Advice needed: shot bottom end on GTV
Just need a little advice...
My GTV has a shot big end bearing on cylinder 1. I thought I might get away with a set off shells - but it has gone again straight after.
My options are as follows
Sell the car as a project - is there much appetite for cars that need engine work. How much could I expect to get for it?
Repair the engine, remove crank, regrind and new shells. Is there any way the crank can be removed without removing the engine? Is there enough room to move the gearbox to achieve this?
Scrap the car and sell it bit by bit... How much could I expect to get for various parts...
Any thoughts/ideas would be gratefully received... the car is 98 on an S, twinspark, lovely unmarked tan interior (exterior Proteo Red), teledial wheels. Mileage is 90K.
Car is on stands in the garage with the sump off - time isn't an issue as I have other vehicles.
