well not sure if this is the right spot but i posted here. i am going to pick it up on monday. will post pics then. its a 83' civic 4 door. got it for $300 from a cop....lol. but any how it will get some tlc and new tires and what not. maybe a paint job. runs good just needs a starter. body has no dents interior is in supprizingly good shape for the year. going to do a minor restore on it. and let my girl druive it the 2 miles to work every day!!!!! this was a great find. will update on monday
 
nope.... i think its got a 1.5 in it...... going to keep it as oem as possible. its in too good of shape to mess with. going to clean it up. replace anything that needs it. put some tastefull rims and a system in it. maybe a paint job later. i dont think there is any rust on it. i will post pics onj monday.
 
will post them today. i still have not got it yet. going to go put a starter on her. and if she runs good then i will get it on the spot.
 
well still no pics......but i did get my new weber 2/brl carb in today. going to put it on when i get off work today. hopefully it will start right up. anyone ever used a weber carb? ant helpfull tips?i will try to take pics of the install./
 
yeah the fucktards sent me the adapter plate for a 79-82 nissan. i just got the right plate in this morning and will finish the carb. install after work. got some pics will post them when i am done with the install. thinking of retro fitting my oem prelude exhaust to the civic. its a little bigger than the civic one and with the new carb should run alot nicer. any opinions?
 
Should work fine- you're not looking for ultimate performance on it anyway. ;)
 
how do i get my name in orange? or do i have to be an admin? and is there any other colors i can get my name changed to?

Weber carbs are the easiest thing in the world to play with. I am going to assume that your kit came with the 32/36 DGEV carb like 99% of them do. Read the instructions that come in the box and follow the base setup procedure. I have found that on most cars and especially on Honda's you will need to run the "mixture" screw in quite a bit once you get it started and begin fine tuning it. Also I have seen the need for advancing the timing a little with these guys. Make sure you have your vacuum advance for the distributor hooked up to manifold vacuum and not to the carb. Let me know if I can be of any help on this project. I have installed many weber conversions over the last few years.

Can you post a picture? normally there is a package in the kit that has a universal linkage kit that works well with minor adjustments. there should be a piece of metal that is kinda shaped like a pie slice with the narrow end bent into an offset and a bunch of holes drilled into the outer area of the big end. that part fits onto the throttle shaft of the carb and than you attach the cable to it with a little post and washer setup that is also in the kit.
