Yes that was what I was getting at rgwm I found a low mileage one at a good price but have now rethought it as although the engine No. change as far as the DVLA is concerned will be straight forward , as they don't make a 1.8 147 I do have concerns about the issues it may cause Insurance wise and also for a future buyer so have now decided to get rid instead.
Thanks all for your help once again.
Its another sad case of cost over value. and as I have a 164 the 147 will sadly have to go.
What I was wondering more than anything is is there any reason I couldn't have used the clutch and cover on the 145 engine with the concentric slave cyl and the 147 box.
