Dutton Kit Cars and their owners

Been squirreling away a few idea's and parts the last few weeks. Even bought a rusty MX5. So thinking now about a small engine. Like a fiesta 1400 or these 1.25. The easy way is the MX5 engine and box, plus maybe a narrowed MX5 back axle assembly. The mixer is 1800 5speed and a slip diff. Been welded poorly in all the places they rust, but goes really well. Almost a shame to break it up. So back to small engines, any input?

It is going in a B type, which will be small and light, I hope

@ James, still hoping to keep it symmetrical, the next few days will reveal if possible. Pedal box and gearbox bell housing interfere at first attempt, Looking at remaking (again) the clutch pedal and brake pedal offset.

never mind the kit car, I've dropped the Saab sump and cleaned out the pick up, fitted new breather hoses, new filters plus a decent glugg of oil and its ready for winter,

           Aah! I see I need some new rubber bits on the wheels and the front disc look a bit ruff too. How can I spend money on the B type when the tin top needs fettling ? Stupid cars, these modern cars are a pain to maintain, need eyes on your finger tips just to see where it all is. Good job its not raining.............YET :-)
