Hi Bruce,

No I was under the impression bob has a bare 302 block! I'd sell everything I've got here that I wouldn't need and buy a yank V8 they're £350 on eBay!

Thanks

Aaron

Steady on there, yes there is a spare engine but its probably best to hang on till the one we are doing is in the hole , bolted up and positioned. You can pop over and have a look.

Hi Bob,

I'm in no rush, that's basically what I was thinking, just wanted to express an interest in it when you've finished with it.
I'd definitely like to come and see your projects at some point.

Cheers

Aaron

Didn't think non British lumps would be available that cheap :D

A guy Ive had some bits off in past runs at Gurstan Down hillclimb has a westy widebody with a TVR 4.4ish (rover v8), it looked cramped in the engine bay and lots going on electrically but still a lot of fun , so a bare bones big motor certainly appeals don't want ecu and loads of electronics just a good old fashioned mechanicals, carry a few spanners and a pair of stockings and you can fix anything :D

The below pic is the 302 in the mule at installed height. At the scuttle end the trumpets are 50mm below standard bonnet without a scoop.

Engine mounts are an easy job

Pushed right back as planned leaves plenty of room, timing cover and w/pump fill up the rest of the forward space but there is no weight to them.
Image

Exhausts have an easy exit as the come out lower than the top chassis rail.

Hi Bob,

It's looking good, are you going to make your own manifolds & downpipes? Impressed by how small it really is, I wouldn't have thought it!
