack while youtry to extract the bolt with a wrench.
