Hi Trevor, names Bill, from Calgary. I am collecting some bits and pieces just now. I am planning on using the 2.3L Lima as well.

nice ! I noticed that there is a amendment on the trans tunnel here , does the lima need more room or can I use the dimensions in the book ?

I not sure about the amendments as I am not that far into it at the moment. Check out LocostUSA.com and search for Lima, there is a lot of info regarding the Lima engine, and probably info on the T5.
I hope this helps.
I hope to be starting my build very soon as I am still stuck for space at the moment.
I have just got my Lima engine with the 16v Volvo head running and I have to sort out the MS2 system yet. I have it installed in my 1986 XR4Ti. Once its sorted I can move the XR outside, then I can get into the build etc.
cheers,
Bill.

I'm lucky for space . My boss encourages after work projects and doesn't mind the car in the shop , as long as I take build pics for the companies web site. good luck on the build . I wish I could find a merkur .

I can keep a look out for one that is going to be scrapped etc, if you like. Checkout the Merkur Forum, occasionally one will show up that is heading for the wreckers yard.

Bill.
