Yeah, he wanted £1200 for it about 18 months ago or something like that.

I've got a early style 13B that really wants pulled down. Let me know what spares you got.
PM me if you like.

To your suprise it will turned out to be a melodious-sounding engine Myatt.
Shows big primary bridge ports. Secondary are also bridge ported?
Modified oilpressure regulator?
Hi Thomas, yes secondary also bridge ported, the engine was built by Pip at wgt, I spoke to him earlier this week to find out a bit more about this engine.

The spare engine he gave me looks rough, the other parts were induction stuff, starters and alternators. I also have a 13b that was given to me years ago, its very odd, its auto and has mounts on both sides of the centre iron (nothing on the sump). It also has a cast manifold that Ive not seen anywhere else.

Pip thought it might be off a parkway bus :o

I should think so Pete, not sure if I will be able to live with it yet though so I might have swapped back by then :lol:
We have to try these things though.
