Thought maybe the accelerator pump, but me and one of the tech's at work tore into it and actually found that the low idle adjustment was bottomed out. We adjusted it way up and now seems pretty good, but we'll have the best test for it tomorrow morning

**Updated** Once the base idle was adjusted up, it runs pretty good now other than some typical sitting for two years spitting and spuddering.... Plugs, wires, cap and rotor button, along with a fuel filter to come this week end.... lol I think a buddy of mine has me talked into tinting the windows and flat blacking it lol.... once the rocker panels are fixed of course Lift

Pretty good deal for a daily driver..and if that Honda is anything like the Accord I used to drive you'll be good for another 100k easy lol.

**updated** got the plugs, wires, cap and rotor all finished up this weekend.. also found my leak in the rear hatch so now I know what I have to do there... almost feels like I'm doing a restore project lol

I did notice a lack of pics for this so I managed to get the ones off my phone on here....

Well if you get it to keep going for that long..around that time I'd suggest checking the timing belt lol. That's how the Honda I had was lost. [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

For all you carb guys out there, I'm still having a little trouble.... when ever I turn my lights on at idle ( like sitting at a stop light) it stalls. If i turn them out quick, it idles right back up and does fine. WTF! Suicidal

Not sure if it is carb related or not but what is the possibility of a vacuum leak causing that? Maybe something with the extra load from the lights that is causing it? Just a thought.

We've tore the air cleaner off and went through all the vacuum lines and couldn't find any holes or leaks. Actually only found one that looked a little shady and replaced it. I did put an new alternator and drive belt on it, but I had the charging system checked the day after and was putting out 14.3V and 13.5V loaded. The old alternator was fried, actually the reason it broke down on me back when I first started driving it.

Love it when things work out nicely..... I figured up gas mileage on the Civic today.. 32.8 MPG and its still not even running completely right, in the city beating back and forth to work BigSmile

I think I've came to a decision ... once I get the body work done.. Im gonna plastidip the whole car flat black and go neon green on the wheels lol, then undercoat the entire underside, just to be a little different. Scott and I were commenting on a guys cobalt that he had done that too, and the finish looked awesome.. if it looks like the focus that was plastidiped at our show, i'd be cool with that... figured its much cheaper than an actual paint job, but since it's parked in the garage until I can get all of the fuel lines repaired or replaced... seems like a good thing to do, that way it'll be ready for winter.

I love the old imports... just never owned one this old lol once I get the fuel lines taken care of, the body is the only thing wrong with it... doesn't leak a drop of oil and runs strong as hell.... er well as strong as 70hp will run lol

hahaha I guess so... although I was into Honda back in the day... I would imagine a d16y or maybe a b16 would swap in nicely .. but don't think it'll ever go that far.

its not the hp that honda's have a problem with, its the lousy torque... a 1.6l or a 1.8l isnt much displacement

Which is why they have close geared trannys. Honda's dont need much tq because of their weight.

High revs is made to overcome the low torque. Since hp is basically torque, at an equation of torque x rpm / 5100 or something like that, increasing revs while maintaining relative torque increases hp. I'm sure you all knew that, just got a brain twitch and had to say it. So yeah close ratio transmission + high revs makes up for torque loss. Actually I think its a good formula for FWD cars with the weight transfer to the back on accelleration, since you have to get up a little speed to get into the powerband, you are at less risk of spinning the tires if you get enough power.

Sorry, haha, still can't wait to see more.
