Re: urgant engine swap

straight swap, you will need everything though, all the electrics, both ecus, brake and suspension assemblies, the lot, oh and a very understanding insurance broker... good luck

If you wouldn't mind to use proper language please as we have non English members on this forum who would appreciate it and may even reply with advice.
You may even get more replies from your posts that you say no one ever responds to.

Re: urgant engine swap

Because the Uno you're putting the engine into has a 1.4, it's basically the same engine married to a later-style gearbox. I think you will need to use the flywheel off your 1.4 in order to get the clutch and gearbox to work with the 1.3 engine.

As turboned pointed out, many details are different between the Turbo and other models. Front and rear brakes, engine wiring (one ECU is in the driver's footwell, the other at the back of the engine bay), and even the steering rack is different (quicker ratio). All these parts can be swapped but you won't be able to do it in a day!

One thing is for certain though; at 25 quid the Mk1 is a bargain. It may be worth fixing for the saving in insurance hassle (have you asked any insurers what the situation would be with a Mk2 1.4 converted to be a Turbo?) Rust can happen anywhere on an Uno - it doesn't necessarily mean there will be rust in all other places - it happens 'randomly'.

Oh and BTW, welcome to the Uno forum...

Thanks,
-Alex
