Once the engine is in i will give you a hand, it needs to go back together ASAP or things will get lost.

Just bung the 1.3 back in! It was just a bit tappety, a good service will help. Insure that, then in the mean time build a monster engine, by the time you have built it you will insure it. Get a cam belt and service kit, water pump and thermostat. Otherwise it will be in bits forever anyway.

you say it but its not that easy, cu it was sat all the gaskts need doin, then thehead would have to be skimmed, then carb done, their only worth £50 - £75, so by the time its done it will be pointless, y dont u cum up an put the 1.3 bak in? its not that easy when you dont have a engine hoist an half decent tools

an tappets are £7 each an i need 8, i aint spenin £56 on sumit so useless
