Traded it for a mopar engine I had laying around. Cutting to the chase, I thought it had a blown head gasket (oil milked up),but on disassembly of the 1300 found two broken pistons. so I found a 1500 outta 81 FI for a good price. Question I have is what do I need to swap over; Flywheel, timing belt, etc. I heard a hot set up is a 1500 block with a 1300 head. I'd like to keep the 1300 head/intake setup because it has dual webers, cam, and port work already done on it. Any help would be greatly appreciated! <!-- google_ad_section_end -->

    [FONT=Trebuchet MS, Verdana, Tahoma, Arial]<!-- google_ad_section_start -->Hi there congrats on your new X!! The 1500 block will work great with the 1300 head, especially since you have carbs and port work. You will use a 1500 t-belt (since the block is taller)and if you retain the stock 4 speed (a fine plan), you will use the 1300 flywheel and clutch. It's also possible to put the 1300 ring gear onto the 1500 flywheel and use the bigger 1500 clutch. When you use a 4 speed, you must use the 1300 starter.
    The 1500 has no provision for an oil pressure sender for a gauge(I assume your '74 has a gauge),
    but with the block out, it's easy to drill and tap for it if you want one. The 1500 has electronic ignition (a good thing) and you could use it with some minor wiring effort (assuming you have the distributor and ignition module and coil) or you can use the 1300 points set up. Good luck and enjoy,
    Steve<!-- google_ad_section_end -->
