This will be a small build of my 1.3 charade getting a new heart a 1.6 HD form an applause.
The charade was started early this morning with the first thing being taking the intake manifold off the 1.6 applause.
This was a simple task as it consisted of removing the manifold nuts and bolts and also removing a few hoses and clamps as they were interfering with the removal.
I then removed the few bits and pieces like hoses. Kind of clean.
Photo of my charade and new 1.6 that will be planted in.
Until a gasket kit and other engine is removed i will be putting the 1.6 aside and have already started on the 1.3 and the removal from the car.
Meanwhile while pulling the plugs out of the ECU the girlfriend got carried away and has stuck stickers “that will help me identify items of the car” as she thinks the whole car is getting an upgrade.
The hardest part so far was getting the ECU plugs through the firewall, the rubber grommet was so tight in their!
First thing tomorrow morning will be removing fuel hoses, draining coolant, removing radiator, removing oil from engine, and disconnecting clutch cable, speedo cable from gearbox, then may have time to remove cvs from gearbox. Until then!
I will hopefully be able to upload more photos next time around as the my limit is set to 5 photos. I took lots but have made this short as i was unable to upload
