  2. I'm not questioning that you've noticed a difference, in the performance, but there could be a couple of reasons, which may not be related to the timing chain at all. 1. Did you ensure the little location pin between the back of the camshaft sproket & the front of the camshaft was reinstated, when you fitted the sproket to the camshaft ? The crankshaft sproket has a giant keyway, that locates crankshaft pulley & the timing chain sprocket. The camshaft sprocket does not have a key, but a pin, that it relys on totally to lock the camshaft & chain, in the correct position. There have been those on here, that have had this pin shear, with dramatic results. 2. Did you replace the tensioner at the same time, as I assume you had a kit with it in ? 3. It could be that with the sloppy old chain, & a tensioner not working well; that the timing was out enough to effect the performance slightly, as the cam shaft drives both valves & the distrubutor; & hence has a slight effect on the ignition timing. It could be that you have to adjust the ignition timing slightly, in both directions, in increments, & see whether it makes any difference. Have you got a timing light ? That could throw up the fault, as it will indicate, whether the automatic advance/retard mechanism is working OK. Have you got a standard points type distributor ? Maybe it is time to give that an overhaul ? Let's know what you find. Trust this assists. Cheers Banjo

  3. If your water pump is in good condition and the hose do not deform while running, then it's a 90% chance that you have air in the system. Jack the front of the car up while filling the radiator. Run the engine for a short time, cool down, and re-fill. It will probably take about 3 times to get all the air out of the system. I have a Civic rad for my 4AGE and it actually runs on the cool side.

  4. Indeed it was a long term proyect, but ever since I rented the garage, the work took of and it got a lot of momentum and its getting closer and closer to the finish. Thanks a lot for the kind words, and as you say I have a lot of updates to post Well at least after a while you'll have a pool and a garage to have fun with hahaha, so the wait it's worthy Now I have some short posts, but I tried to split the photos into diferent sections of the car while I was fixing them And we start with the rear end of the passenger side. First of all let's cut all the rotten metal, and we end up with something like this And then we have to make all this metal from scratch Little by little, with a hammer and patience each of the parts for this puzzle come to life The process is simple and the same for every part, take some measurements, find a piece of metal with that size, cut, hammer and bend to shape, and fit and refit and test fit until the shape is right. When you are happy with the fitment, and also checked with all the other parts in the vicinity, get the metal glue gun, and zapp all the parts together, then a little weld through primer and on to the next piece Test and check and weld And with that we have all the corner looking like new Onto the next part
