    Okay, I have a '89 hond civic hatch 1.5l D15B2 Dual point injected. I took the distributor off to replace the O ring off and I ran into a mess. So I took it into auto zone / oriellys and they both said its missing parts and it has too much play ect then when they looked it up it wasnt even my distributor... Ill post pics In a few mins. PLEASE HELP!

    no, they are all internal on the EF. buying a junk yard distributor is not the best idea though... distributors on hondas are sorta like spark plugs... sure you can throw in some old ones, and maybe they'll work. but for a little bit more money, you can have a new one, with a guarantee. not getting stranded somewhere is more important to me than saving $40.
