Question about 1990 Honda Prelude

1 Answer

I am doing a carberator rebuild kit on a 1990 honda prelude 2.0 s (with two single barrell carbs) and do not know what I should put for the specs of the float bowl or air to fuel ratio. Ive tried calling even mechanics and they have all been unable to help. If anyone can help it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

Is it a good idea to rebuild your carb after rebuilding your motor


Most certainly it is. It should just go along with the rebuild regardless if it is ready or not.

What lbs do I tighten the head bolts to on my 1990 Honda prelude SI 2.1L DOHC and in what order do I tighten them?


Go inside the local Autozone and ask for the cylinder head torque specs. They will look it up and print it out for you. It will contain the torque specifications as well as the sequences. Happy torquing.

How to rebuild a 1987 plymouth gran fury 2 barrel carburetor


First, you will need to get a rebuild kit for it. This contains gaskets and other bits that wear and need replacing on occasion. There will be a number on a tag or the carb body that the parts store will need to get the right kit. There's no point in trying to reuse the old gaskets, if you are going to try that, then don't waste your time rebuilding.

The kit will contain a sheet of paper whjich will give you an exploded diagram of all the parts in your carburator and where they belong. there will also be information on various settings for idle, choke, etc. Don't lose these sheets.

When you start to disassemble the carb, keep the old gaskets to compare with new ones. When you remove the idle screws, turn them in until they stop. Be gentle when you do this and count the number of turns. Write that number down, so when you put it back together you know where the idle setting is supposed to be. There will be extra gaskets in the kit and they will all be different. You must replace with exactly the same as what you took off. Also pay very close attention the how the choke linkage comes apart. It will go together more than 1 way so you can get it wrong. This will make the car act up or maybe not even start.

Soak the carb in a good quality cleaner and make sure everything is clean and all the lines are open before you start to reassemble it.Use your diagrams to make sure you put everthing back where it belongs, replacing with new parts when possible. Be very careful with the float measurement, it must be exact, close won't work.

This is going to take you several hours, so don't be in a rush.

I have fuel pouring out my air bleed valve of my left carb barrel and my inner vent solenoid valve on my right carb barrel. At one time my car was flooding out I found one of my vacuum lines was blocked,...


This is usually caused by a stuck float valve. Tap on the carb with a small hammer or screwdriver at the fuel inlet area and the valve may reseat. I usually recommend rebuilding the carb after this happens to prevent a reoccurrence.

Carburetor flooding out of the air filter side of the dual carburetors on my 1990 honda prelude. will only happen after its been runnin for a bit. idle is not perfect and may have spmething to do with it....


This sounds like a float problem. The carbs have a fuel chamber each and the amount of fuel in the chambers is controlled by a plastic float and needle valve. Carb will require stripping and cleaning and float adjusted. Not a job for DIY i'm afraid

New carberater and a mechanic needed!


Even if you do it yourself you need to adjust it.I would get another mechanic to look at it also.Have you tried cleaners? 1 type you add to the gas the other you remove the air bonet and spray into the top of carb while running (have someone press on the gas lightly so you don't stall.Have you tried to increase the idle via the adjusting screw? has the auto choke been tested..adjusted? Good Luck.

How do I identify the make of my 2-barrel carb -


The OEM carb on this model was Motorcraft, and you can get the rebuild kit from Ford or you can look up the model number either in Chilton's manual for that car, or maybe find another (kinda hard nowadays) carb in a junkyard and maybe it still has the tag. You can also research the specs for that motor on a web page of Ford or 2nd party auto parts dealers. I'd bet most mechanics over 40 years old could start you off in the right direction, too.
