    I can see why you're hooked.
    Those engines were great to cut your teeth on. Tinker away to your hearts content. Tweak the mixture and timing to get the best power and a nice grey exhaust coating.

    Oh yeah, I was always pulling the carbs off to clean them inside and out, tweak mixtures, balancing them up. This little Civic had a electronic spark ignition module if I remember correctly and not contacts points as other cars of its era had.
    It was quite tatty when I got it but slowly over time I got her back to looking more like she did in her younger ears. I owned her from '91 to '93 so she was a good ten years old at the time.
