    i bought a 1985 crx hf a few months back and i am somewhat new to the honda cvcc engines, i have done a lot of reading about them and understand how they work. i am wondering if anybody has removed all the vaccum lines and black boxes and only kept the necessary items for basic carb operation. i know the carb concept is not basic but i am a certified mechanic so i can figure things out and make it work. just wondering if someone else has done it before. thanks for input

    New to the forum too.

    Debatting about the same question as this carb is an absolute headache, or should I say that the carb control system is too much to deal with as the carburation controls mostly the amount of air that is passing thru various ports and valves.
    I am failing smog for High NOx as the engine is running lean, the smog tech said that a new cat may fix it.... May be, may be not.... the egr is working and the O2 sensor is cycling. So for the price of a new cat I can get a weber...

    Red Pepper Racing has a full how to on desmogging the carburetor. Not recommended in colder climates though.

    Or in a state where you need to get visually inspected. You'll fail right off the bat.

    It makes working on the car 2459783489573458903459083493845 times easier though.

    Just did mine, runs a whole lot better.As long as the car does not require an emissions test, remove all that junk. If that does not help, then get a weber carb, So far the stock carb is working fine with all the junk removed.
