Engine out easy enough to do clutch, remove heads have them skimmed, pressure tested etc. Cost of parts is the killer, I paid £180 to have heads done along with new oil seals etc, add on another £200 for gasket set,£250 for belts,tensioner and water pump. Solid flywheel and clutch £300,Quaife or Q2 another £500 plus and that is before labour charges.Worth checking out bottom end as well,running with water in the oil won't do the bearings any good. After all that you really won't want to find problems with chassis, bodywork,paintwork or suspension that is where the cost really begin to climb.
Vote muppet you will end up with one anyway
