I might have just bought a VW Golf GTI 1.8 16V that needs a little work. So will be splitting my time between the two. Will hopefully be cleaning up the engine tomorrow and starting to rebuild as well as doing some work on the Golf. Will keep you updated .

mk2 big bumper? :ermm:

Pistons Numbered & Marked orientation of the caps .

Would it not be a good idea to overbore the engine by 20 thou, with new pistons?  :gimme:

Yes a Mk2 Big Bumper

The Engine was donated for me to learn rather than go back in the car. :)

Very Late Update..

 

The Engine Internals were cleaned as well as the Block and the Head, the Block had been painted a few times (badly..) and I decided to strip off the paint and repaint it while cleaning it up. Although it was a few evenings worth of work and my hands ached from holding the blade the end result was worth the pain.

Once the Engine Block was cleaned and the paint stripped off I then painted the block and cleaned and painted the Head.

By this point the Engine that was going into the Mini had been finished however due to a few missing / broken parts the one I had done was then stolen back :( However the good news is that a engine was put back in the Mini.

Sadly, There were still a few issues and eventually the owner of the Mini25 sold that engine on and has bought a new one. However this was it finished end of Summer last year.
