My 1990 Swift GTI with OEM g13b motor was going to be replaced with replacement g13b...

So with good intentions, I was going to do timing belt,water pump,and seals before the install.

My problem is the timing belts don't match and i find the crankcase gear don't match.

The replacement motor crankcase gear is not as wide,and timing belt is not as wide. The water pump fits.

I believe this replacement motor is a JDM or EDM,but how can I tell? Where can I get proper parts for the replacement motor? It seems like slim pickings for parts for this car.
I've tried RockAuto, and looking on line with no luck.

Strange can you load some photos. I'm curious because i replaced my timing belt last year and it was straight forward. and some one had said something similar here a while back. But i need to find the post.

this picture is a mk1 twincam engine and use narrower timming belt , is that the motor you are talking about? (notice the different intake manifold setup)

@RP91GT- Strange But true, I can post pictures as soon as i can.

@Bostsgt- I got the motor with just head and block,so I can't verify the intake... Although, I would imagine this is the same engine.
I know there's number/code, i believe on the block. I wonder what would be the best way to source the timing belt and crankcase gear ..?

My plan B is fit on the crank gear and replace the cam gears to accept the wider belt,but I don't really want to do all that.

casting on the mk1 head is different, in the thermostat region, you need to plug a coolant hose, and swap all mk2 timming components, covers,brakets pulleys ect
