    Is there any remains of ECU control on the engine at all or simple dizzy / points ?

    Other thing is that often the ignition switch provides full 12v to the coil when cranking but drops back using a ballast resistor in run. Check there is volts on the coil in run position think it is around 8-10 volts of course load will determine actual voltage.

    Default It lives

    It's been a while since I looked at getting the car to run but it got the better of me today. Out with the distributor for a thorough going over & decided to get a new cap although the one fitted looks OK. Although the coil tests OK with the multi meter I decided to get it tested by an auto electrician but then noticed a small sign that had been covered by the clamp .... "MUST USE A RESISTOR". In the box of tricks that came with the car was a resistor which I fitted.

    Crank it over and the bloody thing ran ... terribly and only at idle revs but it was going. Give it fuel and it dies so there's a carburetor problem. I always had concerns about the bike carbies and a pair of 40 DCOE Webers came up on Ebay today so I bit the bullet & pick them up tomorrow.

    Hopefully the jetting is close as the carbs came off a similar Toyota 1.6 engine so after fitting repair kits I'm hoping that the Webers are the answer. I'll let you know.

    You wont look back, they are a bit of work to get set up properly but well worth it.

    Hard to beat the classic look of webers. Definitely worth the effort.

    It's taken forever but this engine is now running beautifully. The Webers were a good starting point as they came off a going 1.6 Toyota motor but the Honda carbs are an unknown. Once knowing that fuel was sorted I needed to look at spark so Ebay came good with an electronic distributor module & non resister type coil. First hit of the starter and it roared in to life.

    Now I know the sparks are OK I'm going to sort those Honda carbs.
