Hi All
Am I missing something on this thread, did anyone mention price and did anyone buy it?.............seems to have changed subject along the way.
Buy the way, for all of you lovers of traditional architecture, I'm a specialist in building restoration and conservation in England and have worked on buildings such as Buckingham palace, Windsor Castle, 10 & 11 Downing Street and managed all of the facade works on St.Pancras Station which you may recognise from Harry potter.
I think that's enough trumpet blowing for now.
Cheers
Simon

Hi DAF
There's not really much to tell, this is a car I bought in Berlin a few years ago, the engine went off to a specialist called Modus who suddenly found they needed to move premises after 20 odd years with very short notice so nothing got done for a long time and I saw the engine for the first time this week for well over a year.
Meanwhile, uninstructed, Modus got on with the work so I'm now in by 200 hours!!...too late to stop!
Rock and hard place, I've told Modus to stop at the moment while I hunt for parts and try and resolve the situation we're in, Modus have no direct contract with me so potentially I could abandon the engine but I really would rather complete it.
My big concern is that after all the cost and effort, I could still have a problem engine.
What's your experience ?
Cheers
Simon

Thanks Jim, that was a very useful link that I'll pass on to my engineer, quite dramatic at the end though!

Hi All

Many thanks for all of your replies, please ignore what I wrote in my earlier enquiry about age related registrations.
I saw the engine for the first time in over a year yesterday and can confirm that the stamped engine number is A500227, I have attached a photo and will follow with further photos.
The cylinders are 3.25" with a 5 inch stroke.
Cheers
Simon
