wooo.. u have got the parts from all over the world.. hehe, how? ebay?
Ebay, Word on the street, 1stGenCivic.org
Done loads on this at the weekend.................
1. Fitted Pertronix Electronic Ignition. Essentially it means you ditch the points and never have to set them again.It fits in the dizzy cap so looks stock from outside
I extended the wires in the kit using heat shrink butt crimps for reliability and strength
Seems to start better and rev easier now
2. I noted i had some petrol leaking from my carb recently plus it seems that i have to crank the engine a while before the engine fires
Anyway ive had a rebuild kit sitting in the garage for a while so i thought i would give it ago.
Here it is sat on the manifold. Looks dirty
The carburetor spacer. I noted a lot of petrol was sitting in the manifold.
A bit murky
Murky float bowl.
Finished this job up. It was quite easy.
Nice and clean now.
I reused the small collar filter on the needle seat
All back together and running great
3. Clean the inside of the bonnet ready for paint. It had been treated with ziebart 30 years ago but i want new paint on it so a mate stepped in and steam cleaned it for me
Made easywork of it.
Looking much better and almost ready for fresh paint. Glad i did it too as a few patched of rust are appearing.
Got some new JNC stickers too but they can wait after the new paints on
