    Shouldn't have been, if it was for a B16A, I'm pretty sure the housing for the thermostat and all the parts are the same. Anyway I just used an OEM one.

    it was probably for the b16b, which is more like the ITR than the b16a...

    i know the spoon thermoswitch is made for 92 + b-series motors and inline four told me it does not fit the b16a, i talked it over with some mechanics i know at a local honda/acura dealership and i have looked at many engine diagrams and we have come to the conclusion that the switch from a 1991 integra ls/rs/gs b18a1 can be used. The thermoswitch is located in the same place which is the left side of the engine block and they are the same size and the connector is the same so i ordered one and i should have it in a day or two i will confirm if it is the right one.

    it was already stated in this thread that the spoon thermo switch does not fit on the b16a it is for newer versions of the b-series motors

    No it is the same. 1st gen, 2nd gen, they didn't resize the thermostat, housing, fitting or whatever.

    well it is not located on the thermostat housing, the switch is located on the left front side of the block i do believe there is a difference. I talked to the guys and inlinefour and they told me there was a difference and when i put my new one on from the 91 b18a1 it fit and i looked at the one made for the newer del sols and they where different.
