This car meant to get fixed but we got stuck with getting loan of parts needed for testing :(
So the decision has been made and the lancer getting new heart! A Mivec Heart!!!

Had a go at it a few times yet and have decent progress:
Basically the whole lot (engine, box, subframe, steering rack, hubs) is out.

Image

Image

Finally got it out!

Image

Up ya go!

Image

Image

Da bottom!

Image

By, by 1.3 engine!

Image

And the gearbox:

Image

Engine bay nearly empty to get it painted, Gerry done a good bit of work on his car preparing it for primer I must admit!

Still a lot to do left:
