We swapped out the existing H23A which had just had $3,000 worth of head replacement done. The crank bearings lasted a couple of weeks after the head was done so we decided to replace the whole thing.
Juli, Alex and Patrick picked up a H23A with 200,000klms, from Casino NSW in December 2011.
We swapped the motor over the Christmas break. The replacement engine is great. No smoke (checked at night with a torch), runs smooth. No crank walk.

How to Remove the Crank Shaft Pulley Bolt on a Honda Accord
I broke my 180lb torque wrench trying to get this off!! Here is how we got it off. As you see in the video we put a 6 foot pipe (from our car jack) on the end on our breaker bar. I bent that thing down to the FLOOR almost six times until we got that bolt off! I heated the bolt with a blow torch in between my attempts. Upon inspection it looks like the idiot that I bought the car from was super anal and put Lock Tight on the bolt!!!
Oops, Axle and Ball Joint Replacement - EricTheCarGuy
Oops, Axle and Ball Joint Replacement
Sorry I missed you last week, I had this video half done and didn't get a chance to finish. Well we have our 1990 Accord again, I'm getting some mileage out of this one but I don't mind cause there are still quite a few of these on the road and a few of you have claimed ownership to one of these 4th generation Accords, so enjoy. A couple of things to note, I could do a video on taking out the wishbone bolt alone, I've run into a few problems here such as a rusted bolt that won't come out of it's bushing as one example, perhaps future videos will show how to overcome this problem. I thought this one went together well despite the fact that you might be getting sick of Honda Accords, I still have more from other makes that I haven't edited or posted yet. I have more to this video as well that may show up in DVD form at one point, YouTube only gives me 10min to work with but I think that is enough to get you started and not lose interest.
Perhaps you could help by submitting questions in the form of text responses or what I would really like is a video response to something I've put out there, that would be great.

98 Honda Prelude H22a4 Head Gasket Replacement PT1
I just bought this car fairly cheap. It had dropped a valve in cyl #4, damaged the original head, and piston. I replaced the head and piston. The car ran good for a few days, and then it blew the head gasket. I originally used a cheap JIS head gasket. This time around I used a Fel-Pro head gasket. I had to have the head rechecked, and machined. Everything checked out fine.
