86 4wd engine swap

Hey everyone. I have an 86 4wd with the 6sp tranny, and the engine is on her last leg. Anyways, I've done some searching and can't find any solid answers on engine swap compatibility. Was wondering if all carburetor'd E series would drop in while keeping 4wd? I saw a few threads mentioning the ZC was a direct bolt on to the 3rd gens. Again, can I swap a ZC and keep 4wd? If anyone here could steer me in the right direction, or knows the answers it would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Dane

    ZC will be your best bet and not much info on here. If no one else responds, try redpepperracing.com
  • Thanks, found a bit on redpepper, but not as much as I'd like. Will keep everyone posted, and do a write-up if I decide to try and swap her.
  • How about bringing life to an old thread? :)
    I'm about to buy a -86 with a 1,5l engine, will a ZC swap be possible and still keep 4wd?
  • Is redpepperracing still alive? It was the place to go for 84-87 civics when I had my 87 Si back in 2003-4.
  • Yes redpepperracing is alive, still noone seems to have tried the zc1 - EW2 swap
