MG MGA - Current value of MGB engines
|Can you guys give me a band width estimate for the current market for a rebuilt 5 main MGB engine with a polished and ported head.|
Also includes a clutch at bell housing.
|I paid $500 for a supposedly professional rebuilt 1800 5 main at a swap meet in Portland three years ago. It did not have $300 in porting, nor a clutch. It did have some issues that I had to resolve including an incorrectly installed distributor, an incorrect water pump, grade eight head nuts which stripped studs, a casting lump that interferred with the starter, and a loose nut on top of one tappet.|
But it does have some extra oomph.... and an oil leak.
