You can go on eBay and get an f22b DOHC (non-Vtec). They are about $300. less and have the same 160 HP. All you really need to do is swap your intake (because you want every vacuum hose going back to it's original position and the JDM fuel rail is on the wrong side compared to us in the US). You'll need your old engine's wiring harness because theirs are cut out and you don't know if you're getting a motor that was automatic or manual. Certainly keep your old engine right beside you as you do the swap because you'll need your distributor since you don't know if theirs had an external coil or internal coil. I've had 3 of these JDM motors in my racecar, it's the same power, just seems like the peak HP is later in the rev, like maybe less torque but more top end.

did you continue to crank it to start ?
did you hear anything other than usual starter noise ?
you may have gotten lucky if no clanking or clicking noise ---don't try to start it again though
and that is timing belt not camshaft
for future knowledge when considering a vehicle for purchase ---ASK or find out if it's what's called an interference motor or the non interference design ---if you snap the belt on an interference design
alot of twin cams are --but I see a trend from automakers to get away from this --which they should
then albeit some or even major damage can occur ---the 91's civics 1,6 Single over head cam is a non interfernce design --now 1989 or 1992 on well that's another matter
I love my wifes 1991 civic dx ---to date only things ever to fail was the distributor and the timing belt and tensioner ---ps --think about replacing the water pump --front crankshaft seal as well while
you are in there replacing the timing belt ---do a coolant leak down test too --= 5 minutes
to check intake gaskets etc and head gasket --opportune time for a replacement
Yoy can buy the entire engine gasket set generally cheaper that a few individual one and keep
the others for future or give them to a new owner Someday --good 1 st cars --they are capable of 250,000 + easy ---key to longevity ---add an oil cooler with cooling fan set at the right temp with
fan --even better if you live in the mtns like I do
I do not think the original problem even matters at this point since the engine is probably broke with valves running into pistons.. when you fix it replace every thing that is broken.. and .. just getting in there and replacing the belt can alert you to any additional coming problems like the bearing going bad in the tensioner.. always check or replace the tensioner if there is any doubt as to its condition.. good luck.
