Where is the throttle position sensor on a 1987 Honda accord?

Its on the throttle body, back side (firewall side). Its on the passenger side of the car, where the plastic intake from the air filter hooks on to the aluminum part. Mine has a gold finish, and is a small round 'can' shape. Here is the fun part, it is riveted on to the throttle body, and is not intended for 'backyard' replacement. I haven't been able to find one for sale (haven't checked with the dealer yet), the aftermarket parts stores tell me I need to buy the entire throttle body, not just the sensor. Its also been referred to as a throttle angle sensor. When I had my 87 Honda in for service for a different problem, they said my PGM-FI light was on because of a bad throttle position sensor. I am still driving it howerver. I notice it stumbles a little on acceleration, perhaps this is why, I don't know. I found a used throttle body on the internet for $154. I don't know yet if that includes the throttle position sensor or not.

The knock sensor on a Chevy Celebrity 2.8 L engine from 1987 thru 1990 is located on the back side of the engine(next to the firewall) below the exhaust manifold. There are actually two sensors there, one is the knock sensor, the other is the crankshaft position sensor. The knock sensor is threaded into the block with a pipe thread, the crankshaft position sensor is held in with a 10 mm screw and is near the center of the block. They are both accessible with the engine in the car, but they are a bit of a pain to get to.l
