Hi Guys and Girls,
Im nearing the completion of the car restoration and as ive lost the engine number that came with the car (old owner) and its not currently in my name i have been advised by road transport that i need to fill in the new owner paperwork with the new engine number and go down to a branch of vehicle inspections for them to witness the new engine number.
What i was afraid of was when i went i got the engine number verified and they saw that it was not a standard 2T but a 2TG i.e. is a twin cam with twin carbs and extractors they may say -- "sorry mate, that engine is not allowed -- you need to fill in this form and come back to Regency to go over the pits."
Due to this i sent off paperwork to vehicle standards to see if i could put in the twin cam without going over the pits.
The reply was to state that i can now put in ANY 1600cc twin cam with carbs, however, need to go over the pits.
Are they just trying to raise more revenue or isnt a twin cam allowed in the car without their approval..?
Sorry for the long read but would appreciate what i legal -- thanks for any advice -- Cheers..
