yup no worries
first up i got a crank from an earlier 1.5 that had crossed drilled oil gallaries in it, it was ground and balanced.
then i had the block sonic tested and then bored out to fit 1.7 pistons (the sonic testing enables them to center the boring in the casting) i also shaved the block by .5mm to up the compression. I lightened the rods by removing all the excess castings along the length of the rods and also removed the square blocks on either ends, they were all then balanced. If anyone is interested i can dig up the info for the amount of material removed. i balanced the pistons to within .3 of a gram. The heads and inlet manifolds were match ported and all the dags removed and slightly enlarged. the exhaust ports had the same done. a couple of new valves were also installed to replace a couple of bent ones. then i had the exhaust fitted as per pics with the ansa headers. I'm waiting for it to be run in before i get it properly tuned and the carbys rejetted. All it really neads now is some nice cams but they are not cheap and hard to justify at this stage.
As for the car itself its fully stock at mo other than the fitment of a sway bar from a 1200 sud ti, i had the gearbox from the same car as well and was going to install that but decided cruising would be better with the standard one
future plans are some 15inch wheels, lowered suspension, a new paint job and interior retrim
