Re: Conrod gone through the block.
Hope you all good. Got my 147 back last week so thought I would post the results. Went to Lloyd in Clovertech Dagenham. He quoted me £1600 for a reconditioned engine and Fitting. Got a call from him saying the air intake plenum was damaged from the conrod breaking the side . The clutch also needed doing as engine was out would have been false economy not to do it.
came to £1780 in all. Lloyd was good and did the job in couple of days. I have been running the engine in and it seems to be idleing a bit wrong. The engine seems to be throbbing a bit.
Is this normal?
