Twin cam engine wanted

PostPost by: tonyabacus » Sat Sep 18, 2021 12:57 pm

Looking for a twin cam engine either complete or bottom half for an S4 Elan, but not a four bolt as I am trying to get somewhere near the correct period depending on what may be available

Hi Sonunet
Thanks for the response, unfortunately there is a lot of water between us as I am based in the UK, so may not be economical to ship to me here.
But if you want to post what you have as a follow on, I am sure there will be others who will be interested
Thanks again
Tony

Also, Tony Ingram [[email protected]] has [or had as of August] several bare blocks & and/or could also build up any short block or complete engine you may want. He has years of experience w/TwinCam engine, street spec & full race, with a stellar reputation. He operates out of Santa Barbara, California. [You can mention me, but he may charge more if you do.]
[Usual disclaimers, just a satisfied customer]
just looking for clues at the scene....
