Engine Swap Compatability Question

Postby Eires » June 21st, 2014, 8:27 am

Hey guys,

I recently posted an ad looking for a 1.6L engine for my MK 1 1980 Jetta as the original block was cracked across a head-bolt hole. A was able to find someone selling a 1.8L engine which seems alright to me; however, the 1.8L this guy is selling is out of a 1991 Jetta. I just want to know if I'm looking at any major problems here. I want to put the original trans-axle back in the Jetta as well as it is completely fine. Does anyone have experience with a swap with this large of a difference in years between vehicles?

thanks in advance for the help.
