I am swapping an OBD1 d15b into my ek coupe which had an OBD2 d15b in it. The plugs coming of the distributor are different then what my wire harness connects into. I was wondering do I need to change the distributor out and if so can I use the one from the OBD2 d15b?

Ok thanks. Im actually converting the car to OBD-1 (i.e. I bought an obd-1 ecu and jumper) so just wasn't sure what to do with the distributor.

im gonna be doing the same conversion on my car soon and was having the same concern. Some guys (like lilryanadamse) replaced the internals so as to keep the stock mounting bolt patterns.
I think this is the most logical way to do.
I have a thing to ask the others though regarding this...Would you still use the stock OBD2 crankshaft position sensor located in the crank area when you swap to OBD1 dizzy internals?

Couldn't you just put the connector from the obd-2 distributor on the odb-1 distributor, that would be basically the same as swapping out the internals of them right?

Yes, either repin the connector, or cut/solder the wires, just make sure to match them all up perfectly. Honda's rarely change wire colors, and I know for a fact that the wiring swap you want to do will work by just matching up the colors.

As far as the CKF sensor goes, that is in another part of the wiring harness, and is NOT that same as the crank sensor in the dizzy. OBD2 computers use the CKP, CYP, and TDC signals from the dizzy, and the CKF from the oil pump. OBD1 and earlier do not use the CKF sensor.
