Auto zone has a product RXP in a orange bottle that is the strongest product for Carbs that I have ever used,I think itís better than Seafoam, itís a small bottle but stout,it cleaned up my 1500 after setting for a while.

^This is THE notorious 90-deg vacuum hose that fails... It operates the Timing Advance. Easy fix, and you can use Stock tubing (rather than Honda Part) so long as you put a nice bend in it.

Gas millage 38 to 44 mpg on my 97 with 96,000 miles just depends on how far you twist the grip ! 55 to 60 mph works bout the best.
