T4 AHF Engine Swap

Post by SithDowell » Sun Aug 04, 2019 12:25 pm

Alright troops, hope I'm posting this on the right place (apologies if not).
I've accidentally bought a T4. The seller tells me the timing belt went and he's replaced the head but the engine will no longer turn by hand. He suspects Pistons/liners sticking.
I suspect he's lunched the entire engine and it'll need a bottomed end rebuild too.
However I've also got a mk4 golf with the 1.9tdi 110bhp AHF engine. Mechanically it's sweet as a nut but there's more rust than metal in the bodywork. So my plan is the fit the working engine in the working body, but I'm told that it's a nightmare to use the AHF in a T4.
Can anyone advise or point me in the right direction? What are the tricky parts?
Thanks for taking the time!

Best person to ask would be Robert McKenna at Ayrshire Resto Fab.
Not sure if he's on here but is a member of the Facebook group.
