The 1.3 carb will drive the 1.6 engine fine. We've dne swaps this way before with good results.

Cannot use the timing belt on the 1.6 engine. The 1.6 is about an inch taller and you'll find the 1.3 timing belt way too short. You'll need to get the 1.6 belt. Make sure its for the 8 valve engine.

Get the 1.6 cam timing gear. You'll find that you will have to get the 1.6 belt. For some reason, its been my experience that the teeth off the 1.3 pulley do not properly align with the teeth on that belt. I"ve had to go with the 1.6 cam pulley in the past as a result.

The basic outline of the pans is the same. I usually just use RTV though and forget any pre-made gaskets.

No problem. A vendor is pretty worthless if they won't take the time to share experiences. That's why I participate in these bulletin boards and email lists. The 'Zuk community' is more important to me than just making a buck.
