Re: water pumps

I believe the 1.3 pump will fit, but if it has been sitting for awhile, I wouldn't trust it to last very long.

Re: water pumps

Whereas, the 1.3 pump will fit, and probably run ok, it isn't as strong a pump at the 1.6 pump is. So, it may work ok, but then again, it may not be able to keep up and you'll be overheating. Heck, I'd try it tho... if it works, (after a few weeks of testing), let us know. It may not be as big an issue as it sounds.
(incidently, the alternator is the same issue. The 1.3 will work on the 1.6, but doesn't put out as many amps as the stock 1.6 alternator. guess it depends on how much electrical junk you got hanging off yer rig).
Good luck...
