A Marcos moves

After what seems like endless delays, the Mantula finally left it’s hiding place of the last fourteen years. ¬†At 9:30 this morning Steve from Island Classics arrived with his truck and trailer. In no time it was loaded up and driven away.

The next stage will happen on Monday. With the car at Island Classics, Steve will remove the old 3.5 litre V8 and drop in the 4.6 litre unit. This will be a trial fit for clearances. I hope I don’t have to make too many changes, but there may be a problem with the serpentine belt tensioner interfering with the steering universal joint.

With new engine in place the Marcos will be transported to Bembridge where the real work can begin.
