Could pass that motor for brand spanking new... Looks great. Well done.

I was lucky that box came on ebay when it did. Should have bought it when it was first on, and fitted before restoration completed. Hindsight is a wonderful thing.

Hi Peter, it was very noisy in 2nd and 3rd. It then completely went, could not select any gear, hence the Lowloader.
