Default does anyone have a 1.6 or 1.5l diesel mk1 head?

My buddy has to get rid of his mk1 81 caddy diesel (n/a) soon and I had told him in the summer i would buy it from him when he was done with it. however it came up for sale sooner than i anticipated and a bad timing job by another buddy wrecked the cylinder head.


SO

does anyone here have a usable 1.5 (i need to look into it) or a 1.6l diesel N/A head for a MK1 rabbit on the cheap?

would you be willing to check how much they want for either the whole engine or just the head?
pictures of the sides of the cylinder head and or stamps would help me id the engine.
This weekend i'll be checking out if the dead engine is a hydraulic rods or solid.

I miss the Mk1s (four Rabbits, and one Scirocco) I've had over the years. I went looking to get another about a year and a half ago, and was shocked by the prices. It's one of those things where if a Rabbit comes up for sale in my area again, for a fair price, I'm going to get it, whether I can afford it, or not.
