    1987 Accord A20A1 warm start up problem

    Hi everyone, greetings from Costa Rica!

    I have a 1987 Accord LX, A20A1 engine with a 32/36 Weber Carb (K28 kit), im having problems when the car at warm temperature.

    At cold start it starts perfect, it doesnt turn off or anything.

    At warm termperature, if I turn it off for about 25 minutes, its very hard to start it up again. When it finally starts, some black smoke come from the exhaust.

    Ive changed filters, spark plugs, brand new distributor.

    Can someone please help me, im having this problem for about 5 years now

    Probably nothing a carb rebuild wouldn't fix. Possibly a bad float, or float adjustment.

    Rushell has fuel injection. You have a carb. Totally different animals.
