Re: Sei fuel injection

I haven't needed to use them yet, but I picked up a set of 4 remanufactured injectors off eBay https://www.ebay.com/itm/4-OEM-Fuel-Injectors-for-Honda-Accord-Civic-CRX-Prelude-Integra-1-6L-2-0L-2-2L-/253238148885?hash=item3af62b7f15 for less than $50.

Re: Rear brake issue - '85 LTD

Hurray! Got the pistons out. Couldn't get the hydraulics to push them out and air didn't work either. So, went the grease gun route - worked like a charm. Will just have to do extra cleaning on the caliper to make sure all the grease is gone.

Re: Rear brake issue - '85 LTD

Got the pins out, stuck em in a cordless drill and got them down under 6mm. Now I have stuck pistons. Tried hooking up to a brake line - no go. Tried to get them out with air - no go. So now, I went ahead and filled them up with WD-40 to loosen the crud on them. Hopefully that'll work.

Re: Rear brake issue - '85 LTD

Took me a little while, but I got them out. Between WD40, heat, and use of a hammer, they came out. No drill press, but I have sanded them down some. Will prob put them in a drill chuck and do it a little faster. The other issue I had was when I went to replace the rear brake line with an HEL line. ...

steel brake lines

Okay, so I got the HEL lines for my LTD. However, after disconnecting the rear line from the hard line coming from the rear master cylinder, it looks like the old flare nut is shot - so I want to replace the hard line. The question is, what is the diameter of the hard line - 1/4 or 3/16? I can buy e...

Rear brake issue - '85 LTD

Front calipers were an easy rebuild, but when I got to the rear, the hanger pins for the brake pads are stuck (yes, I removed the bracket). Any suggestions on getting them out? At least it's still an available part if I mess one or both up.

Re: Another LTD in the stable

And the saga continues. Decided to test the cruise control to make sure it functioned correctly - almost as soon as I set the cruise the speedo went to '0'. So I figured it was something electronic. Lo and behold, the mechanical part that the electronic sensor bolts to had split at the screw that ho...

Re: Another LTD in the stable

After seeing the little nub left of the air filter wing nut, I shoulda guessed that the PO didn't know there was an air filter.

Re: Another LTD in the stable

Got the new front tire on, but I must not have lined up the tabs right on the speed sensor. It was working until I went to test the cruise - then it went to 0 mph. Guess I'll take it off and put it back on tomorrow. Got the headlight modulator installed - seems like it was easier than the one I did ...

Thanks, that is good to know, and I will check into them. Night vision is my concern. It is very limited with the old lights, and I live north, andin the middle of deer country. Honestly, the difference between the original headlight and a HID light is like night and day. Talk to Cyclemax - they ha...

Re: Another LTD in the stable

The odyssey has begun. First thing I did was rebuild the master cylinder - pads wouldn't release, fixed. Have new tires mounted on rims (just have to swap them out). Spark plugs changed. After the tires will come oil change and timing belts - then I'll feel more comfortable to ride.

Re: Right hand grip removal

If you're not re-using the grip, just take a sharp knife and cut down the length of it. Then peel it open and it should come off easily enough. Worked like a charm. Cut off the foam part and had to cut up the clutch side one to make sure that the plastic I was seeing was part of the grip. Cut that ...

Difference in Manuals?

Is there a big difference between the 1985 and the 1987 Electrical Troubleshooting manuals? I goofed and bought the 1987 instead of the 1985. Was only paying attention to the price difference and forgot to look at the year.

$3800. Huh? What? What year? Fire?
It's an 82 1100i thats had a 4-wheel trike job done and what looks like a car carrier trailer. Gas dripping from two of the carbs is what caught fire. Probably melted some spark plug wires while it was burning.

Re: Opportunity knocking or should I bolt the door?

Mostly stored in a shed over the years. Body looks great as does the leather on the seat. I'd go ahead and single-carb it vs messing with four leaky carbs.
