Re: Engine Swap

Yeah, thought as much. Plus, I'd be concerned as to why it was reconditioned, and the qulity of the work done on it.

Engine is now bought and paid for, and will be getting picked up on Monday!

It's a 50,000ish, model 2, so it's perfect. It's not been run for a year or so, but at 200 I can't argue. I used www.UKNextDay.com for postage - 100, but that's from Essex to Ayrshire.

Can't wait! Whoooo!!!!!

Re: Engine Swap

Well done on the find, when you get it I would take the plugs out and turn it over by hand.
Might be an idea to fit a new cambelt and variator while its out of the car - so much cheaper and easier. Also might be a good idea to get a new auxiliary belt and tensioner too.

Re: Engine Swap

Thanks for all the help guys, would never have been able to get the engine with out it!

Yup, guy said engine turns over by hand fine - but I'll check myself when I see it. I'll also give it a full service while it's out
