Don't be negative.
It just needs some TLC
Perhaps just the gear itself has become worn and needs to be replaced.
The CVCC were had some awesome technology,(for their time)
IIRC they turned off the alternator to get better FE
Vacuum Nightmare under the hood though.
I have seen several Hondas that had a loose pulley on the end of the crank.
Sometimes you can just replace the pulley.
Sometimes you gotta replace the crank.
Sometimes you can weld a new key-way into the crank and replace the pulley, if you are handy with a Dremel Tool. And not afraid of falling fire. And don't scratch the seal surface. and remember to use a new seal.
All I am saying is,
Don't condemn the car until you find out what the problem is.
Then decide how best to fix said problem.
