You say 1.7. do you mean 1647cc OHV or 1721cc OHC?
Is it just a head you need and are you sure you need a new head?

There's a 1647 being broken on Ebay HERE I know its a 1647 as I asked him about it for someone else who needed a manifold.
How bad is the head, can it not be repaired with Devcon or a GOOD ali welder?

BTW: Before you refit the head, be it the one you took off or a different one on a 1647, get it skimmed first, otherwise you could be plagued with blowing head gaskets.
I hope you haven't disturbed the wet liners when you removed yours.
