I have to admit there are a lot of similarities there. I bought the car here in Saskatoon about 4 years ago, I believe. It was sold by, and still has a badge on the trunk, by Merlin Motors of Saskatoon. I have some paperwork showing the first owner lived in Saskatoon as well. I know of 4 former owne...

Thanks again, I have a couple of pictures here, if I've got it right. One showing a hole in the side of the head, I'm guessing that this is some sort of breather? The other is of a fitting on the oil pan, some sort of temperature sensor? http://www.enfostuff.com/forum/userpix/485_image_1.jpg http://...

Further to my previous questions, I am now the proud owner of a twin cam motor, the one on Kijiji from Cranbrook. I am pretty green here and will be asking many 'stupid questions over the next while. I have noticed a stamping in the head at the back of the motor which I am not sure has any significa...

Thanks again, very helpful. Last thing, the transmission out of my 1970 GT should go straight on, yes? I may have been wrong earlier when I though my current block was a 711. I will need to check again, I'm certain it's the original motor and transmission.

Thanks Brett, really appreciate your info. Is there an engine mount that will fit on the 711? maybe someone like Dave Beans will be able to help me there? Do you know of any other modifications I will need to make to successfully put this block in my MK2? I have my original tranny which I believe wi...

Block

So were they used in a Lotus Cortina, or just the 1600 Cortinas? I have come across a 'Lotus' fully built motor, head and all, and it has the number I mentioned?

K&N filter

Funny enough, thats the one I ordered from K&N direct, advertised to fit 1970 MK3, MK4 and MK5 1600GT ! And I just returned it because the mounting holes didn't line up. Thought about modifying it but thought I would try and get the correct one.
