Two Marinas, this one parked and another in motion that I couldn’t photograph:

SST & Sabre Records

Thanks Ben, 2198 was an incomplete car bought by GW. He presumably stripped it for spares as I was offered the chassis by a third party many years ago, but passed it onto Viv White who bought it. Not sure but I presume he took it to France with the rest of his cars when he moved.

Big End Shells bearings

Only you (and your budget) can decide where to stop - gaskets only or machining, crank bearings, piston rings, oil pump, oil pump drive, water pump, camshaft, camshaft bearings, clutch - £300 or £1300?

And I don’t think I’d fit poly bushes to the rear trailing arms on a road car.

Cologne camshaft gear change

Low revs and you “might” get away with it - I’ve heard of bent valves at tickover cold.

AUTO BOX ?

If you’re 100% sure that it’s not overfull (which is what it sounds like to me), then the TC is at fault. I’m not sure if it can be repaired (because I’m not sure where the oil could be draining from) or if it needs replacement - but sealing the box to stop it leaking isn’t a proper cure IMHO.

Do you mean an alternative to the existing reverse/neutral switch, or a source for originals?

Some people claim that the Cologne is not an interference engine. Those that have had to replace valves, disagree.

Oh - and the Delahaye has hand controls as the French owner/driver is in a wheelchair (he was in his similarly equipped 356 last year).
