Re: engine rebuild (turbo)

Standard internal parts are more than adequate

What do you want to know about the gearbox?

Re: engine rebuild (turbo)

Forget that its a Tipo gearbox, get a clutch for an Uno turbo. The only difference is the spline for the input shaft. The early box is 17, later (Tipo) box is 20

Tipo clutch will bolt up the same but its not as strong.

Standard engine internals will be reliable with twice the original power.
Thanks gdrake88 thanked for this post

Re: engine rebuild (turbo)

Right i've rebuilt the engine finally, i need some engine mounts but cant find any anywhere i seem to remember jai or louie saying they bought some a while back?

I could also do with a cambelt cover if anyone has one that they want to sell.

Cheers
