Part 3: 1960 Standard Ensign

Dismantling Starts

As reported in my first blog, three stuck exhaust valves, scuppered any chances of getting the Ensign’s 1670cc engine to start up. So, one of the first dismantling jobs was to remove the dynamo, distributor, coil, starter motor, water pump, exhaust downpipe and silencer, manifolds and propshaft. The engine itself however would have to remain in situ until HMC’s workshop manager returned from holiday when proper lifting gear could be made available. 

Lots of items awaiting removal                 Exhaust and manifold removed

Next time – engine out and the doors come off.
