my body shop found a set of chippendale male dancer playing cards when doing my quarter panels. i eventually ran across the woman who had owned the car, she said they were not hers, but probably her sisters who had the car after her.
plug with hydraulic cement,home depot has it, that is good old cast iron pipe, can last a long time but tends to be brittle over time. sleeve with pvc, or maybe see if they make any pipe liners like they use on city sewer systems. but like everybody said it is a florr drain, not your toliet.
thanks for that advice i am hoping to confirm n the next day or so. found a shop that specializes in hondas. they seem to think along the same lines but wont know till he gets into it. i think one shop said around 16 hours labor to replace and 12 to 16 to re ring.
yes trying to get my cost options, used engine 1200 plus tax/shipping etc. labor to install? head rebuild? hard to get cost estimates and since i am not familar at all with fwd set ups and not set up to do any major repairs.having trouble finding info on it too. dealerwas quoting 130 an hour labor.
yes i am thinking of that. but seeing the cost of used engines $$$ and time is a issue. i dont know if it is worth it try for a tear down just to get down the road and unload it or if its worth the cost of a used engine. or take a loss now.
