I bought an engine this weekend. It's a Datsun A14. Nissan made the Austin A-series engine under license until ~1972 and thereafter made its own version of the engine, increasing squeezing more power out of it. At 1397CCs it's perfect for me. The parts are plentiful and it'll fit under the original engine cowl. This is probaby one of the most successful engines ever made. In fact, the A15 is made today by Nissan and used mainly in forklifts.
