Or has anyone got a good second hand one for sale?

Has anyone tried to polish out scratches, was it successful?

Re: V8 250 engine mounting

The engine No. is 7A series which is an earlier engine as it should be a 7K engine,

I found a 7K series engine for sale and the mounting bracket has been changed to accommodate the power steering, Have changed over Brackets and problem solved.
The attachment V8 mount7A.JPG is no longer available
