Supposedly the whole reason the car sat for two years is because the timing belt snapped. We shall see.
Getting all my parts together. Timing belt, repair ma... Show morenual, crankshaft seal, camshaft seals, new timing belt tensioner, new water pump and sealer, needed a new floor jack anyway...
Valve cover off and out of the way.
Wait, that doesn't look snapped to me. Actually it looks fantastic!
So what could have been sooo terrible to make someone throw away a Prelude? Aha! Frayed wires at the EACV! (electronic air control valve) This is just after I cut it the rest of the way off.
Throw in some ghetto-vation (ghetto-rigging and inovation, like this word) and voila!
About a pound of rust burst out of the exhaust once it started. Whatever... Show Less
