I recently picked up this D16Y7 as a replacement engine for my sons 1999 Honda Civic. When it arrived I looked it over to make sure everything was OK, but also to see what kind of shape it was in.
This video outlines what to look for in a used engine, and provides tips for recommended maintenance before installation.
I hope you find this information useful!
