Hello my name is ***** ***** I will be assisting you with all of your vehicle questions today. Give me one moment while I review your question and come back with a answer. Please be aware I do not know your skill level or abilities so I will be asking a lot of questions and in a lot of cases we will respond to each other quite a lot before we find a solution. As far as phone calls are concerned that is the system prompting you, not me, and they do cost more money, I prefer text but in some cases a phone call is required.

So you just need help with finding a rebuild kit ?

Customer reply replied 6 months ago
the ones I see readily available are not clearly stating which carb they are for. I have the side mount (slid-valve) 2- one barrel carbs.
Mechanic for Honda: Mechanic01, ASE Certified Technician replied 6 months ago

that is what im seeing too, you could always break them down, lay out the parts and compare.

I didn't want to spend $50 on a kit, only to find it was for the modified car and not the side carb. They operate completely different and components are nowhere similar.
Mechanic for Honda: Mechanic01, ASE Certified Technician replied 6 months ago

the kits im seeing have the parts laid out for you to see before you purchase though so there would be no guessing

I just heard from my mechanic. You were right...a $45.00 job. THANK YOU!! Your response was received in less than 10 minutes!!

Linda B.USA

Your answers were clear and the diagrams were perfect. Dealer wanted $87 for an hour of labor and even I did it in 15 minutes.

EdUSA

HONDA PLATINUM was great. I really appreciate his help. I was ready to trade my new Honda until he told me to wait until I got 3,000 miles on it and my gas mileage would get much better.

SummerUSA

I took the Power Steering O-Ring service bulletin linked from JustAnswer to my Acura dealer, and not only did they no-charge the o-ring, they also replaced the power steering pump at no cost.

Gary RStevenson Ranch, CA

Wonderful service, prompt, efficient, and accurate. Couldn't have asked for more. I cannot thank you enough for your help.

Mary C.Freshfield, Liverpool, UK

This expert is wonderful. They truly know what they are talking about, and they actually care about you. They really helped put my nerves at ease. Thank you so much!!!!
