1972 victor fd estate , just dragged it screaming out of the garage , the idea is to do the welding it needs , not a lot , engiine swap and try to increase its kerbweight so i can tow my caravan for my holidays in 3 months time.
as was. missing its front seats . engine is knackered.
the slant four engine weighs 370 lbs. to be totally comfortable with towing my caravan it needs to increase the kerb weight by 150 kg. i have a fully rebuilt front suspension ready to go on , the rear axle has been totally rebuilt with new brakes shoes , cyclinders , pipes .
so any ideas on a quick engine swap that will give ample power and increase kerb weight , id love the sbc route but thats not possible. four potter will have to do. ade
