I have a single port 1679 engine for sale. it is turn-key minus the exhaust system and clutch friction and pressure plates but I do have new clutch plates for 60 extra in either style pressure plates. It is all painted up in Hammerite black and silver enamel paint. I have converted this to a twin-port fan, shroud and oil cooler to keep it cool. This engine should have plenty of low down torque, so might be good in a rail or Baja. It will have plenty of get up and go in a buggy but might run out of steam at higher speeds.

Engine spec...
Recently line-bored case
Reground crank
New big end and main bearings
New seals and gaskets
Nice cylinder heads, de-choked and the valves ground in
Low mileage 1679 B+P's
TP oil cooler, fan shroud and fan
New SVDA dizzy
New HT leads
New spark plugs
New fuel pump and fuel pedestal

The engine is up and running, it is located at NN6 6JU Ring me on 07875984529 with any questions or to arrange to come and see it. The price is 800.00 plus 60 if you need the new pressure and friction plate (200mm) I might also be able to give you money for your old blown engine!

Cheers Rob

Hi. Is the engine still available?

There is a chap down in Swansea who has provisionally bought it but has not found the time to fetch it yet. So I am hoping it is sold but you can never be quite sure

Thanks for asking , Rob

I am putting this engine back up for sale, as I can not get any reply off the chap who wanted it.

Cheers Rob
