What is the mileage on the engine?
Finding a whole new engine is very unlikely as these vans are so old. But the 1647cc is a very straightforward OHV engine and it seems the mechanics are suggesting a head issue. It should not be difficult to remove the head and send it away to an engine machine shop for a refurb. The cost at the shop should be reasonable, but also it depends on how much your mechanics are charging.
I assume the mechanics have checked the ignition timing and valve clearances first? Does the engine smoke blue or black smoke out of the rocker cover or the exhaust pipe?
Which county are you in?

Just thinking a bit more on this issue if its the rocker gear or pushrods replacement then the head doesn't have to be removed, only if its the valves or valve seats that need replacing does the head have to come off.
