    MGA 1600 engine

    I would appreciate information on sourcing of remanufactured MGA 1600 engines. I do not have a core.

    Team triumph has 1600 blocks for $80.00

    And I have a couple of striped heads you can have for shipping.

    Seriously....Don't be too concerned....They are all over.

    You should be able to get one cheap....
    (as in under $500 for a nice rebuild-able core)

    The biggest problem seems to be cranks....They are drying up for some reason.

    Well, this guy advertises that he could do a complete rebuild. I don't know him or his work, but I would guess someone here would. Maybe he could source a core....thst would go for other quality rebuilders- they sometimes have sources the rest of us do not.

    also, I've never heard anything but good about University Motors.

    I noticed that you were in Missouri. I have a 1600 block here at the house. It is bare but could either be used as a core or to build. I am located 25 miles north of KC and I am willing to crate and ship if you need it to be. $75 for the block.
    As far as the rebuild goes, there are a couple of guys here in the local club that can do this for you. They operate MG repair shops now from home.

    Midwest British - welcome to the Forum!

    Is that you, Joe? Did I buy my TR8 from you a while back? (Don't worry - it's all good!)
