970 reproduction engine

Post by agricola »

I really must de clutter.
Has anybody an idea what a recreation 999s rally engine is worth: properly machined early mg1300 engine with 970s rods etc and oldish MED head?

A former fellow competitor and friend (Mano Motorsport, now defunct) took a normal 1275 block, bought a billet 970 crankshaft from England and fitted polished S-cons and had the head skimmed down appropriately. Ready was a 999 cc race engine which he raced very successfully in the Zolder Classic Club Races and the Belgian ASAF-hillclimb-championship.
Stop making stupid people famous!
