Is my GTV dead!!! :-(
Bought my 53 plate GTV about 18 months ago and after having the head skimmed, new rad, new bushes all round, tires and abot 3k of work I started to get the oil pressure light come up when on idle... Have taken it to local garage who have tole me the bottom bearings have gone so either need a new engine or new shaft and bearings. Either way it's gonna be 1.5K - 2K... This is a shocker as I've so tried to keep her alive, Alfie has cost me close on 6K already but this is probably where I have to stop.
Anyone got any ideas how I can keep her alive, cheap reliable engine rebuild or replacement or do I go get the parts and try myself (I can't even hold a spanner let alone change a spark plug). Am I best to try to rebuild the engine, if so where is the best place to go?
So disappointed that it's come to this as I love the car and have done all I can to keep her running as she should be, but after such a large outlay of cash I've run out and don't think I can do any more......
