 Post subject: G200 Swapping 1981 LUV

I recently picked up an 81' with a rather bad knock, has a stock 1.8
My local engine rebuilder estimated $1250 to rebuild the motor altogether.
I've read that the G200 will work with the trans and the motor mounts, but I'm not sure how easy it will be to find one.
Any advice?

Welcome. The G200 is really not much more engine. If you have one, use it, but I wouldn't go looking too hard for one, it won't give you much more power. IMO $1250 is a good rebuild price if he is doing everything ie rings and bearings, reground cam, rebuild the head, etc. If he's doing the R&R, even better.
