Nice! If you weren't in Ireland I'd see if you were interested in painting my van!

Well I toasted the motor there a while back. eek mad blush frown crazy cry curse rolleyes

The alternator bracket came loose and lost drive on the water pump belt, it overheated and ate the bearings.
I'm going to look at a possible replacement motor tomorrow, if it's good I'll fit that and and rebuild the current one over the winter.

Meantime...
I put the fiberglass sun visor back on today.
It was too flimsy for my liking before so I took it off and strengthened it underneath with carbon fibre rods and repainted it. I re-mounted it today using riv-nuts and stainless allen screws. The support brackets I added to the A-pillars are two old aluminum coat hooks that I re-shaped and drilled to suit. It's nice and secure now.

Looks good!
Those Rivet Nuts are great for mounting cabinets inside as well.
Good luck on the engine search.

So I bought this yesterday...... A GM Targetmaster 350. This is what I've found out about these motors. Before GM called their crate engine Goodwrench they were called Targetmaster. They were mainly Mexican made blocks but this one has engine code VK132800 so should be Flint Michigan motor. Should be a 4 bolt block and HP should be in the 200-250 range. My block casting number is 14016379
The engine was being used to power a fire engine at a regional airport so should have been well maintained and has only 13,500 miles on it. It was last run 6 years ago but stored in a dry shed with oil in it. Hopefully it lives up to it's promise but time will tell as I start to get into it. Came with a Holley carb and intake, a Mallory dizzy and trans is a TH400 I think.
