1.9 waterboxer for sale

Postby 123-jn » 12 Feb 2018, 18:00


This is my spare engine. When I first had my van this is the engine it had. After a year I had head seal leaks. I stripped it down and changed the following whilst cleaning everything up.
New Camshaft aftermarket 3 rivet
Crank was almost unworn, it was polished and new mains, thrusts and big ends were fitted. Conrods were checked for roundness. Small ends were within tolerance.
The bores were honed and new rings were fitted.
The heads were cleaned and valves lapped, 4 new head studs fitted.
The engine was reassembled with a new oil and water pump. new gaskets etc. SS nuts and bolts
At this point it went in my van and trundled around for two years doing just under 18000 miles on LPG on its Auto gearbox.
As luck would have it I found an DJ in bits and began to build this for the van . As soon as I had done this I switched the engines.
I decided to keep the 1.9 as a spare and decided to solve a couple of little issues I had been having. One head had loose valve guides now , the other had a crack.
I stripped the whole 1.9 down again , fitted non stretch big end bolts as I had always worried about the reuse of those.
The bearings were all lovely so no need to change any.
An AMC head replaced the leaking one (new inlet valves)
The other head was treated to new valve guides and inlet valves.
The engine was rebuilt using new gaskets and there it sat for the last year.
I am selling the engine minus a flywheel as I needed the flex plate on mine. Also minus the rocker shafts as ditto!!!
It has big mouth pushrod tubes, a set of lifters which by now will need filling (I never liked these they were from TES) It has a water pump and oil pump and has had a coat of racing green.
I now have the bits to build an MV as a spare but need the cash for this and I don't need 3 engines.
£700 OVNO send a PM if you are at all interested.
