    Using the Fischer Tropsch process Carbon Monoxide (derived from Carbon Dioxide) and Hydrogen can be catalysed to form any type of Hydro Carbon fuel required.

    whilst I know you cannot advise as correct - a friend of a friend has offered me a CHF engine from a rear bumped Skoda with 64k miles. Will this work with my ecu/sensors ?

    As to whether a CHFA could be made to work I don’t know without doing some research at work on ETKA and ELSA but I suspect it could be a trial leading to more wasted time and money and a dead end... it isn’t like when we were young and I could pull the 1600 AD code engine out of a 75 1303S and stuff it in the back of a 66 1200 and frighten myself trying to stop on 1200 drum brakes... Friends would spend a Saturday and Sunday with their dad (I didn’t have one, he buggered off when I was 5) going to the breakers and pulling the 2litre out of a Capri and then driving it to college on the Monday morning under the bonnet their Mk1 1100 Escort... the world has changed and I am not sure if it is for the better.

    I know what you mean- I know ECU has stopped a lot of that and actually the emissions side is better with them, decent idle and timing etc!

    I had a moment of brain fade this morning as I decided to recheck the timing....

    Slowly turned by hand to get the dowel to drop into the flywheel hole...all good ...looked in the top at the cam and thought HORROR it doesn't line up!
    Removed dowel on flywheel and turned a full revolution and then it did line up! Wally that I am, and remembering the sprocket sizes figured that the cam lines up every 2 revoultions of the crank?

    anyway assuming that is as it should be the compression test was redone - it is odd #1 has nothing registering at all not even a blip, #2 is golden at 150 and #3 has a register but is so close to zero that I did it twice.

    so it looks like the engine is dead, but as he has hardly any cash in it and to replace with a similar learner friendly car that is going to be ok - that we are going to opt for a decent 2nd hand unit - that I will leak down test ahead of parting with cash. If I get a BMD then I know all the good service bits - like belt, plugs, and even the timing chain kit could be used and not wasted. I'd love for him to have 1200 beetle but no one will insure as its seen as a classic!

    I do presume that Head gasket cannot be re-used [ I know the bolts are a no ]

    [daughter paid 2k for a warrantied French car that had a HG go just after 6months] - cars are just not built to be easily repaired or are even financially viable these days.
