    Default My New 'MV' or rebuild project !

    Well the Morris PU has gone back in the barn to make way for my exciting new project, thanks to one our fellow forum members.

    A 1938 Rolls Royce Merlin II as fitted in Spitfires and Hurricanes

    There are a few bits still to source, so if anyone knows of any Merlin parts please let me know.

    I also have two late series Merlin engines

    That has the wow factor. I still find it amazing that someone who had never seen a Merlin engine got 10% more power out of it by looking at drawings and measurements. Then came Mrs Shilling.

    Would be cool to have it roar once again.
    Good luck on the rebuild.
