Well the engine that was promised did appear on New Years day and what a bargain it seems to be too. Seller delivered it to my door and was a real gent’.
Everything looks sound; I’ve wiped the cam cover off and had a quick look. It’s very clean with no gunk and a resent new cam. All of the plugs have brown tips and it turns freely. Also has a vernier cam gear and toothed timing wheel on the bottom pulley. I’m well chuffed, it will get a clean and maybe a coat of paint then it will be bolted up to the gearbox and stuck in the car.
