$13,000 for an engine overhaul, just parts?? .. you mean $1,300 don't you?!? I recently refitted my engine ('67 BJ8) after i fully overhauled it: around A$3,000 in parts and machining (i didn't charge myself for my own labour, naturally.

Ahhhhh, nope that's correct 13,000 $$$$
The price for stronger forged internals are crazzzy
Please remember the only thing that was recycled from this engine build was the original engine block
Everything from the aluminum oil sump to the aluminum Dennis Welch roller rockers which are beautifully covered by the aluminum valve cover has been replaced...
My engine has gone through a severe weight reduction regimen
.....And 'No' I havn't included any of my billable time to this project...

1959 Austin-Healey 3000 BT7 "Money Pit"
Just purchased an engine from USA, straight six from a dealer on EBAY. GOING TO PUT IT IN A BT7 1960 Which i bought with a Rover SDI ENGINE FITTED !!!!

Car was reimported into GB (1990's) with an american V8 fitted (Buick.) this was out of breath and puffy, so thats when the Rover engine was installed as a replacement, 1996.
I have contacted the person who done the engine and fitting work. He and i have spoke about this car.

I like originality and stock vehicles so the V8 grated my soul.

The question is can any one out there give me any history on this car and engine.

Engine number, 29 D/ RUH 2541. Chassis body number, HBT 7/ 6881.
Would be obliged, John L.

Wow - I expect it is not cheep!! Certainly is quite different. My polished aluminum "no-name" cover pales in comparison.
