Re: fiat palio 1.2 8 valve and 16 valve

You mean if one can change the 8V and 16V engines?
Yes you can, no problem at all, if you have all the parts.

Re: fiat palio 1.2 8 valve and 16 valve

I suppose it could, but it would be much more easy to change the complete engine.
Only changing the head will see all kind of difficulties, like the timingbelt bearings, ECU, sensors, exhaust and so on.

Re: fiat palio 1.2 8 valve and 16 valve

Yeah I get your point, problem is, to find palio motors in east london is like looking for a needle in a hey stack. So I was thinking of slowly building it up piece by piece. If I were to get a whole motor I wouldn't waist my time with the 1.2. I'd just drop a 1.6 16v in

A Palio in the UK..??
Rhd or Lhd..??
How did it get there, Fiat UK never imported any in the UK, as far as I'm aware of..??
Anyway, no need to find a Palio engine, basically all Fiat 16-16V engines are the same, so an engine from, let's say a Bravo/a should fit....!

Re: fiat palio 1.2 8 valve and 16 valve

No - we did'nt get any Palio in the UK, or ANY Lancia's..

do you get the Punto in ZA..??,
as the 16 v 1242cc should be the one you need, also found in Bravo/Brava,

I knew East London was south of the Equator..,
