Engine block wanted...

Postby dmc4087 » Thu Feb 22, 2018 7:44 pm

Hi all,

I know this is a (very) long shot, but just wondering if anybody has an engine block for sale?

Mine isn't great and it has a snapped head bolt, but if I cant find a replacement then I'll get this one sorted out.

Cheers

Is there an engineering workshop near you that can do 'spark erosion' services to get rid of the snapped head bolt?

Hi Nick!

Yea I can get the bolt out I’m sure, but there are some other issues. So I’m just seeing what’s out there before spending money on this block.

Actually just found out there that the bolt has been removed, no helicoil needed! Will crack on with the other issues in the meantime.
