Blown 1600 :(
Posted 03 July 2012 - 04:06 PM
So i have to figure out what direction i should go with this.
Am I better off trying to convert a more common engine?
I have been looking on line today am getting a little discouraged about the hope of replacing or rebuilding the current on with an other 1600 due the lack of available parts and engines out there.
Does anyone have any suggestions on what a good solution might be?

So, the ea81 and 82 will bolt right up to my trans with no issues?
the transmission is the front wheel drive 5speed.
I was told by a mechanic that an 1800 wouldn't fit.
I thought he was wrong, but not really sure.

ea71 are not that hard to find, your location only has a town, what state are you in, maybe somebody on the board could help you find one. good luck.

the ea71,ea81,ea82 all fit all fit on the transmission my dads done it before
fat case ea71 ( from later years) ea81 and ea 82 will fit the same trasmissions but not the transmission in this guys car.
this problem is simple enough- you have a blown ea71, get a new ea71. That is the ONLY simple answer.
