1500cc Rebuild

Post by BusBoyT2 »

I have the original engine for my bus under my bench in the garage. I want to get it rebuilt so I can re install it in my bus. many many moons ago it dropped a valve (yes on No.3) hence it was pulled and replaced (by a bigger cc engine)

I will be using the bigger engine for something else so need to get the 1500cc sorted.

I recently purchased some good used 1500cc heads which I intend to use.

Can someone recommend a person who could rebuild the "long block". I assume this would need completely going through, machining where required and new parts as required.

Any thoughts? (I'm in Essex)

Thanks
