Default 89 Civic help

Ok, My friend has a 89 civic. it has the 1.6 liter engine in it. The timing belt slip and bent the valves. The engine has almost 300,000 miles on it. I am having a hard time finding a replacement up here in michigan. So i was wondering if anyone knows of some websites were i could buy a used motor or if anyone has one. I was also wondering if any other engine could fit in there with a moderate amount of work.

nippon-motors.com has some pretty reasonable priced motors for sale. I would suggest looking at a swap. You could pick up a good d16z6 or a ZC motor real cheap. Thats just my suggestion though. Good look on finding a motor.

So how easy is it to swap a different honda engine in? Do some of them use the same mounts?

LikeHailchristian said if you have the 1.6 civic then you dont have to rewire for mpfi. That is the best part. See in my situation I have to rewire for everything. But I would still go with the ZC because with all those other swaps you gotta buy axles ecu motor mounts tranny and it doesn't just bolt in, which I think is the best part of the ZC. You gotta look at it this way because a ZC on average puts out bout 130 hp and the b16 160. So good luck.
