Where has your head gone to. Can't trust anyone these days. They will nick anything - -
even if it is bolted down!!
If you want a 1300 then that is what you will have to do I'm afraid and sell the 993cc.

In answer to your question about an engine swop. It is a total no-no. Apart from the four wheels, doors and back lights and rear bumper and petrol tank, everything else is different. Not a good start eh?

You don't say where abouts you live. Always helpful. Anyway, welcome to the world of Hi-Jets and their inherent problems.

All alloy, and an extra cylinder for a start. 16 valves and totally different in design to the old cast iron block 993cc. Have a look in the Workshop section and you will get a better idea of the complete differences.

Just forget any ideas you have of putting a 993cc in a 1300. It just doesn't work. Wiring loom is totally different as is the fuel system, exhaust system, gearbox and mountings, Propshaft, rear floor moulding, over the gearbox - no point in going any further. I HOPE that you have got the idea. Shocked

I've got a friend breaking a 1.3 was wondering if the engine will fit the 1.0 that's all. Looks like I'm on the hunt for a 1.0 .where's the workshop section?

Well may I make a sensible suggestion : If your mate has got a 1300 he is breaking then surely the simplest solution is for you to go and have a look all over it and look at it and see for yourself the tremendous differences that there are between the 993cc and the 1300??
Then you can appreciate what I have described on here. As soon as you lift both seats and look at the gearbox cover you will begin to see the huge differences for yourself.
I appreciate we all have to start learning somewhere and "being totally hands on" since about 9-10 years old is how I have accumulated my mechanical, woodwork, plumbing, engineering, welding skills by shear curiosity and from the School of Life.

If you want a complete engine one on flea bay for £450ish but if its only head, get it skimmed, new gaskets and the usual radiator caps etc etc and you may be sorted. Have a search on here, you will find you are not the first to be in this position. Please start a new thread for this then more will find it rather than continuing someone elses thread.

PS How do you know head gasket gone? Pressure tested system, pressure tested each cylinder? Before you condem the poor thing, make sure its not dead, just been inflicted a non fatal wound by poor maintainance.
