Hi guys,

I need an engine for my '95 Cavalier 1.8i.

It's the 8v, single-point C18NZ engine. Anyone got one (or even a complete car) sitting about?!

Must be a good 'un, preferably in Kent!

Cheers!!! :)

oh hey man.. haha you know i didnt even look at the username :)

i could ahve sworn there was one.. how come your after one :)... you had a fantastic one just a few months back hehehe.

how are things.... things good here... about to do a few wee mods to the drivetrain of the CDX... and that knocking noise i asked about a while back has turned out to be a combination of CV joint and lower ball joint on that side.. so both are going in for repair tomorrow.

tbh best place to look would be a scrap yard,

the 1.8's are just thrown away rather than being sold like the 2.0 16v's etc.

sure if you call around the local scrappies there be plenty about,

Stuboy - I'm in Maidstone.

Dave, bought another Cav from a user on here.. just couldn't resist!! Hope you sort the CDX.. shouldn't be too dear. Incidentally, read about your request for a C/R 'box - I have an F18 one here from my Astra GSi, perfect condition, yours for nothing.... but it's one hell of a drive as I'm sure you remember!!

Andy - I've tried all my local 'suppliers'!! No-one seems to be salvaging anything off low-spec Cavs now... 8v engines are just thrown away after they've been de-poluted. Shame really!!

They aren't thrown away. They go to China and come back as DVD players:lmao:
