Civics from 1978 had points and a coil, not an ignition module. The points are inside the distributor, and the coil is the large cylinder with a fat, sparkplug-type wire leading from one of its ends to the center of the distributor. If you want to get rid of the points, etc, Pertronix makes an electronic ignition that hides inside the distributor. I've got one in my '75 civic, and it's awesome.

Lost ignition keys for newer vehicles can be obtained from the vehicle dealership. Lost keys for a 1978 Honda Accord will require the replacement of the ignition.

It is built into the Fuel Pump Control Module. You can not replace it by itself.

I own a 1978 Honda Express and I weigh 145lbs. Mine tops out at 28mph. Every bike is different, and it also depends on how clean your carb is.

Both front and rear should be 2.0 BAR (or 28-29 lb psi).
