Will the OEM mount fit?

Would a F22 bracket work? Is it any different?

I know a lot of people just do an H2B/F2B swap to eliminate most of the headache. Use B/D series mounts, the B trans, B linkage, B axles, B clutch. The only part that's a hassle is the header.

this has nothing to do with the trans. even if i was going f2b id still be having this issue.

Well than ignore the comment and move on

But on a serious note, i thought you had to use H mounts. Could be wrong though

Actually, it does. H2B tilts the motor forward so it sits up like a B/D series instead of being tilted back as the F and H series do normally. When you do this, you use the B series mounts. This is why I asked.

I have somewhat of an interest in the weird things Honda did and solutions to these odd issues that arise.

Why not just use that H22 bracket you have on the F23 block...?

got it figured out, 90-93 accord bracket bolts right up, clears the cam gear, and takes the hmount.
