    84 gl hardtop ea81, 92 Honda accord.
  1. Just replaced one on a 93 Subaru legacy with a sohc ej22. It idles higher than it did. Anyone know how do I adjust it using a multimeter?

    ej22 swap

    I tried picking that transmission up the other day and it turns out since I'm 17 they won't let me in the yard. I've been looking around for a fwd impreza transmission but still no luck.

    ej22 swap

    I picked up an ej22 for $125 and I'm pretty set on it. Got a timing belt kit on it rear seal and it has new head gaskets. I will start looking for a fwd impreza transmission. Pulled a fuel pump off a loyale. Got the intake with a maf. "Front ea crossmember drill/grinder to fit with any ej centerpiece with flat bar at the rear. Works" Ok. So will the ea81 axles fit in the fwd ej22 transmission (off an early impreza)?

    ej22 swap

    I have a 5 speed manual front wheel drive ea81 that I am wanting to fit an ej22 into. Here are the options I am looking at: FWD Impreza transmission: I read that the impreza ej22 fwd transmissions are 23 spline and so are the hubs of the ea81 cars. I also read that to use an ej22 transmission, I could use the front and rear crossmember pieces out of an xt6 and the center one out of a wrx. If so, are they a direct bolt in? And what year wrx would I be looking at? And is all of this possible? Is there any way I could fabricate some sort of crossmember or modify the original one to fit an ej transmission with just a drill and an angle grinder? Reusing my stock transmission: With these parts, would they mate up together? -ea81 clutch -Flywheel redrilled to the ej pattern -xt6 pressure plate. (I don't know if I have to get another throwout bearing or if I can reuse the one that's in there). -Adapter plate since the shaft of the ea transmission is longer than the ej transmission. Ea82 transmission: Readily available and really cheap. From what I understand they are pretty similar to the ea81 transmissions too, and I can pick one up with significantly lower miles than my current one for pretty cheap so I'd be willing to do it if it's not too complicated. The thing is that my stock transmission has 250000 miles on it, so I was planning on replacing it anyways and I'd have to pay $400 for a redrilled flywheel and adapter plate from sjr since I don't have any good machining tools. I was thinking that for that price I could just get a fwd ej transmission, am I right?
  7. It's a 1984. The plastic shroud is already removed. I haven't checked my fuses yet, that was stupid of me.
  8. I finally got my car running, and took it for a drive. Here's what my problem is: * My car idles really low, and it will die unless I give it gas. * Sometimes, when I press the gas pedal, it will stick. * It backfires at higher rpms when I'm cruising. * The ECS light is on. I've replaced the spark plug wires and both the main and secondary fuel filters. What should I check next?
  9. So my turn signals aren't working. They don't even click. I tried replacing the 3 prong flasher relay, but they still don't work. The turn signal switch is kind of hanging down from the steering column. Any suggestions? Which wires should I be looking at?

    Miata Rear Shocks.

    Followed trevors advice. Learned about how the suspension works and figured out how to lower the back. On either side there's 12mm bolts. They hold the trailing arms and the torsion bars to The frame. There are two torsion bars and a tube that goes around them (I mistook the tube for the torsion bar). Theres this thing splined on both sides inside in the middle of the metal tube that the torsion bars slide into. Anyways I took out those 12mms and three 17mms on either side that held the trailing arms to the lcas, and I pulled the whole torsion bar assemblies on either side out of the tube and notched them towards the sky. It lowered my car a few inches so its super flush now. Now I just gotta get some fatter tires.

    My car doesn't have the adjusting bolt on the torsion bar.

    FWD EA81 5 lug conversion in rear.

    And if I were to go the xt6 route, how would I run the brake lines from the new rear caliper? And should I get parts off a fwd or awd xt6 or are they the same?

    FWD EA81 5 lug conversion in rear.

    I don't have a lot of tools. I was considering a 6 lug swap though. Should I attempt it with a regular drill rather than a drill press? I could use a 6 lug wheel as a template and they're pretty cheap on craigslist.

    Thanks everyone. And I do have that awkward positive camber in the front.

    clutch cable replacement

    There's a clevis pin that goes through the pedal and the end of the cable. The pin won't come out without sliding the pedal away from the pedal shaft. There is a locking ring on the end of the shaft that you need to pry off with some decent pliers to slide the pedal. The locking ring on the end of the pedal shaft looks like a washer, but it's not. This is for an ea81 by the way.
