    dti block

    i think my 1.7 dti engine has given up the ghost lack of compression on 1 and 4 has anyone else had this or is it engine swap? if it is engine swap is the earlier 1.7 8 valve block the same? as i can get one for free and if it is the same is it easy to transfer all the parts?. i remember reading of people using early blocks fitting bedford midi 2.0litre pistons in and running the 16 valve head any ideas most thankfull cheers kev

    If you're on about the earlier isuzu 1.7 td 8 valve engines as used in the mk3 cavalier/astra, then the basic block looks the same, the oil filter is a different set up though, with the 16v using the paper one, wheather there are any major differences though I'm not sure.
