  2. hi my number is o7731336660 i live near north duffield im not sure my pm worked that i sent you
  3. hello im in the york selby area,how much would you want to have a look?
  4. thanks for the replys.,so now youv got me thinking if i were to get the engine from elise parts which comes without anccilerys i could inadvertantly be putting a defective part onto it and end up at square one .i just dont want to be talked into work being supposidly done that i could fix myself cheaper and more thurerly,when you factor everything in i thought £850 engine swap sounded the best plan considering im skint.even ifit is a simple internal part means a cambelt,gasgets,pluss any other hidden costs that would no doubt appear. im i on the right lines with the simple diy swap ??
  5. hi, not really and also i simply cant afford it,so will be doing the work my self and since i feel it would be less stressfull,easyer to do a engine swap than to split the head ect,, allso im not confident to do seriouse engine work, is elise parts a good shop and will there re ferbed motors be spot on? .im scared ,
  6. ok i think il call it quits trying to get it to "free its self off",im going to take just the top cover off and see if any thing stands out as mashed.i just want to know what it is before i order a recon engine.what special tools will i need to swap the engine,engine hoist and torque wrench i know,any thing else?,with the rear clam off is it a easy enough job?.also engine comes with kno anccillerys,is it easy to swap these,i take it thats the gbox.manifolds ect..
