Welcome, Ryan! The first manual you should get is the Idiot's Guide by John Muir. The second one should either be a Bentley or a Haynes. Many questions will be answered by these TOOLS. Yes, a shop manual is one of the most helpful tools you will have so be sure to get one. All are less than $40 each, even less if you buy one used, so there's no excuse not to have one! :) To your questions: 1) Nope. The seat tracks are different. 2) For 1970 the engine size was 1600cc. Rebuilding the engine to stock specs is cheaper than making the engine bigger. Also, if it still has the fuel injection (FI) then it is definitely a 1.6L since you can't mess with the engine size and keep the stock FI.
