I bought this 18~ months ago out of a running 17 that rust ate. It has sat in my shed on a stand waiting for the 12 to be ready. Since then I've moved home, and now looking for work in Sydney.
The reality is, if no one buys it, I'll tie it into the back of the 12, put some roof wracks on top and tie the other spares on it, before I attempt to drive it up to Sydney.. (other spares at the moment just include 5 x 13" wheels. I suppose I can sit them upright and run a strap within them)
I confess I don't really want the hassle, I'm ultimately going to be better served buying one (if I get around to it) up there. My partner wont be able to help me lift it out of the car when I arrive, our neighbours are old Chinese grandparents, and I don't want to impose on fellow froggers I'm yet to meet.
Engine is complete with engine mounts, clutch, flywheel, exhaust, inlet manifold, webber, dizzy. It's even still got socks in the inlet / outlet and even some oil fell out of it yesterday. You can keep the socks. Dump it in your 12 / 15 / 17.
$300~ and you can have the engine stand. (I paid $600 for the engine 18m~ ago)
This engine has the water pump up the back of the block (gearbox end), and no sprocket at the front, so I suppose this block was was shared with the 16 at some point too?
Located in a garden shed next to some old boxes in Croydon.
