Before the engine comes out, there are a few parts I will need, can anyone confirm that these may be obtainable and suggest where I should try? Track rod e...

Re: Two Ambassadors

Hello Mike
Sorry for delay in replying.
PMR is on my drive and as Simon mentioned XWD is in a barn at present.
The engine for PMR is about to come out today and refurbishment is restarting hopefully!
Cheers Jon
