It depends upon which year the trans came out of. There is a break in the year as to the number of splines on the input shaft of the transmission. You will need to remove the trans, count the teeth on the input shaft of the transmission (the part that slides into the clutch disc and then count the teeth on the clutch disc (or easier, see if the clutch disc will slide on the transmission without it being attached to the flywheel).

Ok I rebought an ef that me and my buddy built last year; the only reason I have a Honda project is because they are supposedly cheap reliable and easy to find parts. Now heres my problem the car had a 4spd zc in it which isnt a good combo, so we bought a 5spd tranny for it; and i bought a new exedy clutch and throw out bearing.

I put them on put the trans back on only to find that one of you cool honda kids sold us a trans with a broke shifter fork, im not going to name names but we got ripped off....im trying to get the car ready for import alliance; so I bought a si tranny and had it delivered to put in my car paid my buddy to do it because of work i didnt have time to do it he tries putting it in all day and it wont click in. We are thinking its the clutch out of line; so we go on 4 trips to get a pilot alignment tool because they told us it was different sizes each time even Redell Honda so finally I took it off.

I take it all over and make sure we get the right size pilot tool only to find out the new clutch wont even fit the si for some gay reason that no one has ever mentioned or that I could find after searching.

Whatever; another supposedly smart Honda friend tells me yeah they are different i can get you the si clutch by tommorow morning.

I had surgery today but my dad got the clutch for me brings it home guess what same mother fucking size and doesnt fit the si tranny, I now have hundreds of dollars of tranys and clutches laying around and lost money for paying my buddy for his labor i have realy lost my interest in this car can some one shed light as to wtf is up with the trans not fitting it is an L3 i bought from a tennspeed member and came out of an si crx

You said smart, didn't emphasize on what part.

Don't buy shit without checking it over.


Thats a 21T clutch.

Now as for your other problems, I'd have to come up there to fix.

Oh fuck your clusterfuck typing, I'm done trying to help you.

If you want to see what I'll do for someone, ask 280ZX.

Nothing is sacred when It comes to money, not even peoples words.

First off did you swap the car?

Or is it still the D15?

hmm

you didnt specify whether you have a sohc or dohc ZC motor, and both can be tricky unless you research..i'm surprised you got the 4-speed to work properly on the zc motor, but the best bet is an early si tranny, or god forbid a 1st gen integra transmission, then you have to worry about axle swaps

easy cheap route...buy a junkyard single cam d-series motor, sell off the zc, swap on the si trans, and drive the hell out of it

just like with any car brand, there are 2 people who think they know what they are talking about, for every 1 who really does...sorry u got burned, but dont get shi**y with ppl when asking for help, doesnt really speed things along!
