I have a 1991 Honda Accord that sliped the timing bel and ate the valves. I replaced the entire engine with one out of a 1992 that was running. Before installing I replaced the timming belts.
During the install I found I had to swap the engin wiring harnes so it would mate to the Car's. This then required I swap the original 91 distributor to the head (91 has an internal coil while 92 had a seperat coil and the wiring harnes has no wires for the seperat coil.)
OK all that having been said, the car turns over, but I get no spark at the plugs. I can smell fuel, so I believe the injectors are being activated.
What I need to know is how to test the distributor and its parts for the 1991. The coil, pickup and ignitor are all inside the cap so so the only outside access are the plug wires and the to connectors (one with 2 connections, the other with 8 connections)
If I could find a willing running 1991 accord, I could mark the distributor, remove it, install my distributor and see if the car starts, if not then somthing in mine is bad, but I have no 1990 or 1991 accords local for me to do that.
Note: I do have the 1992 setup, with the external coil, and it has the same connectors to the distributor, but the coil has 4 connections in a connector that I do not have or know what they do.
