Friend of a friend had 3 Trumph 1296cc engines in his workshop. They all turned over easily enough. He only wanted about 50 quid each for them but he's not in Scotland at all sadly.   I can still ask?

To be honest for that sort of money I could probably afford to one transported in some fashion...

I'm sure something can be sorted to get at least one of them (if they're still available) up to the Captain.

Can't you just stick one on a pallet and have it delivered, shouldn't be too expensive.

That relies on the seller being willing to stick it on a pallet and wait around for a courier.

Try Shipley courier website, I've used it loads of times, I got a engine and gearbox delivered from Dorset to South Yorkshire and it cost £110, that was a 2.0 dedra turbo engine as well so it weighed a bit.

I’d just accept that the car has had a good life and weigh/sell it. When the likes of the Bramz 518i can be bought for 400 quid - still a useful and pleasant/reliable car - fixing a rotten Dolomite with a fucked engine is futile.

I am minded to agree with the good Reverend, ultimately it's up to you but this would be an ideal time if you fancy a change and could still make some cash from the car.

I'm going to say scrap it too.

Not because I think it should be scrapped, but many said similar on your Acclaim. Then you went off, did a weldathon and got an MOT while it was still being debated on here what you should be doing with it.

So saying the same means it'll be fixed by teatime next Sunday... :D

It's a tough call.

 

You obviously like the small green Dolopshite and if we can get an engine up to you then it stands a fighting chance. I should hopefully hear over the next couple of days if he still has them or if they've been lobbed.

 

My own personal opinion is that every small Triumph saloon should be saved no matter what is irrelevant. Mostly due to the fact that I'm an idiot when it comes to small Triumphs. Current case in point.

This was listed a while ago, but worth enquiring about; 1200 herald engine in Clydebank for £40.

 

Could possibly help with collecting it.
