I finally decided to fit my 1.6 16v ecotec engine into my 1.2 nova today.
i have got a few problems though.....First of all when i went to fit the alternator it is about an inch off of the bottom pulley....i am using a 1.4 sri bottom pulley (non- vbelt) and my origianl nova altenator and altenator bracket.....what do i have to use to fix this problem?
then i couldnt get neither of the heater hoses at the back of the engine to fit......what hoises do i need here?
my manifold wont mate up with my exhaust at all, so i am guessing ill have to do some modifing to get that to fit.
Then i couldnt get the car to even turn over but eventually traced it back to bad earthing......after doing all of that it wont start at all ...any ideas?
turn it over a few times and see if the plugs get wet then check for a spark. when i did my engine the first time i tried to start it it did not work i checked the above took all the plugsd out and cleaned them then it fired first time.
