Nate93b is cool... so far.
Question Wont Start

I have a 1990 Honda Accord lx. It has 252,xxx miles on it. Just had a new alternator, transmission and clutch put in. Last Sunday i was driving it for the first time in a few months and my spedometer started to go on and off. Then later that day my antifreeze started leaking couldnt tell if it was from a hose or a gasket, but the car ran fine didnt over heat and sounded normal. Later that day i go to start it and it wouldnt start. Starter wont turn over no spark and cant push start it. Replaced distributer cap and rotor today no luck. Also when i went to start it i pushed the brake and the spedometer went up to 130 then all the way around and is stuk pointed down. I dont know what to do i cant get the car to start.

Sounds like an electrical short somewhere. Start looking at harnesses for broken wires or for rigged wiring.

Ok lets start from "there's no spark" and you replace the cap but did you replace the coil and since you have a 90 CB I'm guessing its inner coil which will mean that the coil is in the distributer it self so try replacing that because changing the cap and rotor wont do it the main issue is to replace the coil .....cause you never get a spark with a bad coil. I would just get a new distributer its the best way to go n just keep the extra parts ...
Well keep us posted ....
