I am restoring a 120L Estelle from 1989. The engine has two seized and rusted cylinder liners resulting from head gasket failure before storage by previous owner. I have spent five year acquiring a massive stock pile of new spare parts in order to fully restore the car to concours stock condition. However I have been very unsuccessful in obtaining new cylinder liners (72mm) and piston sets and also big end and main bearings (45 mm and 55mm) If anyone has any contacts please let me know, I have tried Ostt-timer and skoparts in Germany and skoda-parts in Czech Republic but all only have 130 liners in stock and none can source me any 120 items. I would consider a replacement engine, ideally 120 but any serviceable RWD engine would do. If anyone has such an engine for sale please get in contact. I can collect when this lock down is over! Thanks for reading. Andrew

I get the liner part number to be 113 000 301 and these people say they have two http://www.km.krakow.pl/113000301,3,51343,12320 . Rings don't seem to be an issue https://www.autodoc.co.uk/goetze-engine/8287285 , I get the piston as being 113 090 201 for the lower compression mode; and 114 090 200 for the R high compression version but I am coming up blank on those plus the 113 000 311 and 114 000 310 cylinder liner and piston kits. http://www.ajusa.es may be able to help you with a gasket set.

Agreed

Yes totally agree. The only slightly amazing thing about the new mini is how they have managed to incorporate heritage BL rust underneath and wet carpets into the postmodern packages!

Agree about VAG as well, last year I completed a full nut and bolt restoration of a 1985 T3 transporter , 1.9 water boxer. Not many T3 campers are concours as they get used and abused, but not this baby almost stock spec, apart from SS exhaust and modified engine bay rear panel. A few repair panels and a full repay in original colour including underside. The suspension was in excellent condition for 35 years in age, everything came apart easily with just a clean up and stove enamelling of arms etc. I will find a photo and post. Cheers Andrew

I do the full range of Powerflex suspension bushes for the T3 and thank God I did not have to lecture you about calling a T3 a T25...:D I have built a couple of warmed DG engines, converted to 2.1 and the Weber carb conversion which together give a huge torque boost.
