Hi all i am testing the water to see if there are any turbo diesel`s or NA diesels up for sale and at what sort of price as i may be thinking about replacing mine or if i can find a cheap one with a shot engine then doing a transplant but the transplant option would be a last resort I am still waiting for contact from 425cc is best who is offering a athena for free but i am waiting to find out if it is diesel or petrol but he hasnt been back on yet.

Yes it looks great now, and it has most of the best BX bits on it anyway.

Sleepy, I`m a little confused by your post but if you`re after a diesel engine I`ve one here which you can try out first, it`s a 1.9 n/a and pulls very well. You can also have any other bits you need to go with it if you`re doing a conversion including any electrical gubbins plus of course alternator and starter etc.

does your engine leak oil as mine is peeing oil out of the cam seal and cam cover despite all my efforts at fixing the cam cover it still leaks i have replaced the gasket and the cover but it still leaks and the cam seal i havnt even looked at yet but got to do it soon as its getting worse, what i was doing was seeing what was available out there so i could possibly get a cheap runerround while i pull mine of the road to do the list of jobs that want doing and change the interior over.

No! It runs very well engine wise and you can take it for a good test drive first. You can take the whole car (if you want it) and drive it home though MOT expires any day now if it hasn`t already, but it`s taxed until end of Feb. I`m confident in the engine and in fact I`m quite probably going to go to Kent in in in the next few days if MOT hasn`t expired. I could deliver to you for the fuel costs if neccessary.
