The photos show the front cross member modifications that were done to clear the sump and get the engine to the correct height, the engine and gearbox was bought off an internet auction site for £200, it had been rebuilt and never run, when we did eventually run it it was found to have been assembled dirty, sand grit etc was found in the oil ways and the crank bearings were scrap!!. We are now rebuilding the engine with new block, crank pistons etc. Putting this engine in the Herald was always going to be difficult due to the front suspension. Hope you members find this interesting.
