I think that is a fantastic price for so much. However as the engine is in bits it might be worth detailing a bit more on what is needed to assemble and get it running. I have those exact stands, I'd be scared to put my whole weight on them, far less a car

So the engine was bought complete by me from ebay as an 80k miles running but "Burning oil" condition I didnt hear it running.

It arrived complete on a pallet with quite a few ancillaries (injectors, coil etc)

my intention was to strip it down clean it up re-ring it and run it as is.

so i carefully dismantled and arranged all parts in order in their boxes etc and visually inspected for wear (didn't see anything obviously concerning but again didn't exactly taken a micrometer to any of the parts.) needless to say i was confident enough to send the block and head away for glass blasting (for vanity purposes more than anything ) and start to bbu parts

Whilst looking for replacement rings i found a seller (performance engine builder) who was removing the whole pistons/rings/rods from brand new crated engines which he didn't need thus i bought a set of those, i also purchased a Raceline Alloy sump and new Mains/thrust washers. and some millers assembly paste (all included)

the sump carries more oil than s standard sump and uses the Duuratec 2.3 oil pump which i had not yet bought.

I also had the flywheel skimmed (cant remember how much was taken off but bare minimum to just clean it up)

so for re-assembly i was going to check and measure tolerances and wear then buy new, head gasket and valve stem oil seals, may have bought a new cam chain (probably not...) new rod, big end and head bolts new crank /cam oil seals. the 2.3 oil pump and windage tray for the new sump and just
assemble from there.

I may have forgotten some details but happy to add any further details/pictures if needed.

Would you sell the quick rack separately?

Hi Jordan Thanks for the enquiry, at present i would like to keep it all together (my thinking is that someone could actually buy the lot and sell off the bits they dont want separately and make a tidy profit...

That said obviously If it sits too long without any takers as a Job Lot i may consider selling parts off separate and if i do i will be sure to U2U first.

Kind Regards
Craig
