    Will probably fit, don't know if it will rub, I'd guess not. Tires about 1.5" too tall though.

    Re: Have a quick question? Ask it here!

    Is there any aftermarket light options all the way around (besides headlights) or maybe off a different car. I'm looking for the trunk mounted taillights on my 88'DX coupe. Maybe taillights too I'm not too happy with the old school red and orange

    There are no aftermarket options for lights around the car. This is an 80s car so old school red and orange is what you get. There have been some people to convert their tail lights to LED, not just replacing the bulb but making a board with multiple LEDs in a pattern.

    Hi all, Which is your Go-to brand on gaskets? I'm looking to do a full engine gasket replacement, rockauto only offers the Apex branded gasket set. I checked autozone, which can ship Fel-Pro for $30 more. (For an '89 4d LX-i)

    *edit steering clear from autozone**

    I have a 87 Honda Accord LXi. It drives completely fine. Every once in a while I'll turn over the key and there will be no turnover at all. All the lights will come on and everything but it just won't start. Sometimes I'll wait for like 5 minutes and it'll be completely fine. My battery terminal is clean and connected. Starter or ignition system problem?

    '86 dash clock removal?

    I have a 1986 LXI Hatchback that I'm trying to remove the center mounted dash clock on so I can tinker with it. I've taken off the bezel and the 2 screws on either side, but I can't figure out how to remove it? Is there another screw? I really hope I don't have to remove the whole dash for this😅

    Nvm, it's just a really tight fit. I had to pry it out with a plastic screwdriver but it's out now💪

    Re: Have a quick question? Ask it here!

    Anyone know the best make/model alternator for an 86-87 Accord DX/LX? Rockauto fucked me sideways with an AC Delco one, it doesn't fit despite saying it's for a DX/LX and the part number matching up.
    AND NO, I AM NOT BUYING A REMAN.
    HondaPartsNow apparently still stocks new OEM Denso ones. Last time I used that site though they claimed to have new radiators still and then told me they were DC'd after I placed an order and refunded me.

    Idk, buy a regulator, hell you could buy one for literally any car and just run wires, all they are is 4 diodes. Only other thing that's going to be bad on an alternator is the bearing, unless the windings are broke, then it's totally screwed. Only thing wrong with buying a reman is the price you pay for a core with a new bearing and regulator, so do it yourself.

    If you have an OEM alternator i would rebuild it before replacing it.

    Just hook the vacuum lines up somewhere, the cruise cable is attached to the throttle pedal. If it worked before it should still work.

    What are you talking about? You gave that up when you installed a 38/38, that carb is lucky to have a choke. Just turn the idle up to where it doesn't die with the AC and headlights on, if it's automatic then you might have to make sure it's also ok when it goes into drive. You might need to babysit it when it's cold.

    Re: Have a quick question? Ask it here!

    Ah, yeah. Ive found some posts where people have used aftermarket Idle solenoids mounted to be switched on manually to assist with idle when the AC is on, so thats what I plan on doing in the near future.
