16/6 front engine casting wanted

Post by Humphrey47 » Sat Apr 07, 2018 10:12 am

Just about to hoist the engine into the chassis when I noticed a crack on the front support where it goes through the chassis. I need a replacement. Anyone got one? I have a spare crank, block, case and main bearings (undersize) can also re-metal Babbitt with 16/6 tooling.

Hi, sorry for taking so long....I am not sure what the difference between "monobloc engine of seperate" means? I have inserted adverts for a head EVERYWHERE!!!!

The early ones have an aluminium crank case with a separate block. The head is different for later 16/6. Try an enquiry on the Facebook Austin 10 owners group. There was a pile of 16/6 stuff last year.
