Hey guys, Miss Lulu has had an engine failure. There is something inherently wrong with that engine, been rebuilt twice by mechanics and gone again. I am thinking of transplanting a 2 litre engine into Lulu...I DO NOT want to spend any more money on this engine. Questions: Does a 2l engine bolt straight on to an 1800 gearbox...? Is it hard to strip off fuel injection and put carbies on...? Hoping to use air filter and carbies from Lulu.. Is there a good guide? which is the best, I have idiots guide to vw and I think I have the Haynes book too... Should a clown attempt this? Is there a procedure for starting an engine that has been idle for a while. I have the help of Dad in law who has done it before and Mum in law who helped him...some tools and a sewing machine if needed... I am thinking of starting soon and having a mechanic rescue me if I fail...Is this wise? Everyone says they are easy to work on and now is the time to learn...bloody things are keeping me broke. I am going to use the 1800 in Lulu to learn more and possibly rebuild it...but I have a lot to learn..
