Specifically mentioned in earlier reply above 13 Round coolant ports ; no other "holes " again the timing chain has a large opening not" hole."
The 116 engine has had many changes in it and was used in many models during its long production run from 1970 on. Major changes included fueling change from D type electronic injection to K Jetronic ,its mostly a European model engine. The USA version is the 117 with many major changes for emission control , little parts interchangeability with 116 engines with 92 mm pistons.
Awaiting reply from major rebuilder of these engines for factual position on coolant ports.
