    To be fair there both rust free, 1.5 is 80,000 miles and 1.8 50,000, both never been welded, do I have to change the front hubs to allow for the 1.8 shafts, and the Rear roll bar and axle brace bolt straight on the 1.5 ?, also is the clocks straight forwaRd swap thanks

    So started getting few bits for the 1.8 engine rebuild, but in two minds to put the engine in my 1.5 or keep in original shell. My 1.5 is real tidy on the bodywork and the 1.8 has some scraps and dents. How difficult is the swap going to be, thought’s please

    Just had a quick look over and the radiator is bone dry and expansion bottle has a silver thick residual, so most definitely head gasket I would say, but possibly a bit more internal damage???
