Anyone with any experience of this engine ?

Good for turbocharging as the parts are off the shelf. It was a better engine design than the earlier N & M16 engines for which some parts are getting difficult to find.

I don’t see any crime in buying a clean car, if was retired like most on here, then I’m sure my 4/4 would be dirty underneath due to the midweek driving.

At the moment with my work, I’m only getting out on a weekend, but If I’m honest I do choose dry days.

I will post some dirt in 16 years time when I retire....

I had a 97 car for 7 years. It is the silver & blue two tone that appears on the banner photo slide show.
I fitted a librands manifold & exhaust plus a panhard rod & SSL front end.
A great car but the ECU can fail.

Hi purchased my Morgan in April 2017, and I drive it weekends when I get the time, I don’t really bother going out in wet weather. However, I do enjoy driving it on them cold crisp sunny mornings (if no salt on the roads)

I can honestly say I have never washed it since ownership,

The annual service is due in March, so things could be about to change if the heavens open up.

- I do go out in the wet stuff, but have only rinsed the car off when some crap from the house gutters being cleaned fell in the wrong place...

I’m off to Williams Automobiles on the 13th March (my 50th birthday, so I’m catching up with the rest on here?)

It will be a service and my first M.O.T (m.o.t isn’t due until 13th May, but I decided to bring it in line with the service)

I’m also having a few more upgrades added, to make it less weedy 🤔

1) Panhard Rod Kit
2) Break Reaction bars

These upgrades come well recommended on here, so they are now on the list.

I hope I will notice the difference? ....,even though I do not drive it like I stole it !
