yep!
pulled it out thinking it was a 1300cc, cleaned off the crud on the engine number & found out it was a 1500.

Broke it down, new bearings, full gasket set, new mahle 1641 barrels n pistons added, cleaned it up..................ready to roll....hopefully! pale

Was done on the cheap as a stop-gap cos i want a 1776/1914 by the end of the year but there just aint the cash right now, so if it goes pop i aint gonna cry Laughing
