Default 1989 Honda Accord Fuel Filter Location

I have a 1989 Honda Accord which appears to be 'missing'. I changed
the dist. cap and it did nothing. I am going to change plugs wires and
fuel filters but have no idea where they are. I believe it is a
carburated model and I need to know where to find the primary and
secondary fuel filter. It is quite an unusual symptom, because the
engine seems to not be burning all the gas in the cyllinders...ie it
smells of raw gas when you are at the muffler and it's runnging. If
anyone knows where these filters are and has a better diagnosis let me
know.\

On my 1986 the fuel filter is near the tank under the car. You will
need to remove the left rear tire to access the filter. Its not easy
to replace. If you are getting gas in the exhaust, 1) a plug is not
firing 2) the float bowl level is too high. Check the float bowl level
on a carburated car with a flash light. After removing the entire air
filter assembly, you will see a sight glass on the driver side of the
carb. the level should be in the middle. The fuel level is adjustable
from a yellow painted screw on top of the carb. Clock wise lowers the
fuel level. Your choke cold also be stuck closed .... which requires
fixing the choke unloader diaphram. Or the whole dam carb may need
rebuilding. A loose or broken vacumn hose can also cause problems.
Personally I would not bother with the fuel filters, as the symptoms
do not warrent it.

Eh, another multiposting newbie who knows not how to crosspost correctly.

Sorry, but you'll have to see your identical message in
rec.autos.makers.honda for my nuggets of wisdom.

Sounds like you need new plugs, and probably also wires. That will
probably
cure the missing.
