R1 Engine

kit car parts for sale

Hi all,

I have an R1 engine for sale.

The original engine in my Phoenix developed a very slight tappiing sound from the top end, accompanied by a little excess crankcase pressure.

The experts all reckoned it was a cracked piston, apparently very common in R1s fitted to cars........

There was no noticeable lack of power or any other untoward symptoms, but I obviously couldn't carry on with it.

I bought a set of rods and pistons and fully intended re-building the lump.

However, impatience got the better of me and I went and bought another complete engine !

Consequently, the old engine and the wherewithal to put it right are languishing in my garage.

It's a 2000 year, 5JJ model, with a sump baffle, but no carbs or ancillaries.

The AIS has been removed and blanked off so all you'd need is a gasket set to complete the re-build.

The side covers are not in the best condition though, I swapped the nicest ones over to the replacement engine.

So, if anyone's interested in a cheap spare motor, I'm looking for £400 for the whole shebang.

You can even have my Haynes manual which covers the engine strip down in huge detail.

I'm in South Wales and will be at Llandow for the track day on Sept. 5th, only spectating alas, so I could fetch it along.

Cheers,

John
