    I would be interested but I'm located on the west coast of Ireland and shipping would be expensive. I'll have a look into prices and get back to you. Did i come across this on e-bay, biggest concern for me is if there are any cracks in the blocks or heads. Thanks

    Thanks #cosrec I have someone coming to sandblast the chassis this week so I'll give those areas a check when the wheels are off.

    Getting there slowly, I have to register it and I cannot find the number stamped on the chassis. Would anyone have an idea where Thornycroft would put the chassis number?

    http://hmvf.co.uk/profile/5933-guy66/ Got a reply about the thornycroft engine in Denmark, they have one and its fully overhauled but the price is too high for my budget. Its great value at €4000+vat as it's fully complete Maybe someone would be interested, Thanks for the info Hopefully what I have is repairable http://hmvf.co.uk/profile/9190-matchfuzee/

    Great to get the radiator back in, just the T to fit but looking better.

    I'll check out the price but might be better with what I have, the cracks aren't internal and will be repairable, if I decide to change it out I'll give you a shout but I will probably stick with my own engine. Thanks

    The engine is running perfect and starts first turn every time, I haven't checked the compression as I dont have a gauge but I might borrow one and see. very interesting fitting EFI to an engine like this and I would be keen to see how it works out for you, it would be worth fitting to this as the 2 carburetor system is very crude and can't be very accurate to set up. looking forward to hearing how it goes..

    That's true. worth asking the price anyway and don't have to commit.

    It is very tempting but I don't want to spend too much and I have a feeling an engine that is still in a pallet would be too expensive. Good to know in case I find major problems with my engine. They have a good website. Thanks

    I'll have a look online, have you a name for the dealer. I would be interested but might be outside my budget. Thanks

    Finally got the radiator unblocked after a lot of hours pushing thin wire up and down the core tubes.

    No leaks into pistons or sump which is great news, the rad housing was cracked and 90% blocked so had to remove it. I’ll give it a try when I get the rad back on. Good to know this works as some of the stuff on the market isn’t great.

    It’s really amazing how close you got to the original. Thanks Richard for sharing it. Aidan
