    I got an 84 accord for free.C= and have questions

    ok so first off it backfire out of the tail pipe when shifting for decelerating. i saw a post about it but lost it and could not find it again.

    I want to put a header on it but have no clue what one to get. this is my first Honda so have no clue.(Aircooled VW guy Here)

    what spark plugs can i put in. only ones i found are standard plugs.

    you need to check the carburetor, i post this in the begining of the year, i replace my carb because the one i have was passing to much gasoline and every time i shift gear i got a back fire explosion, it was cool at nigth because you can see the flash in the back but i was burning to much fuel like 14 mpg, rigth now i got like 22 mpg whit this new carb. the only thing is that my car only goes like 85 to 90 mph and thats all that can go.

    Check the code of the plugs your car comes with; the code tells things like thermal range, thread, size, whether they have a resistor or not and I don't remember what else. Armed with that info check say NGK's website and you may get an idea of which platinum spark plug to order. My 5G civic supposedly came with copper plugs but it is running with platinum ones (NGKs) The platinum plug will have almost the same exact code

    http://www.ngksparkplugs.com/product...lugs/index.asp

    There should be a page somewhere in which they explain the meaning of letters and numbers in spark plug codes; I could not find it but I saw it somewhere... or wait until someone with experience in 2Gs pops in and give you the exact advice
    If it ain't broke... I fix it!

    All the listings I can find say that the BUR6EB-11 is the proper plug. Sounds like you're running 2 levels colder or hotter, not sure which. But I've tried swapping 2 levels hotter and colder plugs in my Accord and it resulted in some shitty running.

    Also, welcome fellow Washington member! You should come to the Karting meet next month at SyKart in Tukwila!! My friend will be there with an A20 swapped 84 Accord. I don't think I'll have my 84 running by then though.

    but before you buy any spark plugs i recomend you to repair your carb because the car is going to damage your sparks plugs, i did the same thing and i damage 3 sets of NGK

    Here's a link to the Meet thread for all the info:

    https://www.3geez.com/forum/showthread.php?t=73129

    Weber swap isn't too hard. It was the first real "mod" I had ever done on a car. If you're in Auburn though, I dunno what kind of emissions restrictions you have, but it's doubtful it will pass with a Weber on it.

    you got that for free?!? have i told you that i hate you yet?



    looks like a great car man! do a webber swap and enjoy her the way she should of been from factory!

    (btw turabaka passed smog in his webber 3g in idaho, i would think WA would have similar emissions to idaho, i highly doubt there as strict as cali )

    I don't think i have to take emissions i think the cut off is 1986 in king country i cant remember tho.


    you hate me lol the reason why i got it for free is that my supervisor didn't want to deal with it cause he said it had to many problems but i only changed the brake booster on it and it works fine.

    It's definitely got a nice looking dash. How's the rest of the interior? It's probably equally minty, I'd imagine.

    nah i dont ya, but damn everyone in WA seems to get free cars i need to move there, i paid $500 for car in my sig pic , i cant complane to much though i got a 91 accord for $300 becuase of a bad wheel bearing gave that car to my parents though .

    but yeah man throw some nice wheels on there like some fat fives, get some fresh black tint (and repaint the trim around the windows) and throw a webber on there and you will love that car ^_^

    the interior is good the carpet has same stains on it and the pocket on the passenger side is ripped and the rear seat the thread is coming apart but thats about it.


    i need to first replace the front struts they are crap. then its the weber header and exhaust.
    fix the rust and paint it. it will be looking sweet for sure


    This is my other addiction

    the one i was looking at had no dash and shit it in it.. was pretty beat but was only $400 and converted to EFI lol the local junkyards dont have anything that old though and ordering thoses parts online would become very expensive , i wanted to make it a surfer bug though.. maybe one day

    Sweet bug. My friend has a 65 Bug, it's beige, and runs like 12s. I think he's got some crazy 2275 motor in it. Also, another friend has a bug he made into a limo, and I'm pretty sure he swapped in a WRX motor.

    Funny enough, here's a picture I found by Googling it:
