yeah I bought the crank shaft holding hex Tool + the heavy duty thick 19mm socket.I’ll change it if it’s leaking but if it’s not leaking I’m not sure if I should.You can probably buy a metric set of wrenches pretty cheaply. I wouldn’t want to round anything off, especially the valve adjustment nuts. You can probably use a socket if you get it mostly tight and allow for the stew to turn a bit and then recheck and redo, if you don’t mind spending a long time. Edit: you can probably get it mostly tight with an adjustable spanner and then use a socket.
Whether you replace the motor mounts depends on their condition and your budget and whether you want to have to remove all the belts again and do it again.
I think the thing on the CV axle is a counter-weight and OEM axles are probably a lot better (maybe experienced people will comment).
I think you will be fine with the Aisin thermostat.
The leakage from the transmission line is probably the fitting leaking on the radiator. At least that’s what mine was and I had to replace the radiator. I put in a junkyard one. Maybe I’m crazy.
The dash brake light is the little red exclamation mark? That is th e parking brake light. My light would occasionally get stuck on too—I believe it’s worse in the cold.
With the door lock knob I’d try getting in there and lubricating the assembly and working it.
You may want to also think of your front oil seal while you’re in there, or at least inspect it for leakage. I couldn’t get the crank gear off so I gave up on that.
You may need the special Honda hex tool for the crank shaft pulley.
the brake light I believe says “brake” in a oval light, I’m changing the brakes all around and doing a brake flush anyways just wanted to see if there might be anything I should be looking out for. Oh and I forgot to pick up Honda DOt3 brake fluid, will valvoline DOT4 be okay? I have some new bottles from last year
I wiped up the transmission cooler line spot so next time I’ll be able to pinpoint what’s causing it (if it leaks again)
On the CV axle, I don’t think it’s a counterweight because it’s made of a hard rubber, looks more like a bump stop to not allow the axle past the forks. But I searched and didn’t find anyone swapping it over or anything, I just want to know if it’s necessary
And yeah I’ll order the motor mounts ifthey look bad.And I’m just gonna get a cheap 12mm box wrench off Amazon or HF
