Re: Engine Bay Photo Main PS Hose Routing

Sorry, I don't have any pics of that, but here's a drawing from hondapartsnow.com. It shows the routing and clamps fairly well and hopefully answers your question. Click on the magnifying glass in...

Re: engine swap question.

That's true. I've bought two b20a's in the past, but the last one was in 2010. I haven't seen one around here for several years, but I have seen them listed on ebay from time to time. Are you...

Re: engine swap question.

Everything will bolt right up if that's what you're asking. You'll also need the fuel injected exhaust manifold. From everything I've read, the bottom end on the JDM b20a carb'd engine is the same...

Re: Overheating Issue Discovered - Not Good News :(

I'm pretty sure the UK didn't get the b21. Seems like I read somewhere that only N. American and JDM markets had that as an engine option. Which would explain why your 1990 FSM doesn't cover the...

Re: Overheating Issue Discovered - Not Good News :(

To add to what Les said, you might also want to consider replacing the cam seals and front crank seal as well as the timing belt tensioner while you're in there. It would suck to have to pull the...

Re: Overheating Issue Discovered - Not Good News :(

Are you sure about that? The 1990 manual (US version) should cover the b20a3, b20a5, and b21a1 engines since they were all available that year.

Re: HOSE REPLACEMENT WOES

The final goal is to replace the coolant hoses which go to the oil cooler. The method you choose in order to accomplish that goal is up to you. In other words, if you can reach up there and get the...

Re: OEM Turn Signal Lamp Wiring Connector

I'm assuming this is for an 88 Prelude. The turn signals and connectors are different 88/89 vs 90/91 model years. The only suggestion I have for you is to look for people parting out their 88/89,...

Re: Fuel Pump Relay

I'd try re-soldering your main relay before you spend money on a new one. I've had success with this method. Here's a write-up describing the process...

Re: HOSE REPLACEMENT WOES

Yeah, that's not a fun job. Sorry I wasn't here to reply to your question, but it sounds like you figured it out on your own. Yeah, remove the center nut to remove the oil coller. Oh, and you're...

Re: 13622-PK2-010 PLATE, TIMING BELT GUIDE I can't find this part

I don't see why he would be looking for another one if it wasn't damaged in some way. But since he hasn't returned he probably found the part somewhere. I've heard of putting those on backwards and...

Re: 13622-PK2-010 PLATE, TIMING BELT GUIDE I can't find this part

It's a discontinued part, so if you're looking for a new part you probably won't find it. You will be perfectly fine with a used part though. Junkyards, ebay, car-part.com for starters. You can...

Re: LOW IDLE AFTER WARM UP

Search this forum and the other forum as well on testing the TPS. I haven't had to do that before, but I remember reading several threads over the years on how to adjust them based on voltage...

Re: LOW IDLE AFTER WARM UP

I'd be more suspicious of the TPS than the TB, but to answer your question, I've read that a mid-90's Acura Vigor throttle body bolts right on. Seems strange that a 5 cylinder TB would fit our...

Re: 1990 idles is erratic

Have you done any work on your car recently? One of the main causes of a bouncy idle is air in the cooling system. You could try bleeding the coolant. Here is a handy link that talks about the...

Re: LOW IDLE AFTER WARM UP

You want to adjust the idle with the engine fully warmed up. I'm not sure what you mean when you say "after warmed up is basic 770", then you say "But when it's really warmed up". What are you...

Re: POPPING AND NOT STARTING

First off, yes I do have a spare b20a exhaust cam and sprocket. Let me know if you still need it.

As far as the cam interchangeability goes, you can use a b21a1 exhaust cam with no issues. ...

Re: POPPING AND NOT STARTING

Oh wow, yeah that would make it run like crap. In fact I'm surprised it even ran at all. Hopefully you didn't bend any valves. I'm wondering how the compression tested good too.

Re: POPPING AND NOT STARTING

I wouldn't run the engine if it's only firing on 2 or 3 cylinders. Besides that, you want to test compression when the engine is cold. I'm curious to hear if the cyl sensor makes a difference.

Re: POPPING AND NOT STARTING

Glad to hear you're making progress. Sounds like you have decent compression. I'd like to see those two numbers be a little closer together but it's within acceptable parameters. Had you tried...

Re: POPPING AND NOT STARTING

Kind of makes me wonder if you have more than one issue here since it's not popping at all anymore. Hopefully not. The starter fluid is a good idea. If you get it to fire with the ether then...

Re: POPPING AND NOT STARTING

Only time I've seen something like that is when the ignition timing is way off. Make sure the distributor is not installed 180 degrees off (yes it's possible to do that). Also verify the spark plug...
