Daihatsu F50 - Anyone got a spare engine for sale?


I bought the F50 Saxan Crusader advertised on these forums over the weekend unfortunately the engine seized before I had even gone 40 miles. The vehicle is in the garage now and I am awaiting their assessment of cost to put it right. (Gulps!!) Does anyone have an F50 engine in good working condition they might want to sell? Or does anyone know where I might get a short motor?

I'd like to get the old girl up and running again because she is quaint but I do not have unlimited cash to spend.

Any help would be appreciated.

I have a compleat engine sat

I have a compleat engine sat on the floor. It was all working fine when it cam out of it's previous home. More than that I don't know what state it is in.
£80 if you want it.
I'm in Dover, Kent. (07710 088162)
Aulternativly, there are quite a few 2.8 Terbo's come up on e-bay. One of these would go in with very miner modification.

Any veiws expresed in this thread by me are purely from my own experience, and (sometimes) falible memory. Hope my comments help, but please don't take them as gospel.
