Hello everyone this is my first post here, ive been browsing these forums ever since i bought my first prelude last summer. Im not much of a mechanic so bear with me please.
So this is my problem last week my timing belt snapped as i was driving so im afraid there is valve damage. I currently have a frankenstein setup(h23 block, h22 head), and most likely will have to replace the head. Ive been browsing for cylinder heads and just cant decide if i should stick with the h22 head or go back to the stock h23 head. Im not sure if the pistons and rods were replaced for this frankenstein setup so im leaning towards buying the h23 cylinder head. Any thoughts?

typeT: I believe he's asking if he should put the H23 head back on the h23 block, or keep with the h22 head on the h23 block as is currently installed if he finds the valves/head is affected.

The role of the timing belt:
Through the connection with the crankshaft and with a certain transmission ratio, the accuracy of the intake and exhaust time is ensured. The use of belts rather than gears for transmission is because belts are less noisy, less variable and easier to compensate for.
The timing belt connects the camshaft and the crankshaft, controls the opening and closing of the valve, controls the rotation of the crankshaft and the upward and downward movement of the piston. So if the timing belt breaks, it will cause the valves to open and close at the wrong time. The timing of the up and down reciprocating motion of the piston is wrong, at this time, the valve and the piston will collide with each other, causing damage to the valve and the piston. At this time, the engine can not work, and the engine needs to be overhauled.
