156 not quite as dead...

Well, I've had a chance to look more closely at the 156's engine with a view to what might be salvageable & in the process decided to put another battery on, at which it fired up on it's remaining 3 cylinders readily first time!!! So, it's not nipped up like I had thought then.
This puts me in a situation where I'm now considering as an option, buying another 2.0 motor with a knock but not having thrown a rod (obviously for next to no money?) & *******ising the "triple" to make good any other issues before having the crank of the "new" unit checked out/re-ground if needed & installing new shells to it.

And to think that I even considered breaking her!

So, does anyone in the general area of Crewe have a knocking or rattly 2.0 ts motor they want rid of? If so, then I'd most likely be interested. This includes anyone who has bought a "knocker" as a spares car, I'll give you more than the weighing in value of the motor obviously - but can't pay silly money as funds are tight.

Many thanks for any help, Dan.

EDIT-: Aha, got my signature working now... Oh, the joy of being the noob!!!

'92 FIAT Tipo 1.6 Daily Driver
'77 Austin Allegro 1300
'77 MZ TS250 "supa-5"
'93 Cagiva Mito EVO
No more Alfa.....For now at least!

I'll be back in a 156 soon, and when I return It will be for good!

Re: 156 not quite as dead...

Just testing if my signature works, didn't appear on the last post...

Also in addition to just an engine for rebuild, I would still consider a short unit provided there was a sump available too.

Cheers, Dan.
