Actually that may be the thermostat staying open or completely missing,therefore the,engine never properly warms up enough to move the gauge.
sensor is the single pin one on the back of the intake manifold, make sure the connector isn't corroded

Hello everyone. I have an 86 accord that needs a new combination switch but all I can find used is from 87-89 accords. I've read that the newer combination switches won't work without modafaction to it. I was thinking of switching the column to the 87-89 years, yet don't know if I can use my 86 steering wheel on the newer columns. Anyone do this with any luck? As I don't like the 4 button horn idea. Also could I change it to use my key, or would I be stuck using two (one for the door and one for the ignition) tried looking around but couldn't find any info about this. Thanks ✌️
there is a slight difference in the mid generation between 87-87 and 88-89 which moves the brackets the combination switch mounts to, so it's hard to fit an 88-89 on the earlier cars, I did but it wasn't easy, there is a good writeup on here from Russian kid which tells how to dismantle and repair the switch. There are no new switches available, you have to repair the switch or find a good used one, the main problem is the low beam contact burns out on these cars, if you fix the switch, I would highly recommend you do the relay modification for the headlights, this lets relays handle the current instead of the switch contacts. most Honda steering wheels that are pre airbag will fit the factory column, with the teg wheel you have to do some shaving down of the back of wheel or it will rub the trim, I have a first generation wheel, which is in my personal opinion, one of the best looking wheels, other then the S cars wheels, it fit with no modification at all, if you have cruise on your car, and you want a wheel without it, you will need to find a junkyard car with the horn contact, it attaches with a single screw after you remove the cruise control slip ring,

I have an 88 accord dx. It's carb number is ed07e. And I am at the junkyard looking for a replacement carb to rebuild. I can only find an 89 accord with a carb ed07g. Here is my question. If my stock carb is an ed07e, will it work to pull an ed07g and rebuild that and install it on my car? I'm working with a string shoe budget and know I should just get a Weber. But this is where I'm at now.
Can I make this work with little issues?
I will eventually get a Weber for it later after taxes.
Thanks in advance.

Do you have to pass a smog test?

Not the cali smog test. But I do have a tail pipe emissions once a year.
I need to find a carb for an 87 accord lx just bought the car and it has idle and start and stalling issues there was a 10 mm bolt jammed in the carb to hold the flap open
Does anyone know what this is/does? I changed all three belts on my (86 carbed DX) and eliminated the manifold water lines, did the temp sender relocation thing also. The box/relay now makes a bad clicking noise when the car is running but not with just the key on. Best I can find from searching is that it may have something to do with the AC system. I tried a jy one yet it did the same thing. It never made this fast clicking noise before the belt change and mani water line removal. Side note... I have the Weber 32/26 if that helps at all.
I think I finally got it... If it's plugged in I get power to the efe plug, but my Weber isn't useing the efe system. So I just unplugged the relay and if all goes well I'll remove it when I remove unused wires in the engine bay. If not, I'll plug it back in and keep on searching for more info about it.
I am in the process of searching for this answer, but in case someone can answer before I find it; will an '89 Fuel Injected A20A3 Cylinder Head work on an '86 Fuel Injected BT block? Thank you
https://www.3geez.com/forum/general-e...a3-swap-s.html Sorry here's the link
Hahaha, you're funny. Okay so it sounds like I can put an '89 A20A3 head on my '86 BT block. The blocks are identical, correct? Only thing different are the contents (pistons)?
The 89's intake has dual runners and a 4-2-1 exhaust, where the 86 has single runners and a 4-1 exhaust. Everything I've read on here seams to be that the heads will swap. Intake mani,exhaust and pistons are the only diffrance I've heard of. I have seen where people say the 88-89 may have a slight different cam then the 86-87's.
Hmmm, that could be big, if the computer thinks one thing about the timing but the cam is mechanically different. If need be I'll use the '89 ECM and see. Okay well I'll go ahead and swap them. When I do, I'll post my progress in another head. I really hope I don't waste money on this
