I bought this car off its original owner for 400$ after it sat parked for 5 years with 273k miles on it and got to work rebuilding the upper half of the engine. My first introduction to hondas in general and I am impressed at the simplicity and reliability.
Good luck with work on it! I will be happy to follow this thread
I've got only good memories with my daily "beater" EC8. I've bought them for 100$ five years ago... Lot of fun, good d13b2 engine (later I've installed dual carb from d14a1 including d14a1 camshaft)... Finally car was sold which I greatly regret.
Nice man, I see that you had to re-wire/place a new horn in the engine bay... let me know what you did because in my CRX, the horn stays on when i plug the fuse in the fuse box within the engine bay... :-|
