Hello, I've been looking for an answer for you, and have unfortunately been unable to find one. I would highly recommend purchasing a service manual on a place such as eBay. They are not expensive and come up pretty frequently.

I know on a 1990 Accord there is a plug over the idle speed adjustment. You can pop it out with a small screwdriver then do the adjustment. You don't have to replace it. It is located on the passenger side of the injector housing or control body. Stand just behind your right front wheel, lean under the hood and you should see it. The plug is about 3/8" diameter.
