Hi
 
Looking for some advice - so after restoring the van and major servicing the engine - it decided to go Bang - ironically coming home from the Big bang at Santapod.
 
Its a 1.6d non turbo - I'm looking at the cheapest and fastest way to get back on the road to enjoy the summer.
 
I have some questions - I cant find a 1.6 JC engine but the head gasket has started to go  - happy to skim and put new gaskets etc.
 
There is also a JX motor locally - does this fit straight in ?
 
I've been told AAZ and 1Z - but trying to find them seems difficult as would prefer to buy and here running
 
Any recommendation for a good easy swap engine please

Jx should fit straight in as long as you have all ancillaries, turbo, air feed pipe etc oil return, etc,  you would need a turbo exhaust I recon, I have a late system if y need one, if it’s complete you should be laughing

I have a 1.6 CS engine here. We've done 20K miles on it and it was running perfectly when I changed it for a 1.9 a few years ago. Carefully stored in the dry with injection pump full of lube oil since then. I'm asking £250 for it because it's in the way and I'm not going to use it again. It's near Bridgwater Somerset.

PM me if interested
1.9D AEF T3 Kamper
All sorts of other oil burners too.

Hi all
 
I have sourced a cheap 1.6cs engine - they started noticing water in the oil I have stripped and head looks good no visible cracks - I was going to have it skimmed but someone told me you cant skim the diesel heads?
 
Do I just rebuild with new gaskets - or get it pressure tested and head measured? cant seemt o find the head warp tolerance anywhere
