Post a photo of the engine that will help a little, also look around the engine for identifying marks

If car is 1984 it is most likely that engine is 1.3 or 1.6 given that it is carb but it could be a 2.0 they did do some cars without injection it depends on which market it was supplied to and which car it was in originally

Photo will at least give clues to which series the engine came out of, unless you are sure it was 1984. Engine number is on side of engine with carb (at the front of car ) near oil filter, very well hidden!

I doubt it's an 1800 as they are ultra rare in UK.

1600 or 2000 would be most likely - tell us what numbers are cast into the head between cylinder 2 and 3 that might give us some pointers ;-)

Understeer is when you hit the wall with the front of the car. Oversteer is when you hit the wall with the back of the car. Horsepower is how fast you hit the wall and torque is how far you send the wall across the field once youve hit it.

I thought that but didn't like to mention it Lips Sealed
Maybe a 'letter to Brezhnev' moment?

The 2 litre block is taller than the others so could give a clue. The engine number is the best bet. Late 2L blocks had no provision for mechanical fuel pump either.
