Crank worth saving ?

Trev was not making a "Point", just being realistic. Some years ago I had a conversation with a Guy at Burton Power and he wanted me to ship 10 or 15 Essex down to him for appraisal prior to making an offer on them as he said the supply of core had dried up. I asked him who would foot the shipping c...

people keep junking parts
Sorry Trev but as I have nowhere to store my spare engines or bigger stuff they will probably go for scrap.

two or three hundred quids worth of galv chassis (as long as it hasn’t been cut)
Picture #5 with the beer keg shows some pretty ropey welding at the bottom of the B pillar just forward of the wheel. :w
So I don`t think its a galv chassis Jim :idea:

I did it online in about thirty seconds
But yours was already registered as Historic.
You insured it first, then did the MOT Exempt on line ??.

Tax Reminder on Exempt Se6a

Must be insured too.
My first ever GTE is being registered as Tax free tonight, and MOT exempt from Midnight.
Post Office as soon as they open.
Got it insured for £70 fully comp and due to the eviction it`s going to sit outside my garden till I get time to sort it all out. :w

New V6 (Essex) ALLOY cam timing gear sets

The first type of gear was a Tuffnel type of resin and fibre, these just wore the teeth away till they failed, these had a very small steel centre to bolt to the cam. Sorry, The Ford response was to bond a different type of resin onto a large cast centre disc to bolt to the cam, these tended to crac...

Fuel Cap Re-Manufacture

Mike Gaughran did some work trying to get these manufactured a few years ago in conjunction with the TVR club, I don't know how far they got.
