    Re: Have a quick question? Ask it here!

    I have a 86 Accord LX. Carbureted. What plugs give reliable and good mileage? Copper or platinum?

    TIA

    NGK copper... Platium is the biggest waste of money for a spark plug, if you want long life get an iridium

    I would follow the book procedure until you understand what your looking at and the function of the cam and rocker arm.

    In general you adjust valves with the rocker arms on the base circle of the a cam AKA the loose side.

    Possible alternator swap?

    I have a 1983 accord that keeps going through voltage regulators. Wondering if a later model or any internally regulated alternators would direct fit.

    A20A3 is the woodruff key for the crank pulley and the timing belt gear one piece, or are there two keys, one for each?

    Thanks. I just got the key from Honda. By the size of it there must be two. The pulley bolt came loose, and it fell off! Engine still runs fine, so must be another one for the timing belt sproket.

    Are you sure you didn't get the one for the cam?
    Make sure you put that bolt back on with loctite or all the ugga duggas your impact can handle

    Re: Have a quick question? Ask it here!

    anything at all on how to replace the clutch cable on a 87 honda accord lxi pgmfi ? Access under the dash looks impossible. No videos on any car with a clutch cable. I already have the parts. No threads I could find here about it. Nothing in my manuals showing me the procedure. No searching results in the forums here for clutch cable or cable show anything , not that im about to cycle through 480 pages of threads.

    Pretty sure its just hooked over the end. Its tight, yeah, but you should just barely be able to see it.

    Re: Have a quick question? Ask it here!

    I found a video of a guy showing a pedal assembly outside the car and he showed me how to hook it. I managed to replace my clutch cable in about an hour. Fully adjusted. Thanks for the reply! I used a piece of guide wire to thread through the hole in the pedal assembly and firewall to help guide the new cable hook through and then it was a huge pain, but I got the hook over the top of the highest point on the clutch pedal. It was overall easier than I thought. I was afraid I needed more access under the dash to get to the top of the clutch pedal. Luckily, my hands are as small as the Japanese.

    Its not a fun job, it is surprisingly cramped behind the dash. Leave that to all 3 pedals being strangely overcomplicated

    The timing sprocket on the crank has a key cast as part of the sprocket.
    The key you got from Honda is, as you said, for the crank pulley only.

    Thanks. I fixed it. I can't believe it came loose! Should have left hand thread so when one uses for valve adj. it could not come loose!

    Rockauto.com has stock replacement options but if you want anything more you are own your own for custom work.

    Re: Have a quick question? Ask it here!

    Hey there, I'm back again with another question. I did a vacuum smoke test and looks like I have a leak coming from the ?"by-pass body assembly"? Here is a picture, it's not leaking from the gaskets it's at the spring. My question is where can I get another one? or can I somehow repair it?

    Where was it leaking from? You probably just need to replace the gaskets

    Re: Have a quick question? Ask it here!

    Cant see the picture yet (sometimes its delayed in showing after the post) but i would assume you can take it apart, the spring off and most likely find an o-ring in there you could replace. I dont know if its an oring but i would assume it is. By the way not all orings are equal, you want one made from the material that can withstand oil and gas. I forgot what kind that is, automotive grade at the hardware store.

    Hows that for a generic answer.
