As some of you may know, i bought a little red mk1 Uno from Jon last November time. After running it until early this year and the gearbox going bang it has sat in need of some tlc.

It was previously running 1242 8v with 866 cam and single weber 36 carb, but due to no compatible gearboxes easily obtainable, i bought a 1299cc SOHC and box from Lewis who has a 16v panda and TJET Uno on Fiatforum.

Plan is to do a bit of engine work and eventually work up to running it on a pair of weber dcoes/dcnfs with a worked head and newman cam. Although the engine swap is easy, there are a few bodywork issues i need to address beforehand, so have got lots to do!

Engine wise so far, i've not done a great deal as not had alot of time or money. Have got flywheel lightened and balanced to a brand new clutch, blanked off mech fuel pump as using electric, replaced sump gasket, painted sump, rocker cover and cambelt covers/shield, replaced points, condenser etc in dizzy. Have got a set of 7mm spark plug leads too.

Have completely stripped the interior to find what needs doing, pictures will speak for this! Needs some sills, repair to nsr arch and repair to osr floor pan all doable :D

Am looking to sorting it out into a capable/fun little car i can take round a few tracks and possibly convoy over to the Le Mans classic with work next year in. Will keep you all posted.

A bit of progress. Took my gearbox, driveshafts into work, cleaned them all up in the wash tank, rebuild all cv joints with new boot etc, and gave them some paint. Got my flywheel lightened and balanced to a new clutch too :)

Good to see. I understand they're a lot of fun the little Unos!

Bit more done tonight, removed the windscreen and bonnet. Some small rust holes found under windscreen seal on drivers side that need filling in with some weld. :)
