Good point, he may have been making fun of you! I wonder which of us is truly more boring and uninteresting!

I'll take the poke... I've been getting poked at by my FIL since I blocked the grille on the van... (Your transmission will overheat)

Was thinking about EV/Diesel, actually.

EV for around town, Diesel for anyplace else. I figure a decent EV setup will get me about 20 miles of range, which is good enough to get me around town reliably... the diesel/5 speed end will get me anywhere else I need to go, for ~90cents per gallon or less.

Sorry for the hijack -

I've got the 00-06 Insight factory service manual right here. And an 00 Insight without plates right over there.

All it says is the axle nut is M22x1.5, and the shafts are 483mm and 763mm +/- 2mm long, measured from the inboard side of the hub to the tranny.

Sweet, will look in the crx manual for the corresponding info now.

Sure you don't want me to take that insight off your hands?

483 and 776.5 +/- 2mm for the crx axles.

Think the axle nut might be 22x1.6

So, length is only 1cm off on one side, if the spline count is the same or the hubs can be swapped, what do people think about using the insight axles (I could position the engine to split the difference so it's only 5mm different on each side)?

Axle nut should be M22-1.5... there is never anything but a 0 or 5 as the last number, that I know of. In fact, I think most Honda Smalls share the same axle nut.

5mm on each side won't hurt anything... it's only 1/4", which is within the realm of "engine slop". In fact, 1/4 inch deviation can be had under lateral load of the suspension... or by offsetting the mounts slightly while installing the engine.

Use harder mounts, put in a urethane bushing kit from Energy (only $130 or so). If you're going to use D-series rubber mounts in the car, I've got some 70D poly inserts for you, once I dig them out again, which will approximate solid mounts.

You're smart, I think the page I was reading just had blurry printing. :P I'm too tired to sort that out by myself.

I want planning on just filling up some mounts with solid urethane for cheap since I don't feel like paying much.

Any idea how to find out if the spline count is the same/they'll fit without physically doing it? I've tried to compare hub part numbers, but can't find the crx hub on a parts site.

I'll look around tonite, and see if I can find any info... sometimes, mfr's list spline counts on rebuilt axles.
