    I just picked up a 88 crx with a sohc zc engine in it and I need to change out all the gaskets on the valve cover. What gaskets are they and can I pick them up at auto zone or checkers? Thanks....

    If you're talking about the SOHC ZC non-VTEC, all the parts are pretty much the same as the D16A6 (88-91 Si) except the camshaft. Just use an 88-91 CRX Si valve cover gasket.

    alright, you need to look by your distributor...
    the vtec solonoid will be there...
    google it up to see what it looks like...

    do you know what the block is stamped?

    i would suggest you get the D16A6 valve cover, that should work for you..
    its from a 88-91 civic SI

    All I can read on the engine is ZC to the left of the headder. I did a google already on that I dont think I have that solonoid. I will cal for the si gaskets.
