Be sure to get a 2.0 one.
There are 4 less teeth on the 1.6 version.

And ,after being parked up for that long I would remove cam cover and pour a good dollop of engine oil along camshaft before you start turning engine over to prime oil supply 😁

It will be pretty dry after sitting for so long, and cranking speed is real hard on the cam/follower at the best of times ,and the pinto engine aint particularly robust in that dept anyhow . By the time you have cranked up oil pressure some damage could be done. 🙂
