    Been fucking with Walters damn accord...his carb is FUBAR.....

    My back is killing me, its cutting into my sleep time....and it's a POS.(the carb)

    Fucked up thing...is he's put over 50,000 miles on the car.....and the secondary butterfly was rusted shut.


    the car has nearlly 200K's on it.....pissing oil, and all kinds of crap on the garage floor....and tommorrow...I get the joys of ripping that carb off, marking the hundreds of hoses on it...and trying to free up the secondary throttle shaft...I can hardly wait. If this little operation doesn't work....then another car gets to set at my driveway until parts can be found.

    I hated the carb'd 2.0 in my prelude. It didn't have any problems though. good luck.

    spray penetrating lube down there with it still on the car... See if it frees it up.. :) Then just dribble some gas down to wash the penetrating lube out... Just be careful... it might backfire... Done that before on an old carb'd cavalier. :)

    the bearing or sleeve that helps the secondary shaft rotate is rusted over...solid...PB blasster, and literally taking everything apart to get a vice grip on to the shaft...and trying to tap it to free it up...and no go....put it all back together...and it's just not working right...I got a little bit of air to flow across the butterfly...which is a good sign....but now the car wont idle right. I'll give it one more day to screw around with it, and see what happens.

    Remove the vac hoses from the carb side. They are all bent to their proper positions and clipped in the way they are supposed to be go.

    It's easy, when you trust the force.

    Of the Honda carbs I've seen, the only ones that had their secondaries rusted shut were the ones that were driven by granny-drivers... they were rusted shut from underuse! Tell him to get on the gas and open that secondary up more! :mrgreen:

    No problem! If the car's pissing oil from the driver's side, it's more than likely the oil pump gaskets. You'll need all three but it cleared up the problem for me after the car leaked oil for 4+ years. Oil leaks no more!

    The carbs are almost identical, but that first drawing is a completely different de-vac procedure than the one we suggest at the red pepper racing site... looks like it keeps the cold start features intact. I'll have to try that one out. :)

    Well...I got the carb off today, had to cut a lot of hoses...and sure enough...the damn secondary is friggen frozen solid...no amount of cleaning, soaking, tapping and cranking will free it up...and the point of this fix was to get the car drivable for his buddy for a winter beater...so the price of even getting a carb for it, the near 200K miles on the engine, being ran on only the primary throttle plate for the last 50+Ks....I see no possible way to get the car to pass emmissions for the guy that is buying it in less than a few days....that will not involve spending more money than what the car is worth...he was going to pay $400 for it...and with a better carb and a few vaccum lines, and a 13" tire...it would be possible to be road worthy again.

    So it will be pushed out into the road infront of my house tommorrow...with a signed title in the glovebox...and a tow truck for a car donation junkyard will be called...unless someone close wants to take the project on for a decent winter beater of a few bones....

    I might type up something tonight in the For sale forum...but it has to be gone ASAP....towed away and out of my eyesight in 2 days.....

    I got the Z's coming up tommorrow for their future demise.....and I need the space.
