Re: 1.6 performance
take a good look at the condition of the 1.6 head. I have heard that there are a few issues that commonly pop up with the heads on these motors, such as valve seals.
Tomkat is coming over tomorrow to take a good look at the 89 Kick I have and chekc out the motor. It does all kinda of interesting things..sometimes it blows huge clouds of smoke when you start it..sometimes, none. Some times its really noisy or really rough, and sometimes not. Its weird.
Since Tomkat has professional credentials in this dept, I trust he can get to the bottom of whats up with it and I can find out how much if any work I need to do to it to get it running well enough to transplant to either the tracker or my sami.
Please post what you discover, 455. Thanks.
