  Used to be anyway... They made 1.6 with 11mm bolts and 1.6 with 
12mm bolts.  Yours should be 11mm bolt.
  It's entirely possible the engine's been changed at some point in 
the last 29 years.  As you look, under the hood, count your 
injectors from left to right.  Roughly, under the #3 injector is a 
flat spot on the side of the block, about 3/8" wide and an inch 
and a half or so long.  There will be a couple stamped letters 
and some numbers.  Post the letters and we can tell you for 
sure which engine is in it.
