does it have a part number stamped onto it? if so, you can try searching their website for that number and see what comes back?

IM thinking this is for 96-00 sohc's due to the realtion of the keylocation compared to the tdc marks.

If it is a SOHC cam gear, with the round holes its a 88-95 cam gear. If it was a 96-00 it would be slotted like this one

I'd go with PEIKU he's right, cam gear all fit 88-2000 civic, Soccerking your wrong because its only the CAMSHAFT that makes it off a tooth when u install a D16Y8 96+ cam into a 92-95 Civic motor thats what makes it different

Well, while a cam gear might FIT all 88-00 civic's, the 96-00 cam key sits in a different position than the 88-95 cam gear. Its timed 3.7 degrees differently.

So technically, no, they are not the same.

Exactly...I have a Z6 cam and cam gear in my Y8...there are quite a few topics on this if you want to know more.

i have read that for the y8,
the only gear that is truly accurate is the aem gear.

which would be a fact that would lead one to believe that NOT all sohc gears are the same.
