What engine in a Puddlejumper?
Thanks to everybody who replied to "998 in a Puddlejumper". I think I have moved on and it looks like the Anglia lump is going back on ebay soon. I have been very interested in the different engine options suggested by those of you who have done the conversion such as Spitfire/MG 1275, 1500, Morris Minor. Now I am looking around for a suitable engine and box and these seem to come along seperately. What fits what? I saw an old Morris 8 engine and box and it looks so neat it would fit in anything but its 3 speed. What about 1300 Marina engine and box? Would a marina box fit on a Spitfire 1500 motor? I think a sound Triumph engine would be good. What Triumph engines could I look for at the breakers that would also fit snugly into the Prefect without need to cut and shut the chassis? What about carb(s)? I have never set up twin SU's. I know a guy who has a field, well a big back garden, full of old Dolomites and similar cars. maybe I could try and get something from him. All suggestions and tales from the garage much appreciated. Cheers, Dave
