I've recently discovered that theres multiple Chinese companies manufacturing brand new engines for some reason. Mines clapped out and i don't see the sense in rebuilding a 35 year old engine, would one of those bolt into a 1.0l, it looks like some bits might need to be switched out for sierra parts to physically fit it in the engine bay. Surely someone here has tried one.

Chinese motors are for carry vans so the dizzy drive gear is cut the other way so you either have to swap the gear or the whole cam to run a Sierra dizzy housing other than that it's all straight forward.

I think 2 members on here have bought them and a couple of people on facebook too. I haven't heard anything bad but there's not much first hand info out there.

It'd be more now (dollar weakness) but when I priced them up a couple of years back the cheapest was about $800 delivered for a long engine. Crazy cheap!
