Default Carburettors

Does anyone know which type of carburettors were used on early/mid 90's civics?

Is there a good website that features these with details of jetting/tuning parts?

Thanks

Malcolm

I am with Paul the Jap carbs are a pain. But they are fairly cheap to rebuild. I bought my rebuild kit from napa for 25. Napa had the only kit that was more than just the gaskets. I also ended up taking a couple of parts of an extra carb I had.
If you do it go slow. There should be an exploded veiw of your carb in the rebuild kit with every thing numbered. Use that picture. Follow the steps 1 through what ever. Because there are so many peices it helps to tape all the old parts on to a peice of paper, as you break down, and lable the peices with a pen using the numers given on the exploded veiw from the rebuild kit. Then put it back together in reverse order replacing with new stuff as you go.

My carb had a number on the bottom side, towards teh back (fire wall). I couldn't see the number until the carb was out. I think it was a four digit/alpha number?

Finally got round to doing the strip/clean/rebuild. Wasn't as bad as I feared and certainly the old gasket was well past its useful life.

There must be five or six vacuums which all appeared to be intact so the thing went back on and the engine runs (maybe a little better?), but I still have the cutting problem.

I'm now wondering what the small solenoid plunger does? I do not have wiring details so am not sure if its energised continuously or intermittently. I wondered if a bare wire shorting to earth maybe the problem. Any ideas?
