It is the same set up they just show a different picture in the diagram for the cam sprocket. Yours even has the pointer timing mark in the bottom left like the diagram shows. I just did a head job on a 1997 Honda Civic same engine a couple of days ago and used this same diagram to set the time. Engine runs great.
