This evening with help from Toby we started to strip down the Ford D Series Motor – This motor had not been running for over 2 years. I was told when I purchased ANZAC that it had only done 3,000 miles since it was last serviced.
The worry was if and salt water had got in to it form where it appears she took on some water at some point in time.
So far the signs are all good with the bolts and various components all coming off relatively easily, the head was removed and she is looking in great shape. So it looks like we will be giving the motor a birthday and reusing her (big $ saving)!
We now need to remove the rusted bolts on the prop shaft to allow the motor to be lifted – looking forward to it!
