This is my build thread I copied over from another forum. Gonna post updates here as well.
Just picked up my 1986 Prelude 2.0 Si 5spd yesterday (March 10, 2017) for 400 dollars. It has 170k on the odometer. It runs but not great. May need yalls help diagnosing the problem, but I'll get to that later in the post.
My name is John, I live in southeast Texas. I've been working on cars as long as I can remember. This Prelude makes the 4th vehicle that I currently own, but it's my first Honda. Always wanted one, just never imagined my first would be a 2g prelude.
It's in decent shape considering the age and the money I paid for it. It needs carpet, the previous owner ripped it out for some unknown reason. Seats have seen better days. No rust besides a little surface rust on the trunk lid. She's running rough right now and unsure of why.
She's getting way too much gas for one and it's finding its way into the oil. It runs super rich and blows little bits of oil out of the exhaust. It's got brand new plugs in it, but they keep getting fouled out by all of the unburnt gas. It's also got an oil leak from somewhere on the bottom end of the motor. I didn't get a chance to look into that yesterday before I had to leave for work.
Any help would be highly appreciated.
Enough with the talk here's some pictures.
