[How To] Reviving old (Tuned ) boxer engine!
Some historic Data
Well , as you know , i was looking for a way to increase the performance on my white QV 1.5 Sprint preferably by installing 1.7 8v ideally with mech tappets. After quite some time and with lots of luck i was able to locate and have (for free) one such an engine and as an added bonus with reprofiled cams. Unfortunately , cylinders were to worn and would need complete overhaul so , due to financial reasons , the project was cancelled once more. At least i have kept the heads with reprofiled cams & mech tappets along with the dished pistons and maybe in the future pair itwith a 16v block .
At the same time in my misfortune i got real lucky because i was given (for free again) a race spec/prepared 1.5 engine that was stored in a warehouse for quite sometime. The engine has Alquatti dual lobe cams with bigger valves, ported intakes and other stuff.
So we got the engine to my friends in the workshop and we are in the process of reviving it after all this years. So i am going to have lots of pictures during the process for everyone to see.
(Just give me couple of minutes to upload images.)
