I´d get another engine if I were you... easier and cheaper.

I may have one kicking about in Bristol if you need one.

That is the problem, I´ll need to see if it was manufactured before 31-12-1972... Reg is KAO 755L Before anyone else goes through the bother: Date of Liability 31 08 1989 Date of First Registration 07 03 1973 Year of Manufacture Not Available Cylinder Capacity (cc) 1725CC CO2 Emissions Not Available...

Austin Seven

Hello all, I was just wondering if anyone here knows anything about Austin Sevens. The pre war type, this is a 1933 Ruby. She doesn't want to start. There is a spark at the points, fuel and compression. The car was laid up some time ago, but has not been started for a good while. Carb has been apart...
