Hi fellow nutters...
posted this to Chun below.. but copy here in case any of you guys with the parts missed it.
tried the parts on the 172 engine today (I now have a spare mk1 complete unit )
will be able to supply pics of what needs moving / removing.. its fairly minor. also, the front engine cover from the 172 can be re-used (Needs just one hole drilling and tapping in the new inlet manifold)
the head will need a slight porting session on the inlets.. only where the injectors point though.
considering not using the inlet adapter plate we discussed either ??.. might be better to drill the head (Its the same head casting as the turbo head and the locations are already there)- will have some pics of the manifold fitted soon and see which way you guys want to go ??.
will also have details of the oil feed and return as soon as I remove the 172 sump.. the feed will take the form of a tee piece in the oil pressure sender - will post details of the thred size / part number etc.
at some point, can you check your 172 fuel pump... it is located under the back seat.. a simple plastic clip on inspection cover needs to be removed to see the pump top.
have you all got 1 fuel pipe only going to the pump top??.. seems some mk1s had 2.. (ie - a return as well as feed)
(ps - you dont need to remove the pump.. just the inspection cover under the seat.. its a 2 minute job)
