Got a mate who ruined his 1.7 8V carburator engine.

He wants me to find him another engine, 1.7 or larger capacity (1.8), but again running or carbs.

Anyone got one for sale ?
Needs to be 1.7 8v with carbs.
fast cams or larger pistons will do :D

I have one... located near Cambridge (UK)... It has not sun for a couple of years but should be good... a pair of delorto 40's avaliable on request too.

Out of interest I also have a 1500 which I'd let go at the right price, it has done 8 races last season and puts out around 140bhp :D

Its going to be for street use

Greg, the engine is totally scrapped.
It needs pistons, a piston rod, crank and a cylinder head.
The engine was left without any oil and he was pushing it hard to the rev limit for a long time.

We found a 1.7 8v engine in Cyprus which is injection and he doesnt want it. He wants carburators and higher performance.
Rodger, your 1.5 sounds nice if its bringing out 140.
What about the 1.7 ? Is that stock ?
Could you please tell me what mods they have ?

The 1.7 8v is an unknown to me Chris, the crank turns so I suspect it's a good one.
The crank would turn even if there were no pistons in it :cheese:

Can you pm me with a price for the 1.5 then mate ?
Is there something wrong with it that needs attention?

Guys thank you all for the offers.

I just got off the phone with this friend of mine who wants the engine.

He asked me to search arround if we can also find a 16V engine with carbs laying arround.
What are the chances of one of those comming up ?

Did you get sorted OK? I will - eventually - removing my 1.7 8v from my Sprint but there are no anicilliaries (ie carbs, started etc etc) however this is still some way off. I have another engine to build up to replace it.

Do you know anyone who wants a full set of seats from a series 3 and a pair of painted series 3 bumpers?
