Re: Newbie, Fiat TC & Volumex HFO 501 NEW BUILD 2018

And some more, apparently my exhaust valves are saved!, that’s going to be good news and a huge saving, they cost a small fortune....

Done a lovely job on the blower is the engine work going to be expensive
It’s all relative really, all I can say there will only be two MM running GC volumex motors in th UK, and that’s good enough for me!

Re: Newbie, Fiat TC & Volumex HFO 501 NEW BUILD 2018

More from Guy: condition appears to be bad, there was now way in hell this engine was a bolt in job and run, so pleased I lied to stop that going into my car. It wouldn’t have made 50 miles and killed it. At least now it stands a chance to see another day, enjoy the photos
