Pinto Engine

Postby 103keef » Fri Aug 30, 2019 10:25 am

Looking for a Pinto Engine.
Not worried about cc as it's just for temporary use while my other one is being rebuilt.
Obviously would need to be a good runner but ancillaries not necessary as I have those already.
Wiltshire/Berkshire area would be preferable but can travel a little further for the right engine.

I've a re-con 2ltr pinto that's only run for 20mins if you're interested!
Will be much cheaper than doing yours...

Hi, £300 for the engine.

It's wrapped up in the back of my garage.
I haven't any pics but I don't really know what a pic will show you!
New or knackered they all look the same from the outside!!!

I've just looked at the prices on ebay so..

I think £300 is far too cheap.

Don'f buy one of mine.
