JA: Sometimes things that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix with a Honda. The Honda Mechanic I'm going to connect you with knows all the tricks and shortcuts. Are you hoping to fix this yourself?
Customer: absolutley
JA: Great! What have you tried so far?
Customer: only replaced the fuel filter on the firewall i did struggle to get the bajo bolts to seal its hard to find the washers
JA: Is there anything else the Honda Mechanic should be aware of about your Honda?
Customer: its an 87 with 189000 on it i pulled the head last year on account of a broken cam but has been running great after that
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Honda Mechanic about your situation and then connect you two.

Hello, my name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I have noticed that your question was not getting a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.

The problem you are describing sounds very much like you have a fuel pressure problem even if you have fuel at the filter. You need to start with installing a fuel pressure gauge and monitoring the actual fuel pressure while the problem is occurring. Normal fuel pressure on a properly operating pump should be right at 35 to 37 PSI. Check this and post back with the results and we can work from there.
