Re: Tool IMWA dont want you to have!

So with the OBDII adapter, you can read and erase troubleshooting codes, and look to see if the throttle bodies are balanced. Does the dealer tool have a way to adjust TB balance via software, or is it just monitoring like the OBDII? Apart from the ability to update the fuel map, what else does the ...

Re: Rebuilding a 3bbl carburetor

I've finally got the car moved into the bay where I'll be able to work on it sheltered from the weather. This has been weighing on my mind for a while, as I wasn't sure just how I would be able to do it. I finally decided to just get up and do it with whatever I could find lying around. Here's a (re...

Re: CrockPot carb cleaning

Well, I hadn't considered heating gasoline in the crockpot to clean parts. But now that you mention it, I may give it a try. :)

Re: Rebuilding a 3bbl carburetor

Finally, the peripherals are done! (Well except for the choke.) All the old parts I was going to reuse have been replaced with the new parts from the kits I found. I also got outside today and checked the electrics in the car that might affect fuel delivery. They're all working, so the issue must be...

Re: CrockPot carb cleaning

Lately I've been soaking stuff in the gasoline with the ethanol. Seems to get rid of grease, and leaves a powdery dirt residue which is then easy to wire-wheel off. For carburetors, I then go back with carb cleaner in the spray can to clean out all the channels, and use compressed air to verify that...

Re: Rebuilding a 3bbl carburetor

Thanks Lee! I'm always happy to get tips and advice from folks who have actually worked on these carburetors. (Or any carburetors.) Especially when I get to the on-car adjustment! A while back, I read up on checking for vacuum leaks. I'll have to refresh myself on that topic. Seems to be a very comm...

Found a couple rebuild kits with parts that will fit my carb!

Re: Tool IMWA dont want you to have!

Map upgrades are so infrequent, I don't see a need for having my own dealer tool. The OBDII reader seems perfectly adequate for what I need. Then again, I've had no issues with any of the maps. Maybe for those who are still having map troubles...

Re: My Projects for 2017

Glad my thread did someone some good. :) I just like to somehow conclude threads I start. So often I read a thread and it just ends and I wonder what ever happened with it. I'm not sure what year the starter got redesigned. Definity not 2014. But definitely 2017. I think maybe 2016 was the year they...

Re: My Projects for 2017

Well, 2017 was kind of a bust for customizations. I did get the rear wheel rebuilt and the speedometer gears replaced. 2018 isn't looking good either. I've got to get my old Civic's carburetor repaired, and I'll also be gone most of the year. Maybe 2019...

Re: Rebuilding a 3bbl carburetor

Made some progress on the carb. Lots of steel parts have been de-rusted and painted, the main body is back together, and I've adjusted the floats.


Still looking for a good carburetor forum to join if anyone knows of any. :)

Re: Rebuilding a 3bbl carburetor

Hotflash44: Your old '71 would have predated the cvcc. I think they were introduced in 79-ish. I don't know much about the air cooled engines, but lots of folks in California have done excellent work restoring those cars. They're quite fun to look at. :) Rivers: I think I forgot to mention that this...

Rebuilding a 3bbl carburetor

Before I get started, does anyone know of a good carburetor forum? I've done some Googling but no success so far. So, that wasn't a typo folks. Honda's old cvcc engines have 3bbl carburetors. The extra barrel feeds a pre-fire chamber with the spark plug. I'll spare you the technical explanation (unl...
