Engine gone bye-by

my old twink lump has died just shy of 128k miles....think it's seized and probably terminal

Thought the variator was rattling this morning but in retrospect it was maybe something else so i now have to weigh up the options - car sitting outside the house on the street and with no driveway my options are pretty limited and i'm not sure it's worth trying to source and get fitted a replacement lump, especially with money being ubber scarce at the mo (why are babies just so expensive?!?)

okay - some techy questions for the engine boffins....i know the sump is different on the 166 twink but any other differences? And with mine being a CF3 is it possible/wise to fit a CF2 lump which seems easier to get hold of?
