Thought I'd give a quick update on the restoration of my 1303.
Since I last posted anything on here I've been gathering parts and panels in readiness for when the work commences, which will hopefully be fairly soon.
I've also been busy stripping the car interior and disassembling the replacement engine.
This will be my first complete engine rebuild, in the past I've done a top end rebuild, but never split the case.
As previously mentioned the engine is from a later 1300cc 1303.
I'm going to get the case align bored by John Maher, along with the bottom end balanced and some mild head work. I've already got 1641 b&p, Engle 110 cam, and some used parts twin 34 ict carbs and a Turbo Thomas merged stainless exhaust. I'm hoping to achieve around 70-80BHP,basically just something to keep up with modern traffic.
Here's some photo's of where I'm currently at with the engine :
Also removed the original manufacturer's tags from the front valance, as this will be replaced.
