    I have a 89 crx with a 95 b-18a motor swap. It's integra obd1 wiring harness inside and out. Got the car from step son ran when he got it! But decided to take it all apart I put it all back together making sure everything is right! I get spark i get fuel! But still won't start! Tried pretty much everything what else can it

    Fuel Spark Compression. If you have all of those check the timing belt is indeed not broken. dilbeckskate is correct about the thermostat housing ground-- this is for the ECU.
    You say you have fuel and spark so main relay SHOULD be good. Distributor IGNITIOR should also be good IF you truely are getting spark.

    Here's a list to check. battery, starter, clutch switch, main relay, ignition switch, ground wire to transmission. My problem turned out to be a bad transmission ground. It looks fine when you look at it but it will go bad too. I spent a shit load of money replacing, starters, distributors, spark plugs, wires and main relays. My crx was down for 8 months. I thought the engine was locked up and almost bought another one. I tried one last thing and it started up. I added an extra ground wire. I bolted one end to the top of the starter and the other to the chassis, and it started.
