    Luv2, I continue to follow your most interesting thread! Do have a question, since I am not familiar with MG's,.........the broken clevis mount on the tranny: what is this clevis that mounts here actually for?

    Crossflow head with some huge exhaust ports! Wonder why they didn't design an individual runner system for the intake, versus using the siamesed ports? Still, a really neat piece. Did he send you any pics of the combustion chambers Bernie?
  3. Steady progress! Looking forward to more updates - this is one of my favorite threads.

    Heavy duty stand! What is the approximate weight of that engine?
  5. This is the type of project I love. Neat car, especially the family history. And that interior looks really nice. Looking forward to more updates!

    I'm always meeting people who are recently retired and they ask what I do to stay busy. My response is always that I have so much to do that I still go back to work a couple of days a week to rest! Seriously, it amazes me how many 'retired' people say they are so bored with nothing to do. I invite them over to scrape grease off car parts and beadblast parts but no one has taken me up on that. We all enjoy following your progress and challenges Bernie. Thank you for your posts!!

    I have the same problem Bernie, and I'm only 60+ Looking forward to the next round of pictures. Sounds like you are making good progress.

    Nice Martin! Progress feels good, huh?
  9. Are those the 'before' pictures?

    Bernie, I'm glad you reconsidered and are continuing with the Fiat! Should we assume, since the head is on the engine, that you successfully sourced the head gasket?

    The bond between a boy and his dog.......there is nothing else like it. I fondly remember the dogs of my childhood.

    Bernie, I hope Helen's recovery from her hip surgery is going well. Hopefully she will be ready for touring in the Lagonda when Spring comes to the Southern Hemisphere. Please tell her hello from your friends on the AACA forum!
  14. Bob40, there seems to be a lot of confusion about the asking price of this Darrin. The picture says $3,000.00 but others have claimed to have talked to the "owner" and report that the price is really $30,000 Can you clear this up?
  15. Very nice work! The new technologies are awesome as far as what can be done, especially on one-off or small runs of parts.
