[Vwdiesel] 1.5 displacement increase?

I think there are two many differences to make it worthwhile. That said, I 
have a mostly complete 1.5 with newish oversize pistons that I don't need. It 
came from an '83 Diesel Vanagon parts lot I bought, not original engine of 
course. The head is rough - looks like someone tried to surface it by hand. I 
pulled it apart to see how it looks, and the pistons are nearly new. If anyone 
is near Victoria, BC, and has something interesting to trade, let me know. I 
thought I'd build it for my Jetta, or maybe a genset someday, but that's 
probably never going to happen. Now it's just taking up space so I'd rather it 
go to someone who can use it...
