13 inch OEM steel wheels

I posted mine for sale on CL with no response. Should I just scrap them? Also, I'm returning a main relay I pulled from the junkyard but can only exchange. Any common wear parts I should stock up on?

WTB PM6 air tube

I have looked a bit on the web with no luck. Just finished a SOHC ZC swap into my old lx that had the D15B2.

Re: 88 lx sedan questions

Finished off the rear suspension this week. I rented the trailing arm bushing tool from this website and it worked nicely. http://www.automotivespecialtytool.net/ Also, installed new OEM brake hoses in the back. My list of remaining items are 1. Wheels(locking lugnuts), tires and alignment 2. Windsh...

Re: Wheels for my grey LX

The wheels fit nicely. I took one to my local Honda dealer parts guy and he verified they are OEM Accessory wheels. Said they list for $180/wheel. Gonna get tires and all wheel alignment next.

Re: Wheels for my grey LX

I contacted the seller and they are not HX wheels but are new Honda OEM Accessory wheels. What are the chances they will fit my car with stock disc/drum brakes and suspension? I don't want to risk shipping cost without 99% certainty. Just looking for something better than my stock steel 13s with ori...

Re: 88 lx sedan questions

It was the sensor. My old one works fine. 3000rpm for 10 minutes and the radiator fan came on. Gauge never went above half way in the driveway.

Cold fast idle is more like 1300.

Exhaust is next.

Re: 88 lx sedan questions

I have a Haynes manual that covers 4G civics in a general sense but some specifics are lacking. To test the circuit I grounded the sensor wire with the ignition in on position. The needle went all the way to "H" which means the circuit is good. Was just curious to test the sending unit itself. I'm j...

Re: 88 lx sedan questions

Fuel leak at filter fixed with OEM filter and washers. I figured the OEM was better but Napa was open and my local dealer was closed. The Napa filter surfaces that mate with the washers were painted and I'm guessing that was the problem. Drove it last night and it ran nicely. However, my temp gauge ...

Re: 88 lx sedan questions

Code 9 fixed. The dumbass(me) who wired it crossed C1 & C2 wires at the ecu. I'm so embarrased.

Will be picking up some OEM crush washers for the fuel filter today hopefully.

Re: 88 lx sedan questions

Thanks again for the advice 2stroke. I started it today and it ran on the first try. However, I have a code 9 (No. 1 Cylinder Position Sensor). According to the manual, I checked resistance between cyl and crank terminals and they check out at ~400 ohm. The second test is terminals to ground and all...

Re: 88 lx sedan questions

Thanks 2 stroke. Hopefully, the link will work for you as I tested it and it worked for me. 1. The cable seems too long where it connects to the securing/adjusting bracket on the intake. I bought a new OEM 1990 SI cable and it installed fine except I had to modify the cable stop on the pedal end int...

Re: 88 lx sedan questions

Hello 4G people, I'm getting really close now. The pin at C1 finally came out and it looks like I bent it enough early on that it was difficult to get out. The front suspension has all new bushings and new tie rod ends. All new engine mounts. New hub bearings and lower ball joints installed by local...
