Wanted 1256 engine

Postby Shellysowner » 17 Mar 2007, 12:10

Wanted 1256 engine ('cos jifop managed to lose his!), with or without 'box, doesn't have to be running as I only really want the block and the head.

Not looking to pay anything/very much apart from a few token beer vouchers.

Would like to collect from within 100 miles of the LE16 postcode. Post here or PM me. Thanks.

Sorry run that past me again? :lol:

I don't need it but I do want a block to build my new engine into. Mark has offered me one but its 136 miles away and I have to help him remove it... and I'm oh so terribly lazy :P And I haven't got a spare alternator... well I have, but its a NOS one and I'd like to hold on to it :D

Also thanks for the offer Galgeth - if I happen to end up in Cornwall and still need an engine I will be sure to drop by :)

Soory ralph, let me re word it
the engine was for the Silver Estate Clara was using, but Ian has used the one from another car he had, so this engine is spare....

Its been rebuilt at some pint but was a good runner, its yours as said fro free, let us know when you need it, I could drop it off at the secret easter gathering!!!!! as long as i get a hand to put the 1159 engine back in the car to take home...

Sounds like a fair deal. Silver estate? I thought it was a green one that blew up? I can't keep track of all these vivas flying about all over the place :roll: :lol:
