  1. It’s been opened up and spot faced for 1776 and I have brand new barrels and pistons to go on.
    Need to get the heads opened up to match and adjust the combustion cc along with a slight bit of porting.

    It should be a night and day difference from the knackerd old lump that used to drag the bus around.

  6. This seems to be my take on Vege .
    Fitted a 1600 back in '92 . Despite my abuse it covered over 100k miles and was still pretty good when I exchanged it for Robert Parry recon a couple of years ago . Could have got another Vege but things have changed and they no longer recon under one roof , it's become a franchise sort of thing .
    I got In early before he got too busy

  7. Robert Parry seems to have fled the nest, is he still in business?
  8. Trouble with most rebuilt engines on the market is that you don't, in most cases, know its previous history.
    Bus engines work hard for a living and die pretty traumatic deaths a lot of the time.
    These dead or crippled engines are then rehashed and sold on as good ones!
    I thank my lucky stars, that I'm still on my original engine after its been overhauled.

  9. There can’t be much money in re-conning old aircoolers these days. Vege better off doing Fords, GM, etc.

  10. I believe a close family member is unwell so work has taken 2nd place
  11. Vege build the Vege engines
    I don’t think they do ... Vege themselves build them
