    Its an OBDII distributor. It sounds like when you did the swap the stock distributor was retained. I'd buy a stock OBDI distributor for the sol and splice the wires back.

    Ummm.... ok. I have a 93 and its right on my engine. Also every other honda that I've seen besides the new ones mount on the engine. Actually any car with a distributor that I've seen has it mounted on the engine. Do you know what a distributor is? Its the little thing on the engine that is spun by the engine that spins the little dohicky that makes the sparks...
