Triumph Spitfire - Engine Swap
|Hello all! I recently obtained a 1968 triumph spit mk3 and it's in need of a new engine. I was wondering if a Ford Crossflow 1500cc could be mounted in. I can assume it wouldn't be much larger than the current 1275cc engine. Thanks in advance!|
Not sure I can help you. I have no idea of a Crossflow engine dimensions. Later Spitfires had a 1500 cc engine so I would think you should be OK. If you have the engine you could size it up. The Spitrfire has a lot of room with the lifting front hood and can probably accomodate it.
I assume you would use the crossflow transmission as well.
Good luck with it.
