Ok, is this a 1.8?

I'm trying to buy a 1.8L motor and I'm asking sellers for the engine number and couple of pics of their motors. Apparently it's harder than it seems to provide this info. I finally got a pic from one seller (but no engine number) - can someone tell if this is a 1.8L from a 914?

Thanks. It's the only pic he sent me. I'll ask him again for the engine number.

I agree, this is not a good picture to tell from, it could be a 2 liter from this angle.

intake air distributor does not look like a 2.0L as throttle body does not come out of the top but comes out sideways (horizontal). guess is it's a 1.7. there is a little plug in the center of the fan also makes me think it's an early motor. 1.7 was early, 1.8 was later & didn't have pointy plug

Jeez, I can't even see that much detail!!! It looks as if it doesn't have the Bus dipstick tube coming out of the fan shroud, but I can't tell for sure!

The blobl in the middle could be the oil filler neck, or it could be the stand in the middle of the engine for the 1.7 air cleaner. The 1.8 air cleaner bolted onto a bracket over on the left intake runner pipes.

Don't see any intake boots or air cleaner at all. No AFM if it's a 1.8, no MPS if it's a 1.7, so it doesn't exactly have the whole FI system on it. Also note that the 1.8 needs the double relay and resistor pack that hang off of the battery tray...

I don't think that you will be able to tell from this picture.

I have a 1.8 & everything looks the same as mine but what you need to see if it is a 1.8 is the air cleaner. This does not appear to be in the picture. It would be on the right top side of your photo because you are looking at the engine from the fron of the car & the air cleaner is just behind the driver's seat.

Another way to tell would be to see where the tempurature sensor is loacted. You might ask this guy selling the engine. It should be located on the passenger side of the engine (left on your photo) and screws into the head just belo the intake manifolds. I believe the 1.7 & 2.0 are in completely different place.

Ask him for a pic of the air cleaner anyway. On the 1.8, a major part of the fuel injection system (air flow sensor) is in the air cleaner & you will need this part to complete your engine. This could be expensive if your engine dosent come with it.

Hope this helps............................Vern

Alfred - If you need a 1.8 long block, I have one. Since you don't accept emails, I can't PM you. Can post images and give you engine number later today.

Ron,

Thanks for the offer but I need a complete 1.8 including all the cooling tin. There is a guy close to me (cheap shipping) who says he wants to sell me his 1.8 but he's always slow to get back to me ... it's been dragging out for a few weeks now and I still haven't gotten the engine number or pics from him so I'm keeping my options open.

Nope, it's in the exact same place on all of the injected 914 engines.
