Default Finding a starter for a 1990 crx with a b16a and ls trans?

I have a 1990 CRX and I dropped a b16a in it with a ls trans. I can't find a starter for it. does anybody know what kind of car I can use as a background so I can find out what kind of starter to get? It's also a manual trans, cable.

Being a cable I'd try one for a 90-93 integra manual trans. That's what I had to use on my set-up. I have a jdm b16a and cable lsd. 94-01 integra(i believe all), b16 del sols and 99-00 civic si for sure have hydro clutches. I got one for a b16 sol and it was all wrong.

any b series starter will work as long as both are manual starters or both auto's. the usdm ones may not look exactly the same as the jdm ones but they will bolt up and function properly. I took mine off a 93 integra LS and it fits.

Heres some lists of the cars that have parts compatible with the the b16: (you might need this later)

Jay is wrong.... Ash is right. Any B series will work.b16,b18b,b18a,b20,b18c1, b18c5, b18C doesn't matter. As long as it's manual on manual or auto on auto. They all have the same length and teeth.

EDIT: You should also try to get a Y1 or YS1(b16 cable tranny with LSD) as it is a lot better then a LS tranny. LS tranny are pretty bad if you plan on racing. The gears are are just too long. A b16 tranny with a LS 5th gear would be nice for gas mileage though.
