I have an engine crane that many other VX'ers have borrowed if that helps.


Also pistons and rods you can have.


I wonder if it could just be HGF , which you could fix with just taking the head off.

I would do a leak down to try and get to the bottom of it. When piston rings go is it suddenly or gradually? I would have thought it would be a gradual thing?

You can always sell the 6-speed box... :happy:

£4500 for a new engine and box is quite good really, can't be many of them floating around. At least you'd be buying maximum provenance that it will work!

Don't have the money for that unfortunately
