Item specifics

Condition: For parts or not working Type: Engines & Components
Intended Use: -- Subtype: --
Manufacturer: Morris Model/ Series: Morris

During a recent clear-out I came across this long forgotten engine, it is a side valve unit, as can be seen from the pictures it also has a gearbox with it. I can't remember where it came from, but I had an austin 8 once, so it might have came from that, or If i remember correctly it was removed from an early Morris Minor Split screen.


Parts are as seen in the photos, but it isn't complete as the crankshaft isn't here, and there might be other bits missing.

Basically , A block, some pistons, A gearbox, Cylinder head , A starter motor etc.

Is this of any use to anyone ?? I don't want to scrap something that be useful to somebody, I know how hard some parts are to find !!.

Very low start price just to cover costs. Buyer must collect, or we could post but please ask for a price first, as it is likely to be expensive due to the total weight.

Any questions phone Tim on 01249 721350 or E-mail
