About bl**dy time......

Strangely I've just spent the day doing the same thing, the 500's now almost down to a bare rolling shell, race you......

I'm not sure I'm the looms going back in now its been ripped out, anybody out there good with electrics????

I'm looking forward to regular 'project 1108' updates. Give me a call if I can help in any way.

cheers nige as for the loom i took it out nice and gently and its now nestled up all snug and warm in the glove box!!! i am rewiring completely different lights and indicators in so i might still have to replace a good chunk of it! by the way i like your sump its looking very "gucci"!! ive been looking at guy crofts site and its making very interesting reading!hopefully i can start shutting up all the redundant holes in the car this week when it stops raining if not i shall be busy with the gearbox refurb.

Ditto, I've had a 1242 upgrade for the Sei on the cards for a while (just finding the time and funds) which will give me an 1108 with less than 30k on the clock to use. Keep us informed Mick :)

stupid question do you have to mod the 126 gearbox to accept a 1108?.. ie will it take the extra power?
one resprayed and another arrives- double trouble BIS style!!

ooh exciting, im looking forward to following the progress.
I still have an aircooled (other than my green one) waiting for some progress.  Only problem is just about every panel is rotten.  Good job i just learnt to weld!

no mods just an adapter plate to fit to engine but nothing done to the gearbox internals .

youd need an aircooled bellhousing to do it as it is here and you will have to cut the back up to get the engine in and it will be bloody noisy if you did it, if you put a bike engine in then you have to think lots about how your going to get the power to the wheels there was a car on ebay recently with a chain drive only problem is you drive that round corners and see what happens!! as for power its a standard cinq/sei sporting 1108 engine with a bigger carb so i will see when its in and goes to be set up properly on a rolling road.

Now that's an interesting one, afaik the 1108 has a throttle body with fuel injection rather than a carb (certainly the one in my Sei does). As far as power Stuey, they produce about 54bhp standard.
