Default Vtec Solenoid Internals

Ok so my new to me GSR engine keeps on surprising me. Ive spent the past week replacing gaskets and components before I swap it into my RS. Like a lot of Vtec engines I noticed oil all around the Solenoid so I ordered the proper gaskets and started to remove it from the the engine. Well to my surprise when I removed the top portion (spool valve I believe ) It had more red rtv than gasket so the prior owner redneck engineered his own gasket. While looking at it I also noticed that it looks to be missing a piece that connects to the rod inside the assembly. So instead of buying a whole new part I was wondering if the part in the listed picture is universal with any other vtec solenoids. If it is I have two pull a parts nearby so I could probably find it.

Engine is from a 95 GSR.
Borrowed the picture from a google search.

So Ill answer my own question... I went to my local pull a part and pulled one from a 92-95 civic and one from a I think a 97 accord. Both fit perfect and are exactly the same.

No problem, Just didn't want this to turn into one of the many dead end threads on HT.
