Saw this on there this afternoon, there much to be gained by boring it out to 3.1?

I'd say it's where there was parcel tape over the ports to stop anything falling into the inlet tracts:)

This has been on the bay before, together with the Jenvey's that he has advertised. Think that his start price was 2K before, and 600 for the Jenvey's. I know because I bloody near put a quote in on the Jenvey's, then thought na! quick enough as it is, (enough to scare me at times).  Ray

That`ll be the jenveys I looked at then    asked how big they were overall, was going to measure them up see if I could fit them under the bonnet of the escort.

Actually that all looks really good to me.

You can see it's a new BOB block.

Girdled to well some one who actually knows a thing about the 24V built that.

Come on Tone you can see it's not old gasket but what's left behind from packaging tape after it's been on for a while.


Looks familar I reckon Mike????

It's Terry Clarkes engine. AFAIK he has been selling all his race stuff recently, the escort,  t56 and now the engine.  He started a family and this stuff has to go.  If there's no reserve somebody could get a bargain. It had a lot of work done to it.
