  1. Past hour
  2. It’s a 24x36. So yes, plenty of room for 4 cars…. But I made the back half a hangout. And plus, I don’t need 4 toys. Having only 2 spaces keeps me from buying other cars. And it has an attic also where I keep totes of parts. So I can keep it pretty clean.
  3. Today
  4. I can tell from the pic it's nice and deep ... assuming a double deep? Mine is also double deep, but I have 3 cars inside and a "workshop" in what is essentially the other bay. I would really love to build a pole barn with a loft so all the parts can go into storage in vertical space and keep the garage "clean" more like yours, but I don't have the land to do it. We all have dreams I guess. For now I have to work with what I got and remind myself my first had a narrow single car garage that I couldn't open the drivers door all the way and now I have what I have.
  5. You have three fuel filters to check; one is in-tank at the bottom of the pickup tube, second is a small conical filter located in-line at the fuel pump, and the third is under the hood located on the fender wall. Jimmy
  6. Okay, thanks. All done. The car now has an MOT and road legal. Unfortunately, it broke down on ay back from MOT station. Seems the Car will retain no fuel pressure, coughing, spluttering and stalls as soon as you give it any gas. Petrol pump is also screaming. I'm assuming old gas has clogged the filter whist ts been in storage for 11 years. New filter on its way. Just hoping it's not the fuel pump as I don't fancy dropping the tank.
  7. https://starquestparts.net/undercarriage Steve has some.
  8. Yesterday
  9. I believe these are NLA but can parts be found to rebuild? Also, how to tell if you have Hydraulic or Gas damper type? Thanks
  10. Thanks for the pictures, these are great. On page 2-10 of the manual it shows the C clip I refer to above and officially called here Snap ring to be at the disc. On my car they are on the hub, clipped to the lugs as they exit, which is correct? Thanks
  11. I made the garage a spot for me and the boys to stay. And we spend most of our time in there rather than inside the house. I'm sure my wife enjoys the peace and quiet.
  12. Car looks great Prelude! I love the garage too. My garage is always a complete mess b/c I'm always building a motor, restoring a car, or something. Someday I'd love to just stop - clean everything up, and just have a clean, organized garage without parts all over the place.
  13. Sounds like you found the problem. Glad it was something simple!
  14. Last week
  15. It appears the rotor was rubbing against a clip for one of the pads; the only way for this to happen is if the rotor is not properly seated. If the rotors were held down with screws I could be sure. Also, one of the C clip for the lug was not on the lug, it was stuck against the hub. Anyway, I took it out for a while and no noise, I’ll keep checking since it didn’t do it every time, but more times than not.
  16. And here was a super cool photo someone took with the sun shining down the side of it.
  17. Went to Cars&Coffee this past Saturday. I always try and browse the FB page and see if I can find photos of my car, as there are always many people taking photos. I found this photo of me waiting in the line to pull in...
  18. Good point, I’ll have to take a closer look at the brakes. Figure bearings are inexpensive so I’d try process of elimination. Couldn’t think what else it could be. Thanks
  19. Sorry it took me a bit to respond. Here are the photos I found. I only have pictures of the assembly. Now that I found the photos, I can check the sizes on two of the bearing tools I used (the gold and the silver ones). Doesn't look like I snapped a photo of the oil seal installation which I used a larger one for. I'll get back to you on the sizes of those two though.
  20. I think this is the kit I have (or very similar). Not having to use a hammer is always a better way, in my opinion. https://a.co/d/2FswANO FYI your problem doesn't sound like a bearing to me. Something in the brakes making noise? I have had stuff get in the caliper before and cause all kinds of W T F moments.
  21. No need for a special tool. I use a long punch and hammer to drive them out. Be careful not to gouge the metal inside the hub. I use a seal and race driver set to install the new races and grease seal.
  22. Ah makes more sense….engine transversely mounted I assume.
  23. FWD vehicles using the G54B had a pulley running off the back of the camshaft.
  24. Earlier
  25. I was so excited about these as well. What a bummer. Thanks though for sharing on here for everyone so we all know to be wary.
  26. Link below from Amazon for reference, if appropriate; Would this work? I’m more interested in knowing the correct size for our bearings. Some sets are very small. I don’t want to spent too much on set containing many sizes as it won’t be used very often.
