Dunno if this helps, but when the old mans 202 and 4 speed began to give us causes for concern, instead of the rebuild route, I opted to do a motor and box transplant. Scored a 186 and trimatic from ebay for $300, a shifter for $70 and a trans cooler for $25. whacked it in, its a beaut. Just waltzed into vicroads and transferred the numbers over on the rego, sweet as.
To rebuild our 202 was going to cost way heaps more than what the 186 and the other gear cost.
You can always rebuild your original stuff later on down the track, as time and money permits. Meantime, an engine swap takes but a few hours. To swap it over again at a later date won't set you back much, just the time.

Regards,
Ross.

Try Shane at HP Engines. I'm fairly sure he is in Brisbane and is a helpful member of OH...

He has posted links to his Website and his phone numbers a few times. A Search SHOULD turn up those posts.
