Hello All, I'm hoping that some members could provide me with some advice and options relating to my soon to be arriving Mk2 Spitfire?
At some stage in the cars life, a Herald 1200 engine (GD115896HE) has been fitted, retaining twin carbs and the correct exhaust manifold (I think)
Ideally I would like to get the car back to original specification as I assume the bhp will be down?
I'm guessing that my options are:
1. Leave (GD115896HE) in the car as I wont be able to tell the difference in performance?
2. Try to secure a complete replacement FC 1147cc engine but I expect that these may be a little scarce?
3. Would I be right in saying that the Herald and Spitfire blocks are the same so I could get the engine rebuilt using a Spitfire Camshaft and Cylinder Head?
Any advice on the best course of action and that my vague assumptions are correct would be really appreciated.
On a non-engine topic, if anyone has any experience of fitting a brake servo and some uprated discs/calipers I would be interested in knowing whether this is an easy/useful modification
All the best
