1.7 on E-Bay

I have just put a spare 1.7 engine on fleabay.


Its complicated, but some of you may remember my white 33 went up in flames in February. I salvaged the engine but the weber carbs were scrap but I was able to save the idle and main jets; i had a spare pair of Dell 40s off another engine I was going to rebuild as a 1.8 so I sold that engine and kept the carbs to put on the salvaged engine. I also recently bought a 16v running on 36 dells, this is now going to be the 1.8.
So the Weber 40s off the engine on E-Bay will be going on the salvaged 1.7; the Dell 40s currently on the salvaged engine will be going on the 16v. This has left me with a spare 1.7 engine and spare Dell 36s.

The 1.7 less its Weber 40s is now on E-Bay.

The salvaged 1.7 engine is going into the black 1.5 series II I bought earlier this year - covered in the thread 'Another 33 Series II Resto - Black this time' until I can afford to get the 16v sorted. All good fun.
