As much as I wanted to use that as my primary shift knob, i had it in the civic for a while but the sun absolutely tore it up... it has a billion tiny hairline cracks internal to the handle plastic. One good bang shift and she'd shatter into oblivion.

The helicoils because M12x1.25 is rare locally, I only have M12x1.5 and 1.75 flavors, and I need to repair the threaded mounting holes in the transmission mount.

Bearings came back from WPC. The crankshaft steel facing surface of the bearings look wild, it completely transformed the appearance of the metal.

If anyone knows what the ACL race series bearings look like when they come out of the package, its like a dark grey/black tarnished looking surface. The WPC treatment essentially made that disappear:

I'm looking forward to getting these out of the shrink wrap and down into the engine!

I'll likely head outside later and tinker a bit before bed, so more pics coming!

What did that service run? They are actually out in my neck of the woods and I've got a few canidates for it currently, some reason looming rescion has people drooling to get their toys done.
It was $4 per half shell, so 18 shells = $72, plus shipping there and back.

Here's their common parts list and pricing. Though if you have something uncommon you want done, you can call them and/or submit an inquiry via email, and they'll let you know how much it will be.

Here's a really cool article that justifies the service:

Will need to trim the stock windage tray a bit here to clear these 3 fasteners on the IJ crank scraper:

Also need to fit and clearance the teflon:

Crank scraper came with these additional shapes, took me a minute to figure out where they should go. They are designed to attach to the IJ scraper in order to section off the windage area between cylinders, preventing turbulent gas flow movement between different cylinders in the crankcase, to control the amount of windage inside the tray, and to minimize crankcase side pumping losses and overall turbulance. Pretty cool idea!

Also got a ton of BR swag from buying this ATI damper. Yes, ATI includes a sticker of their actual dampers as part of their decal pack that comes inside the box lol

Got the IJ crank scraper installed. This was like a 4 hour affair, for the curious.

Installing the 5 separators that came in a baggie, loctiting and snugging down the fasteners, installing and checking clearance, then installing the teflon blades, checking initial clearance and contact points with layout fluid, carving and shaping them, then checking clearance again, then loctiting and snugging down those fasteners... then modifying the stock windage tray to clear the IJ, yeah, it was a lot.

BUT, it is a very clever contraption, and will work amazing. It is absolutely purpose built for this, the craftsmanship towards the details tells all. Hard to explain what this means without seeing it in person, since getting a close look at all the hidden stuff you cant see or take a picture of when its installed is hard to describe lol.

Took the Type R oil pump apart to pack full of white lithium grease, and get ready for install. Didnt have any white lithium lol, need to do a parts store run. It will be installed to the block later tonight.

Installed the rear main seal holder and seal:

Also threw a straight edge across the D series head, yup its flat. Cant fit a .0015" feeler blade between gaps, and it always drags when pinched, so she can be reused.

Also started fitting the exhaust manifold 90° and T fittings to the flange. Did some measuring, found out how much and where to cut the fittings to make it butt up flush, and align with the flange reliefs. Will get the rest cut, then chamfered in order to weld a good root, then get tacked together tonight and get the backpurge jig ready to go.

Bad Guys oil pump finally taken apart, inspected, hot tanked, cleaned and relubed. She looks good aside from one piece of something that carved a single shallow groove in the housing. In either case, will put back together and pack with white lithium to get ready for reinstallation.

Oil pump also installed to B series and ready to go:

I wasnt expecting this, nowhere on the IJ website did it say I might need to mod the oil pickup to fit. Had to cut and narrow the leg, then put a window in it to get it to clear the IJ plate and the stock windage tray, since the whole assembly moved up about 1/16". Regardless, the IJ scraper is definitely no plug and play affair. You just need to be ready to adapt things where needed to get it all to fit.

Got D series Bad Guys pump reassembled and packed with lithium grease, ready to be reinstalled whenever I rebuild the D.

Some more custom odds and ends wrapped up on B series tonight. Had to build a bracket that held/put a little pressure aganst the aluminum plug covering the black box hole, it didnt come with one in the kit.
