Now THAT's a new one to me.

Yeah, I think some of the clunking that I am experiencing are the motor mounts bottoming out. Some Googling suggests this was a thing with the 7th generation Civics. I looked at them and they are intact (no splits anywhere), but when the engine runs they don't dampen any vibration. I can push down on the engine by hand and bottom out the driver's side mount, squashes like it is made of foam.

They don't look too hard to replace (except the rear mount, need a lift for that). I just ordered an aftermarket mount set and will put it in when they come in.

That kind of thinking is what entices those bolts to seize further than is reasonable.

Any reason you haven't looked at the Raspberry Pi 3? It's got a decent performance bump compared to the 2 if that's an issue.

Actually its just a matter of availability and rapid research. I can get a complete Raspberry Pi 2 kit (+case, radiators, power supply) in less than 24 hours by geographic coincidence. It would take a few days longer with a Raspberry Pi 3 and cost a bit more.

Also the Raspberry Pi 3 has a onboard Wifi module, which might make it less suitable because of security concerns... don't ask, it makes no sense unless you are inside a closed system of axioms...

FYI, the Pi 2 and Pi 3 have the same hardware now. The only difference is the addition of the Wifi module.

Huh? last time I checked, the Pi3 did have more cpu cores. Has it been downgraded?

Penetrating oil has already been applied, and my torch and 2' breaker bar are at the ready. Original torques are all around 30 ft-lb, so with seizing it should only require 10x that amount of torque to snap the bolts back them out.

Actually the only difficulty is getting a tool on these bolts without dismantling half of the engine. My driver side mount is easily accessible, the front mount less so, and my transmission mount requires the air box to be removed.

The rear mount requires a lift to access it from the bottom. Enlisting the aid of children or small women with small hands and super-human grip strength would definitely be a nice-to-have.

Visit your local climbing gym and hold up a cardboard sign outside. Plenty of small women with super-human grip strength there.

A couple of months after the Pi 3 release, the Pi 2 got the same CPU as the Pi 3. Note that this is the Pi 2 v1.2.

I found that being a photographer does that for me. Also looking like me helps.
