    I just finish swapping a H22A into my 1995 Accord too. The only mounts I had to replace were the front mount, and the left-side mount. I needed to replace the left-side mount, so the transmission would sit properly. Also, depending on the condiition of your mounts. You may need to replace all of them.

    Also, your car is OBD1, and if your H22A (JDM) motor is OBD1 (92-96), then you'll be fine.

    Yeah. The mounts are different in 94-95 Accords from the 90-93 Accords.

    I did a F22A1>F22B1 swap recently. The driver's side mount was very different. A 92 Accord mount slaps right on a H22A, no mods. Sooooo, I believe you could just use an older Accord mount on the H22A. I did. They probably don't cost much from the junkyard. As for the wear, I wouldn't worry about it much. My 92 Accord had 216k on the F22 before the swap. I reused the mounts with no ill effects. Buy a new dogbone thrust mount(exhaust side). Those hold the motor under torque, and wear out much sooner. I bought a replacement off of Ebay for somewhat cheap. ;)

    I did this swap, and didn't replace any mounts. The driver's side mount needs to be modified to make it work, but that's about it.

    That's the mount I was talking about. I'm pretty sure you could just use a 90-93 F22 driver's side mount. There's a bit of difference between the F22A and F22B1, including that mount.

    Wow, wish I had known that when I did my swap. I also wish that I had read your post thoroughly before opening my yap. :)

    Bah, I've been corrected by you many a time:)

    I didn't know myself before that 95 to 92 swap, since the F22A mount worked perfectly in my 92 Accord attached to the H22A. I swear I looked all over for this mount to Frankenstein when I did the H22A swap, but didn't find it. Didn't expect a problem with a F22B1 in a 92 Accord, but I had to modify the driver's side mount. Even the part that bolts to the engine itself is different, and can't be moved over.

    So all I need is the driver side mount off a 90-93 accord to complete the swap correct

    I believe so. I have not tested this theory, but a used mount cannot cost much.

    I REALLY honestly think that a 90-93 mount will work perfectly in a 94-95 Accord H22 swap.

    If you can't find a mount for cheap, I'll sell you mine for a small fee plus shipping. I have my H22 out of my old car, and I bought a different 92 Accord. So, I of course already have a replacement mount when I get around to the swap.

    I know Honda rips you off on small things.

    Easy on the CAPS LOCK kiddo!!!!











    j/k :p


    Congratulations, and welcome to the club(mostly cool people).

    If that mount works out for you, I'd still be interested in the 95 mount. Definitely come back and let us know for sure if the 90-93 mount works in your car without modification.

    I believe that is exactly what you want.

    I am just guessing on this...........but I believe that all of the engine packages were designed to fit the same chassis mounting locations for the F and H series engines. However, the 94-95 accord mounts were shaped differently, and yet land in the same place. Basically, I believe if you get the right mount for the engine that you are installing, it should go smoothly.

    IE: I'd like your 95 mount for the F22B1 that I put into my friends 92 Accord. The stud side fit right on, and lined the mount up perfectly to the chassis, but the threaded side is airborne. I'd rather just try the correct mount, but have no 95's in my local junkyards.

    I do have two extra 92 mounts........
