Which dizzy to order for F22B?

So I went to autozone to pick up a dizzy and when I asked for a 92 accord dizzy, it didn't fit. When I asked for a 92 prelude dizzy, it didn't fit. It's the same as the accord dizzy. What do I do? The ones that autozone carries has a triangular mounting set up. The one on my JDM F22B is triangular but offset. Anyone know what I need to order for the JDM F22B???

Re: Which dizzy to order for F22B?

Blah I can't find anything even remotely reliable for a resource. I swapped a JDM F22B into my prelude and it was running fine. The JDM F22B Distributor has Internal Coil and the F22A1 that WAS in it had an external coil. --- My car has no spark and ran fine for 6 months. The connector from the harness for the external coil has a 30amp fuse in the yellow/black prongs to complete the connection and the JDM F22B Dizzy has been doing fine. I drove to parts store the other day and it was running fine. I came back outside to leave the part store and my car would just turn over and not catch. It tried to catch maybe 3 times and now it just rolls over and over..

Re: Which dizzy to order for F22B?

So I've been comparing the H23 Distributor to the F22B JDM dizzy and there are some differences. The H23 depends on an external coil. The F22B is internal. Therefore the 4p connector that would have gone to the coil has been jumped; connecting the YELLOW IGN wire to the BLACK/YELLOW wire. This completes the circuit and gives power to the internal coil of the F22B JDM Dizzy. I am having trouble diagnosing the dizzy for this very reason.

The H23 Dizzy test procedure asks me to check for voltage between black/yellow wire and chassis ground. There is voltage; only if the previous 4p connector has been jumped. So we are good there. It says if there wasn't voltage to check the black.yellow wire from the coil to icm. No need to check because I have voltage.

Next step if voltage is good to the yellow/black wire is to check voltage between the Green wire and Chassis ground. Here's where I am stumped.

The Green wire on the H23 dizzy runs to a different icm connector to that of the f22b jdm dizzy. Does this matter? Should I still have voltage to the green wire of the f22b dizzy? If the previous question's answer is yes, then I should have to look into replacing the coil and everything should be dandy. If the answer is no, I am stumped stumped stumped.

The green wire would normally run to the external ignition coil of the h23a motor. On the F22b Dizzy, the green wire just runs to the engine harness and I have no idea where it goes from there. On the F22b dizzy, the black/yellow wire on the dizzy side is spliced to hit the coil AND the ICM internally. There's also a mystery yellow/green wire that runs from COIL to ICM as well, internally.

From my tests, I am leaning towards the coil but I don't want to go and order one and find out that it isn't the problem.

CAN ANYONE GIVE ME SOME INPUT. I'M STUCK!!!

Re: Which dizzy to order for F22B?

I also forgot to mention that upon the initial ignition failure, I found that the battery main ground cable had come loose from the transmission bracket that it was mounted to. I think I lost a nut somewhere driving and it was loose. I did remount it to the front clip. Could this be causing my problem?

I just replaced the ICM with no progress. Re-installed the F22b Dizzy and it still just turns over. I think I'll replace the coil next. If that doesn't do it then I'm stuck. I'll probably let an ASE certified tech handle it. Electrical is not my ballpark. Where's lilmisprelude when you need her??? :((((

Re: Which dizzy to order for F22B?

So it turns out that it was in fact the ignition coil. The japanese ASE master mechanic fixing my car comes HIGHLY recommended. Turns out that the hack job wiring set up under my steering column contributed to frying my 60k mi JDM F22B Distributor (FTW?). So he's rewiring everything and replacing the ignition coil. I used to be able to use my washer fluid switch as a kill switch for the motor. BYE BYE electrical gremlins! All at a reasonable price too. $110 for the coil (not so reasonable) $45 diagnostics fee and $250 to fix the hack job wiring.

By the time I would have towed this thing back to my apartment complex and fixed the coil for $24.99 on ebay, it would have run me about $100 if you think gas, tow dolly rental and the coil it self. I also would have been stuck with the hack job wiring and fried another coil probably. So needless to say I am excited to have someone with as much experience and knowledge as this guy does working on my car at a good price. The man has wiring diagrams for every honda/acura on the road manufactured from 84 to 2009. He laughed when I questioned his knowledge of the F22B JDM DOHC and I loved it.

Heres to high hopes and another lude back on the road soon! :::::::BLUNT::::::::

Re: Which dizzy to order for F22B?

I have a JDM f22b dohc in my 92 lude and it has an external coil, if I am reading this thread correctly shouldn't my distrubutor have an internal coil? I know it's the h23 distributor because when I replaced the icm I bought the one for the American dohc engine which was the h23 if I am correct.
