A 1600 engine which I think originated from a Humber Scepter, No B9250217. It turns over and seems OK. It has a PA1A double carburetter (same fitting as Weber 36), Alli head and aluminium valve cover but metal sump ALSO Gear box and overdrive which I assume comes off the above engine. I checked the solenoid out and it's ok. The lot cost me R3500.00. I would prefer not to split it up so if anyone is interested let me know. Barney 083 386 8202
