This project may take a few years before it running under it's own power, but it will be worth it.



Fellow SOHC's, I would like to introduce my Son, Simon.  ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

(Looks like I got the K8 running just in time, huh?)

Actually, that picture was taken at about 30 minutes old.  ;D Man, I was a blubbering idiot. I think I cried more than he did.  ;)

20 years ago, in May, I went throught he same thing.  It is transformational.

They grow up FAST.  Enjoy the time you have with both of them, for time is fleeting.

Congratulations to all 3 of you, and hope for the wifes speedy recovery.

I know this is an old thread, but just for anyone's future reference, as a former Honda dealer mechanic for many years in the late '60s thru 70's, and also speed shop mechanic early '70s, our fix for frozen motors due to water/sitting too long, take out the plugs, get any water out with air hose, spray your favorite penetrating oil in there ( our fave was LPB parts blaster ), give it a day or maybe overnite to do its work, then remove the dyno cover, grab a breaker bar and the proper 6-point socket, and patiently work it back and forth.    It should loosen up after a bit, and when the starter will turn it over nice, blow out what you can from the cylinders, spray in a little starting fluid ether, and fire that mother up.   Always nice seeing that rust-colored mess fly out of the exhaust.
