My parents purchased their 1986 Accord new from the dealeraship. It was well maintained. It was never in a collision. It only has 143,000 miles (230,000 kms). The interior is immaculate. There is a small amount of rust near the rear wells. They recently gifted the car to my son for his 16th birthday. Lucky kid!
I am helping my son learn how to work on his own car. We recently replaced the timing belt (it had never been replaced), waterpump, main front crankshaft seal, front camshaft seal, alternator belt, power steering belt, both tie rods, both lower ball joints and both CV axles.
The resonator pipe (Honda calls it a "B" pipe part # 18220SE0A26) has rusted out and needs to be replaced. It has been discontinued by Honda and I can't find an aftermarket version. Seems like Walker and Bosal discontinued theirs.
I have tired eBay, Amazon, RockAuto, CarID, PartsAvatar, Car Geeks, Napa and O'Reilley with zero luck.
Besides a junk yard, any suggestions?
