Thought It was time to start a build thread now that I have bought a G40 engine at last

Went all the way to Maidstone to collect it and came home with everything bar the shell

First thing that had to be done was to get rid of the old seats and replace with the comfy G40 ones.

Next was to start looking at parts i had bought home with me ( there was loads ) and dad was not impressed :(

I decided cos Iím not mechanically minded and seeing as my dad had already done an MI16 engine conversion on his Peugeot 205 that he would be the best bloke to help me of which i am very grateful Very Happy


Second job was to get the engine onto a stand ready to strip down

Nothing seems to be wrong with the engine but gonna strip it down replace parts and make it look shiny Smile

Then we took off the gearbox , supercharger , inlet and throttle body.

Head removed and everything is looking good so far
