Re: Removal of Tailgate

I’ve removed a couple so if we can find a time I could pop over to lend a hand as it is definitely a 2 person job. Half term break is not too far off so that could be a possibility

Not a tech, especially when it comes to 16v but I would of thought that the basic block, head, etc are the same which is the key bit if replacing a smoker.

Ancillaries May be different, but you could just swap these off the old engine.

Re: Breakdown
