Engine spec for 146 boxer engine (1.6)

I'm trying to locate engine specs / works manuals for the 146 boxer engine. The engine currently taps and I just wanted to find out if this was a common occurence with the 146. Theres a component on top of the engine which, I'm guessing is a distributor - seeing as the HT leads come out of it - which I suspect could be the source of the tapping. Without any manuals I'm a bit loath to start taking the engine apart.

For engine specs, try this url: www.geocities.com/zalik146

If you have not taken apart the 146 engine before, my suggestion is, don't. Bring it to a reliable mechanic. Option is to contact the local AR owners club to see if you can get some help.

You can also contact Zalik146 for help. He drives a 146TI.

Cheers, Mike

Hi, just to add, I drive a 1.6ie 8v 146 boxer too. The item in question is probably not a distributor but most likely the megneti Marelli injector(it's cigar-shaped and black). Any other suspicious displays on the panel such as the injector icon lighting up when engine is on...??
