What do you mean the distributor moves a little? You mean the rotor turns just a little bit? If that is the case and this is a 1.6L engine, then the timing belt is bad. If so, all Honda engines are interference except 3.0L & 3.2 which are Non-interference engines, so there is a chance of the valves being bent.

You need to get the timing to TDC before you just "switch" out a distributor.
