I've just found the site I wanted for engine conversions. Go to http://126fan.cx.wix.pl/index.php It's all in Polish but scroll down the left hand column till you get to "swaps". It is all very self explanatory giving the engine sizes and each page is full of pics. There are really good pics of the bell housing adapter plates used, front radiators and the methods of adapting engine mounts. Everthing from 903cc to 1242cc Punto FIRE motor. If you want more GO, the 1242 motor comes in 16v and the 1116 Uno motor is basically the same as the 1300 Uno Turbo 105bhp unit. This last one can, of course, be instantly upgraded by 'chipping'. I was amazed how these engines fit so well in the engine compartment, especially the 903cc. This is the one I am going for. All I have to do now is find an Autobianci A112 Abarth version. 1050cc and 70bhp will do me. BTW, the 127 Sport is only 903, but produces 70bhp as well. That should be easier to find.
