I'm still learning, don't know alot about building an engine.
Just want some advise on what to do.
I have a 186 in my hr with a better head than original (don't know how much has been done to it), cam, extractors, twin strombergs, 5 speed, etc.......
Motor is getting a little old now, I think pistons are a bit loose, going through a little oil etc.
I don't want to put the car off the road and i've got access to a red hq 202 (free).
I hear different opinions on which motor is better... 186 revs harder etc. Would I be better off with a 186?
Now, if I was to do the 202 what things can be done, I want it to be pretty quick (Don't want to go backwards from what i've got) but still be able to cruise and at a reasonable price. I will be building myself with a mates help.
I was thinking to start with get it hot tanked, honed and ballanced etc.. should I bore out though, but then again it might need to be.....
Should I use the head i've got assuming it is a 186 head? I'd get that re ported and pollished I think.
I've been told a vk comm 6 carby is pretty good to use, I want to get rid of the twins.
So basicly a quick motor at a reasonable price.....
Any help would be very appreciated thanks.
