Not sure what it's worth (so open to offers?) but I still have the main parts to a 160 engine, only issue is the values bent when the timing belt snapped, I can get pics if you like? Maybe some basic work and then transfer the bits from your current one? I've never skimmed it, if there is a method to check for porosity I can try?
Currently sat in storage and don't think I'm going to use it.
