just bought a d15 block and head for $150. me and a buddy of mine are going to start digging into it and try and figure out where everything is before we venture into our own cars. anyone know of a particular manual or website or anything that would be helpful in disassembling and reassembling the motor?

thanks.

Depending on which D15 it is the appropriate Haynes manual will have all that info and more.

D15A Honda Civic DX 1988-1991
D15A1 Honda CRX DX 1988-1991
D15A2 Honda CRX HF (Carbed) 1984-1987
D15B2 Honda Civic DX/LX 1988-1991
D15B6 Honda Civic HF/CRX HF 1988-1989
D15B6 Honda Civic HF/CRX HF 1990-1991
D15B7 Honda Civic DX/LX 1992-1995
D15B8 Honda Civic CX 1992-1995
D15Y7 Honda Civic DX/LX/CX 1996-2000
D15Z Honda Civic HF 1996-2000
D15Z1 Honda Civic VX 1992-1995

Or just the JDM D15B VTEC would also be a 1992-1995 Civic but it has the Z1 block with the D16Z6 head which are both outlined in the 92-95 Haynes manual.

Edit: That list is taken from this site. I think it's a typo because I'm 99.9% sure that the D15Y7 is supposed to be D16Y7.

90lxcivicnocat & thefiaman92:

I bought mine at Knechts Auto Parts. I don't know if that's a national chain or not... their parts suck. They tried to sell me a used/returned CV boot... they barely even wiped off the axel grease that was on it. And they tried to sell me brake pads that were obviously used... dirty and almost worn out... WTF!?!?

Now I only go there for brake fluid etc. because it's cheap. I think the manual was more like $14, but still pretty cheap.

You should be able to find it at most parts stores, $20 is too high - call parts stores and ask around or check Amazon, they usually have them for a good price.
