Maiden voyage

Got the carb rebuilt and installed.

Put in a new brake master cylinder.

Fired up the car (once I hooked up the choke right) and she started and ran. Has a vacuum leak so the car won't idle on it own.

Took it out for a spin around the block and it was a hoot. Revs nicely once it get above 3000 rpm.

Drove it 6 blocks and parked it back in the garage.

Evening was rolling in so the civic goes back in the garage along side its younger sister (the '89) for the night.

Will get the car off to the shop for them to fine tune the carb/idle and get it running smooth.
