1641 SP Engine Turnkey and Complete

Post by 63CorvairSplit »

Hi,

I`m upgrading my bus to a bigger engine, so i have my old for sale.

Its a complete 1641 Single Port engine, turnkey and ready to bolt in - i literally just drove my van into the garage this afternoon, removed the engine and its ready to bolt straight in.

The only bit missing would be the front piece of tin which i need for my new engine. Also, the case is beetle/split case, so if you want to bolt it in a bay with a support bar, you`ll need one of the adaptors which bolts to the oil pump cover (about £15 i think).

If i`m honest, its bit oily with a couple of leaks and you can feel a touch of endplay when grabbing the flywheel - but it drove fine and powered my bus along well enough.

That said, it has a pretty much new clutch, petronix ignition, original (dirty) heat exchangers and an alternative colour tinware to standard if thats your sort of thing!


Video of it running -

Its pickup only from Weymouth, Dorset.

£850

Cheers, Mike

Alright matey? Loving the tinware:)
I'm always kinda freaked out when I see an engine running out of a car!

Hello - not bad thanks!

I've just finished building a 1915 for my bay - hopefully going in tonight or tomorrow:-)

Yes - tinware was painted that colour when bought it originally - Lamborghini orange apparently!

By the way - I might go to that show best Yeovil on Sunday if the weather is not too bad - drop me a message if you are and pop by and say hello.

Not sure if I'll be in the van or Cathy's golf - golf looking more likely at the mo!
