This is the car the heart transplant will be going into, I know it looks like a sorry old state, but really is a solid shell and its a 71', so tax exempt, woop woop.

Started stripping down the swift engine today. What a nightmare as there was two head bolts that were damaged, but managed to get if off in the end.

 

Here are some pics of the block, head and bores
