    Default WANTED: 17/15 motor

    I'm assuming these engines are hard to come by these days but if anyone has a complete engine, and maybe associate parts for a r12 conversion, bellhousing, mounts, etc. i would greatly appreciate you help in finding one.
    Cheers, Rory

    Hi Rory

    You are better off with getting a whole car that is complete, that way you will have everything you need and can also see how it all fits together.

    There is also many differences between the R12 and R15/R17 although there is many parts that are inter-changeable.
    Regards Col

    Hi Rory, Col is absolutely right - get a complete donor car.

    I have just done this to build our R12 Gordini replica, look up my post about rob and fred's R12 on this forum, that will give you a fair idea.

    Be aware that with the increased performance, you will also want better brakes and handling.

    So.... look for a TS17 complete! There was one for sale on AF a while ago in Sydney asking $700 - the 45DCOE webers are worth more than that.

    Go for it! PM me if you need any info.

    Cheers Fred.

    Thank's for the input guys, it's definately no immediate goal for me but sounds like an interesting project.

    I'm sure i'll find something to pick your brains with sooner or later. thanks!
