Hello, I'm sorry that it took so long for me to get back to you.
Autozone doesn't do the engine check light test here anymore, so, I went ahead and bought the little scanner. It's a cheap one, but it did tell me that it was a P0118 trouble and it allowed me to clear it.
I also look at a friends 1991 Honda today and his distributor had holes that were oval, which allows him to adjust the timing, where as mine has holes that are just slightly larger than the bolt that goes thru them. Meaning that there is no way for me to adjust it back and forth.
I was told that I can't adjust the valves, so no I haven't pulled the valve cover off to check them. During idle it sounds fine, it's not until I raise the rpm's up that I can hear them and I do mean hear them, until I get up to about 55 or 60 mph. In other words I hear them ALL of the time, when I'm in town and driving around. It sounds like they're not getting enough oil to me.
