Block Preparation Part 2 - 1gina2g Timing Side
RRE Method: http://www.roadraceengineering.com/2g6boltmotorinstall.htm
Technically, I'm doing the Magnus method, but my wiring will be very
All 1g cars use the same water pump, and naturally they use the same water
pump bolts as well. I use the 1g tensioner arm because it clears the water
pump without any grinding of either one of those parts.

1g Timing Tensioner Arm
This 2g timing mount assembly includes a tensioner arm, washer, pivot bolt,
idler pulley and bolt.. You won't need the included tensioner arm with my
method. It doesn't come with the studs on the top, so you'd need to buy a
pair of those.

Depending on whether you're installing a 1g 6-bolt or a 1g 7-bolt engine
block in your 2g chassis, you're going to need the front case and hydraulic
tensioner that matches the block you're using.
Front Case Assemblies

MD175762 (6-bolt helical cut gears)
MD327450 (7-bolt helical for 1g block)

MD190987 x2 7-bolt
You can modify a 2g lower timing cover to make it fit, but it won't line up
around the bottom of the front case. That's why I use the 1g timing cover,
and modify it to fit the 2g middle cover.
Since you need metal covers against the block to have something to bolt the
plastic parts to, let's start with those. The rear metal cover that bolts
to the head is exactly the same part for both 1g and 2g cars. With my
method, you need to use the 2g front metal cover in order to line up with
the 2g middle plastic cover. So all of the plates that bolt to my swap are
from a 2g.

2g Timing Middle Cover, Front (metal)
2g Timing Lower Cover, Rear (metal)
For the plastic part of the covers, my method dictates that you use the 1g
lower timing cover assembly. This lines up all of the bolt holes and makes
it fit around the bottom of the front case where the oil pan is. If you
modify the lower cover to fit with the middle 2g cover, you won't need to
trim anything else.
The upper timing cover you need may depend on which head and valve cover

Upper Timing Cover WITH Rubber Gaskets
1g - MD141457 6-bolt head
1g - MD188127 7-bolt head
2g - MD198031
This is a good place to transition into the rubber parts because the rubber
pieces are very different for the 1g and 2g upper timing covers. If you
don't want a rattling, buzzing, noisy valve cover sounding off with every
vibration from your car, you should replace all of the rubber. It dry rots
and turns hard. If you bought a complete 1g engine gasket set and you have
both timing covers already, then you should have the 1g portion of these
rubber gaskets included in your gasket set.
If you've already got both generations of the timing covers like I do, and
no good rubber gaskets, then order all of these parts and stop the rattles.
However, if you bought any of the plastic timing cover parts new from the
dealer, then those plastic parts come with the rubber gaskets included.
You can eliminate them from your order.
* If you bought a complete 1g plastic lower
timing cover, you don't need the 1g gaskets.
Upper Timing Cover Gaskets by themselves...
1g - MD031235 & MD122058 6-bolt head
1g - MD188123 & MD188124 7-bolt head

Now for the last part. Fasteners. These are all of the upper, middle and
lower timing cover bolts whether they bolt down metal or plastic parts.
I've included their lengths and diameters so you can identify them.

Part 2: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iLdgivYwUiQ
I've been asked about doing a video on this process since my first Honda
valve adjustment videos came out almost 2 years ago. I was happy when this
2004 Acura TL 6 speed came in not just because it allowed me the
opportunity to make this video but also because I think these cars are a
lot of tun to drive. This is truly a step by step account of the valve
adjustment procedure for the J Series engine. Remember it takes time to
get the 'feel' for valve adjustments and it's better to go too loose than
Here are links to the videos I mentioned in the movie that might also be
helpful if you're servicing one of these J Series engines.
