First off sorry for the novel but this mount has been crooked since I got the car and I can't get it straight pics at end.

So I bought the car on ebaY, already swapped. I suspect it either had a B-series or a boosted D because the front cross-member was hacked to shit and the front motor mount had been moved to the drivers side. It was in generally bad condition when I got it. I drove it home from TN to MD with ridiculous brake fade, and almost no clutch pressure. Not to mention it has serious acceleration problems. After I got home I replaced the dizzy, the wires and plugs, the cap and rotor, put a Optima Yellow top battery in it, adjusted the idle and timing, and adjusted the clutch. Ever since it's been running well. So then my next problem was the engine torquing broke the welds he did on the hacked cross-member to hold the front mount. I bought, painted, and installed a new cross-member and had to get all new mounts because the old ones were toasted. The rubber center on the front mount wasn't even connected anymore. The tranny mount wasn't connected to anything. The only mount that looked good was the after market one on the drivers side. I filled the new OEM mounts with 3M windo-weld super fast urethane and they're rock solid sickness. However when I reinstalled the mounts the motor was still crooked. Any clue what I'm missing. I CANNOT get this to line up. The motor doesn't even line up with the mounting location. I don't know if I have the wrong axles or what. I loosened them all up all the way and I cannot get the motor that far forward on that side. I have no issues with driveability, no wheel hop on hard take-offs even if they're spinning. But I'm worried about that one little bolt holding up the drivers side of my engine. My buddy says to leave it if I'm not having problems, he thinks my axle will drop if I move it that much. I've been on her for like 2 weeks and I think you guys know more about these imports than his dometic loving ass LOL. Here's a pic of my situation.

Totally straight chasis and frame. 91 Civic Si, 95 Si motor and tranny (D16Z6) I believe it should bolt right up, but no luck.

And no the base is in the original spot I think. 99.9% sure.

When I put urethane insert mounts I had to:

Loose the mount from base...
Raise the engine using a lifter (or jack with wood piece from Underneath ) RAISE just a bit to work with.. be carefull not to broke anything
insert the mount (in your case bolt the mount to engine)
then loose down to the mount base...

TIP: I used a large Paint scratcher tool lubed in oil as a large "slider" into the mount base

I did the jack with wood under the oil pan method, but when I lifted it I couldn't get the motor to come forward enough to get the mount to the bracket it bolts into. I'm gonna borrow my buddy's cherry picker and just see if that helps unless somebody has a better idea. Any and ALL tips are appreciated.

it is a 92 -95 mount, its a 95 motor I have a 91 mount but the bolts are at an angle to the side of the head, these bolts are parallel to the side.

The part of my engine the mount bolts to is different than yours. What's up with tha. Every d-series I see has that style of bolt pattern but mine:hammer: Check it out. Unless you are syaing that this part is merely bolted onto the engine. If so where are these bolt and where do I get the right one?








all mounts are in original location, nothing has been moved 100% sure.

Naw, I bought the rear , the tranny, and the front myself, and they are all definitally right. All of my buddies with EF's have that diagonal bolt pattern mount not the parallel one I have. I think Chiovnidca hit it on the head, I just need info on how to getr that part off and get the EF one on.

Both of those mounts are for a 92 up civic. You need the ones for an 88-91. (like in my pic posted above)

Under the timing cover.
Okay, I'm retarded. You ARE the man. My lowly rep is on it's way to your doorstep. Of all the local "Honda Guys" nobody knew why mine was different than theirs.:hammer:
