When the 9CG engine became the 10CG engine the stroke was increased
noticeably but the main bearings remained virtually unchanged.  This
created an engine that developed a reputation for low-end problems.
I know a couple of people that have 10CG engines with no complaints
however, so I am not certain how valid this reputation is.

Other than the large main bearings the 10CC has no mechanical
fuel pump, a different (better flowing according to Vizard) head,
and I believe a solid tappet chest (no tappet covers to leak.)

If someone knows of a basically complete 10CG engine laying around
I have been looking for one for my Sprite.  A DPO took out the
10CG and put a 9C engine in my car.
