Recommended Posts

ok so what was originally thought was the problem with this accord that fell into my hands was blown head gasket, well a friend worked on it a lil and said it wasnt, but now it apparently starts up for a few seconds then backfires straight up out the carb? so can anyone help out? if its fixable then ill buy it off of him

 

89 accord some 236k miles lol

Sorry Chubs but a lot of hondas production cars up until 91 had carbs or dual-point injection. look at all the civics. or with dual-point injection. but yeah if your blowin out the carb adjust your ignition timing back a couple of degrees and see wat it does then start movin it forward a lil at a time

we flew right by that bandwagon after getting a 505 horsepower engine getting 26mpg highway. even tbi in the early 90's was good performing, gave big trucks about 15 mpg which was very good back then. oh and domestics has fuel infection earlier then that. i think 85 or 87 was the first years.

 

dude there are guys getting 600 horsepower out of 4 bangers and keeping them streetable. 505 from a smallblock is no big feat. and by the way i work in the medical field but ive never heard of "fuel infection"

 

the 85 CRX Si had an EFI motor in it. but EFI didnt really become standard practice until after 91 and the same is true for domestics. i had an 87 cavalier that had a carb on it. ran like crap though. but lasted. bitch was a tank.
