Wanna watch a CVCC engine install in 5 minutes?

We’re not sure who or where this video was filmed in LA but it’s crazy to think even back in the day that the Honda engines were this simple to take out and put back in. Take this guys example with this ’79 Civic CVCC 1500 install. Probably alot harder than it looks due to all of the bolts and their locations, but he sure does make it look like it’s literally a piece of cake!

uploaded this video on youtube back in 2010!

Fast forward to roughly 2 weeks ago and the unfortunate happened. Chuy’s ’77 Civic meant the wall in a parking deck and didn’t recover too well. He was even registered to attend the JCCS 2012 that took place 2 weeks ago. We all can share the moment of when we park and aren’t sure if the car is at a deadstill or will roll. Hope you can recover from this Chuy and hope to see it back on the road soon, here’s props to you from Roots!
