IDI Engine / 11mm 1.6, are they that bad?
« Last post by Tmarkle on December 12, 2017, 08:50:25 pm »
In Montana itís not as simple as just finding a 1.6.... They are difficult to find and outrageously priced when you do. This is the first 1.5 Iíve had, and Iíve never rebuilt one, so I donít know if itís going to be reliable if I rebuild it. Some people claim that 1.5s are piles no matter what while others say they are like 6.0 powerstrokes, with headstuds they are fine. No need to get upset, and Iím not really sure what you mean by drama, just asking questions from people who I know have more experience with these cars than I do.

Well, then go out and find a 1.6 and put an end to the drama already. Yes....it really is that simple.

If you build a 1.5 you'll need a turbo.
 It just doesn't have enough power to handle a hill and a headwind.
I have everything to turbo it so thatís not a problem. With head studs and an oil cooler would it be plenty solid? Iíll also use a 5 speed transmission rather than the 4 speed. I donít want to rebuild a motor thatís not going to be reliable or be able to takes hills.

I-shaft seal carrier bolts are TTY?
 I use blue lock tite on them and the I-shaft pully bolt.

IDI Engine / Re: 1.5 Diesel cutting out under acceleration

It is pretty easy to string a new Blue wire to the Alternator from where it comes out of the ignition switch.  I am sure you can find a small hole in the firewall to pass it through.  There are several coming out already with some room in between the larger wires.

I am not sure where you are located but this came up here in Oregon a bit back and is still for sale at 75 bucks.  Would be bulky to ship but not out of the question.  You might get it and use it as a model for the other passenger side.

Your seat bracket awaits you.

I will check out the blue wire and see if there is a break or something along those lines. I thought about converting it to a GM 1 wire alternator but Iíd obviously rather just get the one on it working.
