Hello Civic Forum,

Not sure if anyone can help or offer some advice, however....

I have been driving around the world for the last 14 years with my old Honda Civic 1988 model.

I have recently brought the carburettor home to UK and want to get it rebuilt as there is a running issue that maybe related to this part. I am wondering if you may be able to help with this: the smell from the exhaust is strong and unusually rich perhaps, idle can be a problem and it is slow to pick up speed on highway, if gas pedal floored it builds speed very slowly with no noticeable sudden increase.

I am looking for somewhere that can rebuild the carb. I have written to a few places, but the replies so far are that because it is Japanese it is difficult to find parts. I already know this well as I struggled to find the only gasket kit on record with Honda from a dealer in Egypt 4 years ago....

If anyone can help with advice about where I could send it and where I may obtain parts. There is a company called Amayama in Japan that can provide many things, but not everything....

I look forward to hearing from you.

Many thanks,
