Donor Engine Coming Together!

After ripping apart the 1998 Civic HX Donor car, I’ve managed to pull the following parts out of it for the 4 Door car.

  • D15Y5 Engine
  • Transmission
  • Axles
  • Shift Linkage
  • ECU
  • Engine Wiring Harness (likely not going to getting used)
  • Headlights
  • Hood
  • Brake Caliper
  • Center Console
  • Interior Pieces

With the engine out of the car, I’ve decided to replace just about any component that could leak, or fail, or would be easier to do with the engine out.

Once I got the engine out, I noticed an oil leak from the rear main seal.

From there I decided to do the following:

  • Timing Belt Kit
  • Water pump
  • Thermostat
  • Rear Main Seal
  • Oil Pan Gasket
  • Valve cover gasket
  • Valve adjustment
  • Clutch Kit
  • Flywheel
  • Spark Plugs
  • Radiator hoses
  • Heater Hoses
  • Bypass hose
  • Fuel Filter
  • Battery
  • Starter
  • Poly Shifter Bushings
  • Radiator
