(no evidence on the outside but...) If this is to be an engine rebuild as
well as restoration then frankly it is way past my expertise, I can do the
surface engine work but the deep world of big-ends and crankshafts  are the
domain of others far more experienced (and expensive!) so i think its time to
move on...  .I will part out the car  >>

Woah, Mike!

There are some of us out here that ain't afraid of no frozen engine.  Someone
may even have a good engine suitable for the cause.  I myself am currently
rebuilding an engine that was frozen up, had to beat the pistons out with a
large wooden drift and a very heavy hammer.

>From your description the car sounds restorable.  What say Mike?  Before you
start parting out that MGBGT, what do you want for the whole thing as is?
