Just finished the 49th day ceremony over the weekend back in Japan.
Now we can bury the ashes in the grave.
Lived too long outside of Japan and for us, it was first time experience so everyday leant something new since July.

Now back to Eng Refresh.


The exhaust gasket was completely squashed and wedged inside the groove.
Took long time removing it one piece at a time.
From the rust markings, looks like it was not replaced last time when this connection was disturbed.
Probably already seized inside there by that time.
New gasket will be used on installation.

New coolant hoses and hose bands at the oil cooler.

Crank pulley now torqued to the spec.

VTEC spool valve and solenoid cleaned to this level.
They were rusty and covered in oil, debris so gently polisehd them.

Looking good.

Oil press sender unit also back in place with new o-ring.
