Dave,

Is the engine a bolt in and fire up or does it need a quick going over?

You will need to set the carbs up and balance them as they will be removed along with manifolds for transit (needs to be done to refit tinware anyway), set timing and make sure the tappets are gapped properly, all the usual stuff you would do, but for all intents and purposes it is bolt up and go. Has had new points, dizzy cap and rotor arm and new oil filter. Will need a good run as it's not been fired up regularly in about a year.

Hope that helps dude. :)

Quit the bumping please. Especially not at 2 hour intervals.
No need to reply which would bump it again thanks.
I'm not replying to bump the thread, I'm updating as I go and as things happen (for example as soon as I got the shout for going offshore again I updated this thread along witht the three identical threads on other forums) using my phone to access the internet and the edit function does not work on my phone's browser. Apologies if I have caused an issue or a problem to other users. I'll wait until the thread drops off in future before updating it.

right it's been a while, it's dropped well away from the front pages.

All I have left are:

Bug rear lights complete

Type 4 Porsche 914 motor

baja chassis with all the heavy bracing, beam supports, chopped Baja kit etc with tax exempt V5

MK2 Golf rear lights good condition

Bug steering box

It needs shifting, I need the space, so will take sensible offers. :)
