Pinto Engine

Postby SpyderMan » Fri Nov 30, 2018 6:13 pm

So the strip down of my Midtec Spyder is progressing well, although cold weather may delay me for a month or two! Question is does anyone know if the 2 ltr Pinto (205 block) has the same mounting points for engine mounts and also gearbox etc as the 1.6 version? I am in two minds as to rebuild the 1.6 or go for a 205 block and rebuild that instead. TIA

Straight swap, spend your money and time on the 205.

I was going to add, that its a straight swop and don't waste time on the 1600 block, but beaten to it!

1600 pintos were not very good

Thats was probably spelt wrong, or had some grammer, that the "grammer police have to have a moan at
