I have a 1987 Honda civic 1.5 l

(1990 Honda Civic)
in Norfolk, VA on May 24, 2017
I am having trouble with the carburetor of my car. I sent the carburetor to a factory to fix it. I got the carburetor back from the factory. I do not know what to connect the fuel cut off solenoid to because I can not find the guy who took off the carburetor. The solenoid has 2 wires and I think it connects to a thing that has 1 wire. I do not know what the thing connects to. The wire of the solenoid goes to the left of the engine if I am facing the engine from the front. I think the thing connects to a wire and this wire connects to the computer and oxygen sensor. I tried start the car when the solenoid was not connected to any thing. The car started but the idle was about 6000. I thought the car would not start if the solenoid was not connected to the car. Thank you for any answers. Kurt Stocklmeir

Hi Kurt,
I remember asking these same sorts of questions, so I empathize, but I'll be blunt. There is nothing to be done with the wiring loom without hands-on inspection of the vehicle.
There are 2 ways to solve this: contacting a professional, or getting the service manual, identifying the origins of all associated wires in that circuit, and tracking them to ensure the harness is intact. This really will solve the issue, and give you a heightened awareness of what is what.
If you have trouble reading the schematics, look around for tutorials online. There are plenty of them.
