Thumbs up Z6 Block Clearances Spec. Chart

Below is a list I compiled of all the clearance specifications for the D16Z6 Block, it is taken from the 1995 Civic Helm's Factory Service Manual, I decided to make a nice chart for quick reference when doing my engine build, and so I dont fill the pages of my nice new service manual with grease and dirt like I did my Chilton's. I had to split it up into two posts because it exceedes 10,000 characters.

If anyone would like a copy of the actual MS word (.doc) file send me an email and I will send it to you, I tried to attach it to this post but the file size was too large. The actual file looks better. If you need any other info from the book email me. If you wanna buy your own go to www.helmsinc.com , thats the website that the service tech at my local Honda dealership directed me to. The book is the best I have ever seen, walks all over a Chiltons.
