So... this thing span a bearing and completely buggered the engine.

So we eventually found a recently reconditioned 1600cc motor locally for a decent price. Half hour later she was back up and running again.
Now that dad has set the new engine up, i cant believe how much more powerful it feels compared to the old one, it sounds louder, sounds stronger, pulls like its never pulled before and throws huge flames out on command.
No rattles, knocks, and for the 1st time ever no oil leaks!!!

Reallt happy, and its a proper laugh to drive now. Cool



Also made up a removable Bike rack. Very Happy




Future plans are to fit 'all red' rear lights, extend the roll cage to the front, and buy / make some manifolds so we can fit the twin carb setup we have waiting to go on

THIS IS NOW FOR SALE.

I will post up a for sale thread shortly once i know what kind of value these things are as i genuinely have no idea what they are worth as they are so thin on the ground in the UK.

Will be a shame, as its the type of car you know you can never own again. But whilst its nice and tidy and the engine is in excellent condition, it just makes sense to sell.

New project is a 4x4 Landy Very Happy
