    I have an 82 civic. The sticker on the hood says the motor is a 1.5. It's not a cvcc car. I'm changing to a weber carb. According to the parts lists I can find it's listed as 197x-1983 1.2 and 1.5, 8 valve non cvcc being the only application for it. Here's the problem, the motor has the keihin 3barrel and 12 valves. The only casting number I can find on the block is HmS2 2F23. Can anyone tell what motor I have so I can get the correct adapter plate?

    the first year for the 12 valve carbed engine was 84 - the engine code is on the top rear of the block next to the starter hole - kind of like this:

    Any idea on year would be helpful also as supposedly the motor is original.

    google search found this:

    The EM displaced 1.5 L (1487 cc, 91 cu in) and was an SOHC 12-valve CVCC engine. Early versions produced 52 hp (39 kW) @ 5000 rpm and 68 ft·lbf (92 Nm) @ 3000 rpm, while later ones upped the output to 63 hp (47 kW) @ 5000 rpm and 77 ft·lbf (104 N·m) @ 3000 rpm. All used a 3 barrel carburetor.

    It's a 1982 Honda Civic GL 1500 with a carbureted motor. I'm trying to find out what motor is in it because to the best of my knowledge the 3 barrel carb and 12 valve head weren't offered until at least 1984
