New UK Owner S800 Mk2 Coupe


Dear Members.

I'm the new owner of the late Paul Clements 1968 Red MK2 S800 Coupe after completing the sale today.

It was sad to acquire the car in these circumstances, but I'm a dedicated UK Honda enthusiast, and hope Paul would approve of the new owner.

Many thanks to Wilf Adams for helping during the sale.

My wife and I look forward to meeting members during 2015.

Regards Peter

Hi Peter make sure you keep in touch, so many cars dissapear once they are sold never to be seen again.

Re: New UK Owner S800 Mk2 Coupe


Saw the plea for a bit more forum activity, so thought I would post an update.

Well the car has been laid up over the winter with just a few drives on decent days.

I have just taken it to my friend of many years Garage for a swathe of work as per the list.

It's a good car but does need tlc and a bit of finishing before it's ready for a full season.

1) Full service inc Oil/Filter/brake fluid/coolant change.
2) Check/change gearbox oil.
3) Check change rear axle oil.
4) Full brake check
5) Fit radiator cowling.
6) Find and fit new nut for radiator drain.
7) Fit brake & clutch master cylinder rubber covers.
8) Check clutch plate and fit new rear engine oil seal.
9) Fit new driver’s door lock. Retain old part I have to send it back.
10) Fit new windscreen rubber.
11) Fit all window chrome trims.
12) Fit new headlights and silverstar bulbs.
13) Underbody check, possible exhaust fouling body.
14) Steering wheel and scuttle rattle/play/noise.
15) Fit new passenger seat.
16) Fit floor bungs.
17) Check spark plugs/tappets etc.
18) Fix / replace choke cable.
19) Waxoyl underneath any vulnerable spots/chasiss/ cavities.
20) Rolling road tune and carb setup. (Good luck)
21) MOT

I suspect it's also running rich, so any advice on carb setup much appreciated.

Any comments on the proposed work list? I have sourced all the parts form the usual vendors.

Any recommendations for clutch relining places familiar with S800?

I notice howmanyleft.com says only 52 now taxed in UK and 26 on SORN. Getting very rare.

Car now freshly MOT'd and ready for the season.

Thanks to all the members who helped when I rang scrounging parts and advice.

Eventually fitted new spring diaphragms and friction plate to cure slipping clutch.
