Hi just some advice please on storage, I'm currently going to have my engine rebuilt goes on Friday my question is when I get it back it will probably needed to be stored for a while before I get to fit it. Any thing I should do to protect the engine ?? or just leave in garage ??

Can I suggest delaying having it built until the car is more or less ready for it to go in.
Fresh machined surfaces don't usually store too well and then there's warranty issues - if you need to claim on that at a later point.
Best fitted as soon as it's received and driven right away.

Hi Keith Calver is doing the work and has offered to do two dyno sessions one before and one after running in ?? so the engine is ready to drive. The reason why this is the only opportunity at the moment to get the engine up to York. Next will be the re-spray so really the engine should have bedded in ok and not freshly machined as per Moke .

Early in 1940, because it consumed so much petrol, my grandfather wrote to the manufacturer and asked their advice, other than removing the battery, about laying his car up for the duration.
A gallon can of Glycol was dispatched, together with instructions from Rolls Royce that the engine should be cranked through half a turn each week.
