1500 singleport to 1600 twinport

I've just taken delivery of a 1600 twinport/dualport block to replace my 1500 singleport.

I understand that I need to replace the inlet and carb manifolds and also the tinware above the cylinder heads.

Do I need to replace the fan shroud and oil cooler ? And is there anything else I have missed ?

Replacement engine

I'm looking for a replacement engine for my 64 Split, it currently has a (broken) 1500 single port.

Without having to upgrade anything, (gearbox/brakes) what size engine can I put in and can anybody recommend or have experience of a good engine builder/supplier ?

Re: Perforated Vinyl

It's an 11 window, but it's a custom made interior so I was just after a roll of material so I could tackle it myself.
