Hi, everyone. I'm new to this club and I need everyone's helps. I have a '82 rabbit diesel pickup, but the engine is worn out and would like to know if an engine from '83 quantum would work for the change. The reason i'm asking is that the engine from the quantum is set front to back like a rear wheel drive car instead of cross-way. both engines are diesel 1.6 liter. Y'all's help is deeply appreciated. Karl.
