    It's a nice easy engine to work on, especially when it's out of the car. Last time I did the head gasket on o

                If you find one that is a member of https://fer.co.uk/ you shouldn't go far wrong, probably be dearer than a 'normal ' engineering firm tho'. 1600 head is cast iron, so easy to do.
