Yes it's a bit tight , I tried to put everything on the engine as I possibly could before I put it in the car , the worst things were the heater pipes that go inside the bulkhead to the heater matrix and the alternator was a pain , I had to take the intermediate shaft off just to get it into place and knackerd my arm up , but it's all in place now

The one I chose was originally for seat and vw's but has exactly the same size openings as the uno turbo's , luckily

Re: Uno turbo mk2 rebuild

the standard valve I fitted to the gt could be used on vws too , the forge one will be good quality and nice you have three settings

Re: Uno turbo mk2 rebuild

This is incredible.....the Uno turbo is one of my favourite cars full stop and its great to see someone going to the time and expense to do this.
Hope to see it at a few Italian car shows this summer, and if you ever think of selling then give me a shout!

Cheers , the reason I went for the uno turbo is I had a uno 45 for my first car when I was 18 and always wanted the turbo but couldn't afford the insurance . I am going to try to get to as many car shows as possible and drive it as much as I can ( in the summer with no rain ) .

Re: Uno turbo mk2 rebuild

Looking forward to seeing the finished article. Had 2 of these back when I was 19 until about 22. Most fun car I ever owned and seriously rapid.

The gearbox when running big power and the dreaded rusty rear turrets were too much for me with my income then and i was forced to sell. Loving seeing the re-creation of one here and can appreciate how hard it must have been to gather parts up for it now.

Thanks , I hope the gearbox will hold up , the engine is fully rebuilt to stock with original turbo so should be ok , also the rear turrets were bad on this one too , had to cut the rot out and weld new panels in , cheers

Re: Uno turbo mk2 rebuild

If it's the Tipo gearbox then it should be fine, they've got nice chunky clutch plates too from back when they used to build things with a bit of meat on them.
