good call my man. my culprit was a broken fork. my only question to you is, how did you attach the spring clip to the prelude fork?

With the new style fork it no longer uses that riveted spring clip like the stock one. Instead it uses a wire clip that goes into slots cut into the fork. You will need both the clip and fork which are separate part numbers.
Fork P/N: 22821-PX5-000
Spring Clip P/N: 22835-PX5-A00

First you put the wire clip onto the fork and just put the fork on top of the pivot bolt and press down. the wire clip is flexible so it will separate and then pop down under the pivot bolt head.

Here is where i found some of the info for the fork swap. It shows the old and new fork as well as it installed.

lol, it happens.

In what way was your fork broken? one of the tangs on the spring clip on mine broke which i think after years of rubbing broke off the head of the pivot bolt.

Mine kind of looked like this

Default transmission re-installation

after a DOA clutch kit mishap and other various problems, im putting everything back together.

tranny is on the engine, but i cant get all the bolts to line up. i can get every one except the two rear engine mount bolts. Ive been messing around with loosening and even removing most of the bolts but cant see to move the tranny back the necessry 1-2 cm towards the rear of the car.

can anyone who has done this job tell me the order they put tranny bolts in? i was just doing the FSM removal order in reverse.

I had to use a floor jack and wood 2x4 to brace the bottom of the motor to adjust it around so i could get the bolts in. i didnt tighten any of them down until i had them all started, except for the starter motor bolts which i did last. I did my car in my buddys shop with a hydraulic lift so i was able to stand up under the car which really helped a lot.
