What engine is fitted at present? Looking for a replacement head maybe the lowest cost option. Definitely easier to fit than an entire engine ;)

Thanks for the input guys.
The engine is an early 2.5D which is overhead valve, not OHC.
The camshaft appears to run through the gearbox bellhousing with a pulley on the end.
This pulley then drives all the pumps etc.
Bottom end is good to a head will fix it, failing that any engine/box that I can graft in will do.
Even a petrol will be better than nothing.
Thanks again.
