Ok, so i have my motor from my 1991 4 door automatic integra LS and i would like to drop it into my 1993 2 door manual Integra LS. The motor is already out of the vehicle since i am parting it out (ad is here), and i figure i should replace a good variety of items without getting into the interior engine items before dropping it in. I have an idea on what to replace but would like some input especially from ppl who may have done the same or similar. I figure since the 93 is obd1 that i will have to use that motors distributor and should use the intake manifold and that exhaust system as well. Anything else I should use from that motor too?
As far as “fixing it up” a little i was planning on replacing the fallowing before dropping it in the '93:
- Timing Belt
- Timing Belt Tensioner (Maybe?)
- Alternator Belt
- A/C Belt (Since the A/C works)
- Power Steering Belt
- Water Pump
- Valve Cover Gasket & Tube Seals
- Cam Seal
- Distributor O-Ring
- Oil Pan & Gasket (Since drain plug hole is stripping and slowly leaks)
- Spark Plugs
- Injector O-Rings
- Thermostat & Gasket
- Coolant Hoses (Upper & Lower)
- Fan Switch
- Intake Manifold Gasket
- Exhaust Manifold Gasket
…and any other hoses and/or clamps which may NEED replacing.
Since i would be bolting up the manual trans from the '93 I figure might as well replace the clutch kit as well as both axle seals and replace the trans fluid too.
The '91 motor has had one owner except me and has been taken care of all it’s life. I know the previous owner personally and know it’s always had the oil change done around 3k and other maintenance has been done; this is why I don’t feel i really need to do internal engine work at least for right now, especially since i can’t really afford that kind of work. Is there anything else that I should consider replacing/looking over while the motor is out before dropping this one in?
Thank you in advance for any help and/or advice.
