Well since the weather has finally improved. I took the opportunity to work on 192. After the issue witht the burnt harness; I bought the front end harness from NateCrisman (Big thanks btw) to replace the one that i suspected of being destroyed. Just taking my time things went pretty smoothly. I also took the time to do a couple of other things I've been needing to do such as swap out the non functional cruise control for the N/A throttle cable,remove a/c condensor and lines, and begin getting everything ready to relocate the battery back to the front of the car.

A little history: the PO before me put a radiator out of a neon in the car to make room for the holset he had in it. Well this radiator was not properly mounted by any means and was actually laying against the radiator support. One of the fans had been rigged to run when the ignition was in the on postion. Mind you nothing i've found so far had been done correctly or safely.

As I pulled the harness from the front of the car where it runs underneath the radiator support I saw this. The culprit behind why I had to replace the entire lighting and wiper assembly on the column and my headlights remained on at all times with the switch unplugged and fuses/relays removed .


As it stands right now I will be replacing the radiator. I have many options open to me and can not decide which way to go. The civic and AFCO radiator setup sounds nice for the space it gives. But I think a stock radiator would be nice too.

Thats what i'm leaning towards as far as the radiators go. Yeah harness issues suck.

Well 90% of the parts have made it. Just waiting on the gasket kit right now. Dropped the head parts off at the machine shop. Found it'll be about $30 less than quoted.

well first i need to thank Curtis for all his advice and help! After talking with him since he was the one that made the brackets for the radiator. I moved some parts around and now the radiator sits about two inches forward, giving me even more room in the bay. I got the SPAL fan mounted with some custom brackets(after $60 worth of tools and parts). now to go browse the for sale ads as i'm in need of new positive and negative cables as mine were hacked to shit.

I'm a bit confused at what I'm looking at here.

A) Why is the engine bay side of the radiator covered with a piece of sheet metal? Is that to protect it when you are working in the engine bay?

B) Are the pusher fans as far away from the radiator as I think they are? It looks like they are almost 2" away from the actual radiator. Are you going to put the A/C condenser back in to take up that space?

sorry for the confusion, i took the pics as i was test fitting everything. the plate on the back of the radiator was there to install a pull fan if i wanted to. I would have just need to cut an opening if i were to use it.i left it in place for the moment as to not damage the radiator as i was moving it quite a bit to get everything in place.

yeah they were about two inches from the radiator at first. but after removing the plate i moved the mounting bracket to the rear and this pushed the radiator further forward, so now the radiator sits just behind the fans. no i have no future plans to reinstall the AC.

Here are some better pics after i got everything mounted the way i wanted it.

Yeah I saw the pics. looks good!


This came in the mail today! Now to fix the battery cables and get new terminals. Hopefully be able to have 192 running by the end of this week. Might leave the battery facing that direction or flip it the other way.
