The Cabriolet gets it’s new engine and after a few minutes cranking ,bursts back into life!.
A short movie showing the engine removal .
New Pistons installed ,side covers and sump fitted ,note: the deck has been machined to ensure it’s flat and true.
Head is reassembled with all new Valves. The valve heads were pitted from corrosion and machining them would have made the valve head margins too thin.
Cylinder head, water pump, and distributor drive fitted .Timing chain was replaced with a superior Iwis Chain,the one in the pic was just used to help install the new chain.
Accessories added and nearly ready to install in the car.
