#1 3.8 race engine

Post by bill addison » Thu May 09, 2019 4:25 pm

Hi ,
The car I have is a 62 FHC ,the previous owner fitted a 4.2 in it ,I am looking to put it back to 3.8 ,will the head and sump from the 4.2 fit on a 3.8 block ? .
Any advice welcome to source parts new or second hand.
I am re building it to FIA homologation 34 for pre 63 race cars.
There are a lot of bits I need to sell or swap like vented discs and wrong calipers, Getrag gearbox, alloy wheels ,fuel tank, Glass will be changed to Lexion
regards
Bill
