    Engine is broken! Took the head off, one of the pistons is rolling around inside it's cylinder, it's obviously been run, blown, then had some twat put new valves in the head and part bolted it together!
    never had a need to turn it over first time i bought it as it would have been sent back to the Scottish oil rig worker who i got it from if it hadn't of turned (i know, hind sight blah blah blah), the cams can't turn properly either,
    looking back i should have given it a turn instead of listening to the bull that was now given, but that was years ago when all the time wasting started, bit late to go get my money back and the engine obviously has not been wired and plumbed in and run since i have had it, got a guy looking into it now, so this has put me back a fair bit, i was toying with the idea of a Saab turbo lump with the R25/28 box, but waiting for a rebuild price on this boat anchor 1st!

    My payment to photobucket has run out, lasted all of 3 weeks! Will take some pics next week, due to take it to a chap in Basildon, he will give me a price on a rebuild plus a bore too. got to weigh up the cost of this compared to another red-top, or maybe a Saab? because of all the work that's gone into the preparation regarding prop, chassis mounts, gearbox mount and positioning etc etc, i need to replace it with the same type engine....... watch this space
