So if we're to assume compression is fine and the flow of air is fine, seems like a simple "misfire" to diagnose.
When the symptom occurs, what's not firing? No spark or no Fuel? It's always the #2? You can put a test light on the plug wire, and diagnose spark there....could be bad wire or...
So, I THOUGHT I was all prepared to dive in and tackle the center support bushing & bearing. It wasn't until my bushing arrived that I learned this is a bit different than a 240. The bushing was just a donut that slipped on and off, on the 240. This was going to require the bearing...
I wanted to update you, ZVOLV, as you asked me to document the process with photos. I got carried away in the process and failed at photos.
After my first failed attempt, my second bout was with a pre-assembled bearing/bushing. I didn't riddle with heat/freezing, to assist. Instead, a light...
I swapped over a complete 940/960 headlight/grill and front bumper setup to my otherwise stock 740, so they’ll interchange.
Or are you referring to the early 740 fronts with sealed beam headlights and the coffin style hood/grill?
I didn't need to replace my evaporator, so I don't KNOW first hand, but I'd bet it will interchange. If you still have an evaporator in there that's still good, flush it and reuse it with the new components.
93 is the big change-over year, as I've learned. 92 got a upgrade, but 93 introduced the R134a system, and I believe a lot of the components are higher capacity.
The fittings at the condenser are a lot more user friendly than the earlier types.
Well worth finding some of the 93+ components...
Wow this is a $hit ass job. 3-jaw puller is no fun for removing the awkward bushing/bearing. New bearing wasn't easy to seat in new bushing, and i screwed up the bearing upon installing it to DS...total do over and waste of money.
I may go that ebay, assembled unit route
Called King....they directed me to part number MB5259-XPC which is a tri-metal option for Honda B-Series.
They're supposed to be 0.04" longer and 0.0004" thicker. And I'd still need to find a thrust bearing that'll fit...I don't have the dimensions for that.
Turbo, both times.
Getting the hardware from subframe to aluminum mount bracket is a patient process. long 3/8" extension and u-joint gets in there pretty good. Upper nut is ez-pz. Impact the mount off lower bracket, after it's out.
Install is reverse of removal. You've got this!
Bumping this as I ran into an unexpected riddle.
The bearings arrived, however the mains were bi-metal alu-glide bearings, not TRI-METAL. I called ACL, and their tech department confirmed the error on their facts sheet, and also indicated that there's no major brand that's currently producing...
Thanks for sharing. I didn’t quite know the potential cons.
That said, for the amount of cannonball style driving it’ll see, i think it’s worth it. I’m ocd on the servicing side, so that may not be too concerning
