I've cooked the motor in my 1970 Renault 16 TL - will need at least new water pump, big end bearings, and the head is probably warped beyond repair (already machined once) ... but since the block is cracked (the cause of my woes in the first place!) and leaking coolant I figure it'll be easier just to drop another motor in ... if I can find one on the cheap in Perth!
I have a crossflow head, carburettors, distributor etc off a '74 TS if anyone knows of a reasonable block with the right cam ... ? There must be a rusty or pranged 16 with a good motor somewheres!

Also does anyone know if you can shoehorn a later model engine (Fuego etc) into the 16?
