Hi all, this is my first ever post here. I'm new to Daihatsu - I was sick off trying to off road a Disco (The family car!) so found a 1979 1.6 Taft. I'm happy as hell with it, but the engine is 1. too thirsty and 2. goosed!(pos head gasket) So I was wondering what would be the best and easiest substitute? Was offered a Peugeot 205 with a 1.9 diesel cheap, could that engine go in without too much hassle? Any other recommendations?
BTW - the first thing my litte motor did was pull a Defender 90 out of the mud at Toms Farm in Mid Wales!
