Also replaced a fair few of the bolts on the engine with new yellow zinc plated bolts. Plan replace more before the engine goes in as some of the larger ones I ordered have the wrong thread pitch. But most of the smaller ones replaced, very happy with how they look.

After refitting the skunk2 intake manifold I fitted the j's racing blue rocker cover with new genuine honda seals and fasteners etc. Also put some plugs in it and fitted the Spoon Sports plug cover. Starting to look the part now I think!

Not much left to do now until the flywheel, clutch and gearbox can go on then into the car. Need to source a few parts first though, power steering pump bracket, alternator as the one the came with the engine has seen better days and a gearbox mounting bracket that fixes to the engine mount on the chassis leg. If anyone on here has any of these let me know!!
