D3300 is setting a good example
Default Gauge cluster wiring issue, billet cam seal, VTEC solenoid gasket

I also finally took off this duckbill off the rear of my car and gave it to my sister for her civic. It actually fit perfect on her car surprisingly, even though it wasn't meant for her car. The duckbill wasn't really my style and the look i was trying to achieve for my car.



So when i bought my integra the owner told me the gas gauge didn't work and it always reads empty. So he didn't specifically tell me why and as far as i known everything should be plugged in back there. What do we do, we tear my car apart and start testing things with our trusty multimeter and everything was checking out fine. We didn't once think about taking the actual cluster out and inspecting it. After doing all the inspecting of the fuel pump area we finally take out the gauge cluster. Since this cluster is a JDM ITR cluster i guess in the back there is no fuel plug for the gauge. I never read up on it so it was probably a mistake on my part. This was very frustrating.. lol for the most part we put the car back together. I am currently looking for a stock gsr gauge cluster/no trades... So if you are selling one and reading PM me.







Finally took out the cluster


No fuel plug


Interior put back together,



When i say everything in this car needs to be replaced i am not lying. It's all the stuff over time the previous owner neglected. I am always about maintenance first and making sure i keep the longevity of my cars.

Today's installs:


Replacing the old cam seal with a billet one from BLOX. I know you are thinking WHY BLOX? To my knowledge if was the only billet one that i found of a brand that i knew of. I didn't want another OEM one it just looked like it wouldn't hold like the one on the car and a nice billet one seemed the way to go.







why i chose to change the cam seal, it was leaking


Old cam seal






old vs. new






New cam seal installed









Replaced the VTEC solonoid with OEM gasket.


old vs. new


installed


Replaced the valve cover gaskets with of course OEM Honda gaskets. It really needed this the one that was currently on there was old cracked and crusty.












Everything clean and buttoned up



Also did an oil change cause it was time. Changed oil now i am using Motul 10w40.



These last two pictures are of my integra and John's old DA race car(sold), the only pictures with both of our cars together. Also notice the duckbill gone from the rear of my car? Looks good!
