Looking superb Dunc!

Is there much play in the gear selector linkage on the gearbox? (the one that lifts the selector shaft up & down)

I did have...only had slight play in mine but it translated to a HEAP of left-right movement in the gearstick. Sorted it now though, courtesy of a long grub screw and lots of careful filing to create a slot for it to locate in Smile

Well, i may as well update you all being as ive been slack with them recently (again!)

So, over the last 2 months, ive been cracking on where i can. This update will take me up about 2 weeks agao. So i'm a little further on from these pics!

Heres where the last update left off. I had just got the engine and box fitted! Smile


After this, i trial fitted the UT radiator as i ran this before on the 2.0 8v engine. I did have problems of the turbo being close on the 8v setup though, and this caused some over heating problems when at a stand still or in traffic. BUT, on the 16v setup, it soon became obvious it was going to be a little bit too close.......as in touching! lol!!




hmmmm......think i might get heat transfer from the turbo??


So i decided to leave that and have a think for a while as to what to use! The radiator also wasnt the only thing to be too close!.......

.......The alternator was too!



I couldnt get it to sit in towards the engine enough so it was resting on the chassis.


So, after asking a bit of advise i set out to modify Smile

Alternator back off..


Bracket taken off...


I then extended the slider hole to get the alternator to sit further in towards the engine


Cleaned up and painted, and then fitted! Very Happy Sorted!


Then i had to decided which belt to run. I knew id need a shorter belt as im not running the 16vt coupe power steering pump. So i needed a 5PK belt, but what size! After some trial and error, i ended up with a 5PK1025


And fitted! Perfect! Might be close to the chassis, but it fits like it should!


looking towards the front of the car to the alternator




So that was that problem solved.

My braided turbo oil feed fitted which i made ages ago for my 2.0 8v engine


Next up....wiring! Oh YAY! So heres a few pics

Coupe wiring.....and there was an awful lot! I took out every bit from the coupe. just so i knew i had everything just in case i needed it!

As you can see, i plugged in the clocks etc and worked my way through the wiring until i had labelled everything!




Luckily, the main engine loom is seperate from the car loom. So that was fairly easy. It was then working out what wires i needed to tap into and connect up to get it to work with the existing Uno car loom. heres just some pics of during the process

wiring going in


Ignition tapped into


my mate helping with wiring


Now the coupe has the special fiat key immobiliser system in the ecu, so i had to get around this! A quick call to KJ at Voodoo Tuning and he sorted me out with a non immob chip.


And fitted into the ECU. This is a standard chip.....for now Wink


I didnt take pictures, but i also had to get the Alternator wiring loom out of the main loom. This is because the alternator loom also has wires for the oil pressure light and oil pressure switch along with oil temp. So i wanted to keep it OE and use as much of the original coupe loom as possible, so i had to strip all these wires out of the original loom and rund them in seperatly. Massive ball ache and time consuming. No pictures im affaird as i was getting F**ked off! lol!
You can see the wiring fitted in this picture


Had to modify the Delta 1.6 HF turbo half shaft holder as im using the HF turbo gearbox and the shafts are a different size etc. So couldnt use the coupe halfshaft holder. note a bit cut off lol


fitted along with half shaft and drive shafts.


bought new jubilee clips! man, these add up in price!!! but make a huge difference on a rebuild!


New breather for the standard coupe 16vt catch tank


Will post a pic later of these fitted.

Anyway, by now i had spoken to Drupi (with the 4wd 2.0 16vT uno) and he runs a Skoda Felicia 1.6 Radiator. So, with the little help of Ebay, i had one arrive hehe!


This is a simlar shape and size to the UT one, but slightly thinner and not as chunky looking. Plus, the standard UT thermostat screws straight in! bonus!

So, out came the angle grinder to remove the 2 strips you can see in the pic. This allows me to move the radiator forward as far as possible.


can see the bits ive removed




I tidied them up, painted the edges and trial fitted the radiator.


fits neatly in


and i now have alot more room between the turbo and the radiator. This is more room by along way than i ever had on the 8v engine. Hopefully this will help with temps.


Next up i bought a new intercooler. I sold my previous cossie RS500 spec one as i also thought this was another reason the car ran hot with the 2.0 8v engine in. Not enough air getting to the rad and engine bay.

Heres the old RS500 fitted to the car when the 8v was in, just so you can remember Wink


new Intercooler. still big, but clearly smaller than the RS500 one!


trial fitting


So allow ALOT more air to the radiator (which combined with being further forward and away from the turbo etc will help temps!)


And the bumper and grill quickly test fitted to get an idea of how it will look


really pleased with that! Very Happy

So, next up was the start of fitting the intercooler. It had to brackets on the bottom, along with a bolt hole at the top. So, i got a length of 50mm x 40mm angle iron which was 5mm thick and started making my bracket.

I cut it to length, and then took a strip out to still allow air to the rad.


And trial fitted (not yet painted it)




I have since fitted it properly with brackets underneath and it is properly rock solid! not going anywhere!

Heres a few random pics now im onto plumbing etc.

Washer bottle fitted


a brand new Uno 1.7 Diesel header tank. This was imported from italy. The deisel header tanks are the same as the Uno turbo ones, but dont have the 3rd water pipe on the side. this is a good thing as you don't need it with the 2.0 conversion. Only need 2 pipes. But its nice as it fits in the original UT headter tank space and keeps the OE style theme of it all Wink


more pipes going on


And even fitted the wing back on Very Happy



So, like i said, this take me up to about 2 weeks ago. I am further along, but thats for another day. The list to start up is getting pretty damn short now Wink

I'm just awaiting parts now to finish plumbing in the intercooler, the fuel lines and the top water hose on the radiator. Other than that, a couple of other wires need lenthening and we are ready to start!

Went to see Dunc yesterday and had a good look over the uno and it really is a mint conversion. Top job. Cannot wait to see this on the road.
