sunbeam motor?

Recommended Posts

is there any difference between the 912 motor and the 911 fitted to the sunbeam? looks like the sump is a bit different, but i am guessing the guts are the same?

was thinking about a slow performance build whilst still running about in the car as it is

For what its worth, the engine in the Sunbeam has a 2172cc capacity as standard. I know my Esprit is 2174cc....but I've no idea which dimensions changed to make the 2cc difference.
