Hi Rich!, looks like I'm the 1st!, ...... I've owned my Mk 5 since 2005, and have been interested in them since I was 7 or 8, -I'm now 43! ..... I bought mine for £2000 as a non-runner and gradually restored/decommissioned it to presentable roadworthyness by the September of 2007. I use it for shows, etc, and over the last 3 years, I was using it for Prom-Transport...Weddings etc. I'm currently about to re-install the engine, after having replaced the centre seal on the fluid flywheel, - a VERY involved job! . Now what do you need photos of? ...as my particular vehicle is almost totally complete. I'm not aware of a U.K. Saracen Owners Club, but we could always start one!, I have most manuals and publications too, so ask away! .....

I have just put an engine back in a Saracen, complete with new flywheel seal. Any way I can help, just ask.

Reg,

Is there a trick to get the oil pipe engine to oil tank off? I am trying to get the oil tanks out ready for engine out, would like to undo at the engine rather where the pipe goes into the tank. Is there a special tool?

 

Thanks richard

Richard, Oily is right, it is awkward. If you undo the two bottom tank mounting bolts you can get a bit of extra clearance. It also helps to remove the hydraulic tank and pump first.

Thanks All

Engine is now out and about to take gearbox out, looking at slinging a chain across inside as the old side visor hinges are big enough for a shackle to fit in (MK6/7). then lift from the chain to get a plank under the gearbox and transfer box. That is the plan!
