The dealerships are in the business of selling new cars, not helping us keep the old ones going. When I got a new motor for my 1986 Accord, a trusted co-worker who was a fan of 1950's Chevys recommended a shop. He had both used the shop and noticed the shop replacing an engine on an 80s vintage Toyota Corolla the week before. The mechanics at the shop found the replacement engine.

Thank you all for you help on this. I will have to check out the H series motor from the new accords.
