Hey guys I am having a bit of a problem with my tranny. I have a 92 cx and I put a jdm d15b in it about a year ago and left the cx tranny in b/c I didn't figure the ratios were going to be as bad as they are. Anyway, I am currently looking for either some different gears for mine so I can use my case or just to buy an ex/si tranny. My question is that right now when I put it in nuetral and let the clutch out I hear a rotating grinding type noise. When I push the clutch pedal in, the noise goes away. Is this the ISB? If so I saw the post about replacing it (if i decide to rebuild this tranny with diff. gears). thanks.

I had that noise in one of my hondas. Come to find out it was the pilot bearing getting ready to seize up. But both need to be replaced when changing a clutch and or tranny.

I have had that noise before. I dropped the transmission, replaced the throw out bearing, and guess what? problem NOT fixed.

I think mrnicolas knows the answer. Going to pick up a transmission for my fiancee's 97 tomorrow because of the same problem.



EDIT: 2 seconds too late. he is quick like ninja

The weird part is that I put a new clutch with a new pilot and throwout bearing in it when i did the swap and that was in April of '06. Either way that tranny is way too long so I am going to get an ex/si. This is one of those times where I wish I lived in SoCal though b/c no one around here (alabama that is) has one. I wonder if those guys from Hmotorsonline have one of the jdm ones with the LSD.

yes hmotors has a lsd trans... it is the d15b lsd trans goes for around 450... they also have the dohc zc lsd.. but you gotta have a spot for the halfshaft and make custom axles (waste of time imho)

just go for the d15b lsd:TU: its the same gearing as the 92-95 si hatch trans.. same 1-4 as the ex but with the .750 5th

Doesn't the jdm d15b unit require different axles?
nope.. single cam tranny takes single cam axles.. now if u got the dohc zc trans.. u need to make custom axles

Ok, well that settles that then...I'll give HM a call and see what I can do, although I do feel weird buying a transmission that cost the same as my engine, haha. oh well.

If you're having problems finding a trans, Call Jim at Motorvations. You are in birmingham right?

Yes, I actually talked to Jim a while back when I first did the swap b/c i was having trouble. (come to find out it was a faulty ignitor) I didn't think to call him, thanks.
