Nice one mate……I know you’ve been looking for one for a while. That would keep me busy/confused for the rest of my life!
Can’t wait to see it in and running

Cheers guys! It’s going to take a wee while, need to pick a few brains on here for a bit first…

The last engine swap I did was back in 1979, 1100cc to 1600cc engine in my old escort, a lot easier back then

Should arrive in the next 5-10 days and I’ll get a good look at it.

Houston, the eagle has landed….

Donor car arrived this afternoon Image

Engine is smoooooth, so smooth and quiet my mate jumped out of his skin when I revved it ImageImage

I’d forgotten just how nice the V6 sounds when you blip the throttle, think I’m in love again.

Next few weeks going to be busy researching before the reaper van gets its transplant.

And waiting on some new parts arriving mid October, everything seems to be on back orderImage

It’s like being a wean on Christmas Eve ImageImageImage
