Looks like i can kiss my GTV goodbye.
Just had used engine fitted to my gtv, started ok apart from a bit of a tappety noise, possibly sticking valves due to the engine been stood. Ran it for a few journeys still noisey, no compression on 2 cylinders, mechanic did wet /dry compression test, piston rings he said. People who supplied engine (don't ask who) took car to sort problem. Now am told timing was not done correctly, and the valves are bent. Back in touch with mechanic, no way he said the timing was spot on, car was sweet ticking over, There was also oil coming up the dip stick (crank case pressure). so back and forth i am going passing messages on.
anyone got any thoughts as to what to do next, i got no money left to spend on this.
at the moment feel like walking away and letting them keep the car.
