Hello

I have a spare complete block (block, crank, rods, pistons) from a 33 1.7 16V and I´m thinking about using it to build an engine to one of my Sprints.
Since I have a lot of 8V spare parts I´m thinking in using this block from a 16V that came original with flat pistons, and a pair of 8 valve heads that came from a late series 33 (they are not flat, they are the one that have a combustion chamber, see picture taken from the net), with a cams and solid tappets (shim version) from a series two 33.
All this will work with carbs.

Does anyone made something like this?
Will it have valve clearence?
What problems will I possible have?

My engine uses a 16v block and 8v mechanical valve heads, sadly it doesn't have standard 16v or 8v piston but uses JE pistons instead, bored out to 1.8.
