Engine swapped & ready to collect

Published on July 31, 2011 by in Blog, MR2 Blog

After 6 long months and more money than I care to think about, my MR2 is ready for collection, I am going to get her tomorrow. I really cant wait to drive her again even though she will be needing a nice long run in.

MOT passed with only minor welding to the drivers side sill 😀 I was totally shocked tbh as being sat for nigh on 6 months I thought it would fail on more!
Full details of rebuild after the break

Here is the list of parts replaced:
big ends, main bearings
thrust washers
bottom end kit
full topend gasket kit
oil pressure switch
alternator belt
cam belt
oil pump

Still got a long list of work to do but as least I can take my time with them
