first off about 1/2 the parts are not discontinued, (mr. honda's dream was canceled, after his death.)
find a mech that can fix parts, many can't.
or shop that can do old classic cars. they CAN.
or buy a new assembly. (NOS> new old stock)
or read the FSM on this topic.???? read how to adjust it.........

there are no permanent fixes, all are temporary, GRIN !

here are the parts.
you can look.

Oops anyhow i just posted the same question .our problem starts by putting the hood holder rod next to the headlight instead of next to the battery when we close our hood then our next problem is we turn our lights on well the hood holder rod gets in a bind when it tries to open .soo the short of it is that it gets bent so no guarantee adjusting it will work .that being said this process should work perfect on the drivers side .for the passengers side it just depends how many times it was put on the wrong side and tried to turn on the lights and how badly the mechanism was bent!!!!!!!

Sounds like the fuel pump may be going out. I'd have it checked.

That's usually a sign of a bad ground somewhere.
