Trike build officially start today!

I am picking up my freebie 2.8 V6 today. Comes with some +hp goodies too. First job will be to strip it down, check for damage as the sump is cracked, either weld up the sump or replace it and then make it shiny Will post picys for yaal





How long can i resist the temptation to drop a V8 in?

Picys as promised. I had planned to whip the sump off and check the bearings but took longer than planned to literally drag the pallet from his garden, round the side of the house, up a step and onto my truck.









Am i right in thinking this is actually a 2.9? Added bonus, sump is not cracked! Not sure why my mate was told that.

Yep it's 2.9 engine, the 2.8 runs siamesed exhaust ports.
