Rebuilt goldseal engine

Post by Mgbman » Sun May 10, 2020 5:55 pm

Hi all,
I have recently rebuilt an mgb goldseal engine, and have it sat in my garage now ready for either sale or to fit it into a resto project or shell.

I'm not sure whether to sell it as is as at the moment cant find a suitable shell or project car at reasonable money to put it it.

Is anyone interested in buying it ? Or does anyone have a good mgb shell or project car ?

Let me know.

Mgbman

Can supply build pics and video of it running if email supplied ,!

Hi Tim,

I could be interested in the engine. Can you send more details / pictures please. Is it a 3 / 5 bearing, specification etc.
