Hi Folks,

I have a fully rebuilt Twin cam engine for sale. The engine is a 701m (the hard one to find) SE Spec, which came from of a low mileage Plus 2 which was rear ended and went on fire. I purchased the engine which had been dry stored for 30yrs. The engine has been rebuilt by myself and I am a Motor Vehicle Engineer. The engine is on STD bores and STD 6 bolt crank. It is fully documented and photographed (I also have a video of it running in a spare chassis) It has new Lotus/Ford Pistons and all the usual other stuff (overhauled cylinder head with new guides and cut seats) and is fully balanced with a baffled sump. I have receipts for all the work carried out.
This is probably a unique chance to purchase a very sought after engine which is still standard.
You will notice from the attached picture that the cam cover is painted metallic blue this is because the engine was built as a spare for my 1964 S2 (which is soon to go up for sale) the correct colour for the cam cover was originally Red.

Offers in the region of ?4,000.00

The engine is situated near Edinburgh.

Should it not have been built with OEM Lotus Pistons ?

Ford ones are not suitable.

Phil Sorry I should have been more specific. The pistons were Lotus/Ford bought from miles Wilkins.
