Practical Classics have an occasional series with double page spread photos of stripped engines.  Next month is a Flavia (or perhaps its really a 2000....?)

Ah I forgot about this project! Did you get your engine back nicely cleaned and packaged?

I confused "next TIME" with "next month" and got over excited...  I've seen the photo and a layout and am pleased with it.  My challenge now is to find space (and get "planning permission") for a poster of it on the wall somewhere.

David have you got the bits back yet?

I liked the draft and think a poster is a great idea.

Not got the bits back yet as I'm wanting to go and visit - he's got a BIG collection - and the stars have yet to align.  Had a couple of stabs at it over the summer.  Had wanted to go to the VSCC cotswold trial at Prescot but that's not going to work for me now.  If I want it back "soon" then they'll courier it.  His business is storage and his workshop bigger than most quick fit branches so I'm not fretting its in his way...

...there is also the question of how much of it is any use to me with a 1965 car...or if its worth anything to anyone else...

In terms of condition one cam had seized but with no damage to the cam or housing and just the bearing to replace.  Other than that little wear but a lot of coke.

One other fault - and condition report from the horse's mouth:

"Itís in quite a good state, aside from heavy carbon build-up and a snapped inner valve spring. Iíd go for relatively low-mileage but owned by someone who didnít thrash it enough."

"...this afternoon I found a more significant fault: one of the rear camshaft bushes had seized to its cam journal and was spinning in the crankcase. Happily, itís eroded itself rather the crankcase."

It shouldn't take too long to put back together if you have the bits (bearings, gaskets, rings etc).

Might be fun to do and it is much more useful/valuable as a complete , potentially running unit - but will it actually fit the Sport ?

And it has the "fame" value !!
