To start with Leith, I haven't forgotten you mate, just eating 50 packets of Wheat-Bix to get enough cardboard to pack the Sun-Visor in takes some time mate!

And Johnno of the Blue Mountains variety, those rims I have are 8" and 6"...... Let me know mate!

All good mate, the slick went to the mechanics for a small oil leak in the manifold......
The manifold was seized on as was the distributor (which is now in 6 pieces) and has taken them 5 days to fully remove. Haven't got the bill yet but I know the billet distributor was $500 alone...... :shock: :shock: :cussing:

So eat as much weetbix as you can for awhile!! :lol:

If you've got a better offer go for it. Maybe some mumblings, but nothing solid yet!

Hang in there Ewie ! :burp:


Ha Ha, thanks Alan... getting back into things now that I've pulled the engine. Other than the broken cam I found 3 pistons with broken rings, possibly hydraulic failure from running with a broken cam.. not sure. All the bearings are well and truly rooted. Bores look ok so I think she's salvageable. Planning on taking the block, crank, heads and pistons to a local machine shop to be tank cleaned and crack tested. Assuming all goes well and If funds allow, I may get them to rebuild the long block and do a valve job so I can run it on unleaded gas. Also on the hunt for a rear sump and pickup so I can change the oil without dumping on the cross member. :)

In the meantime, planning on a thorough de-grease and clean of the engine bay, installing the power brake master cylinder that I've had for ages and generally tidying things up until I can put the motor back in. Aiming to have it done by Christmas ($$ allowing).

Sounds like a good plan Ewie, what motor is it again, just incase I have the sump you are looking for.

It's an FE block, casting number suggest 1967. I thought it was a 352 but the pistons are stamped 390-2V.

Do you have to be on the Comet forum to use that site, or is it separate to it John ?
