HA Tatt festival 2011
Today I spent most of the morning and early afternoon rummaging through boxes of HA saloon parts. Great as it was, most of the parts were old broken parts. Appears the original owner of the parts never threw anything away ever… old brake hoses, old brake shoes, worn out clutches? Why one has to wonder why..
But I did pick up a complete clutch for Marvin. One old 1057cc engine in parts, which I brought back with me, one complete 1057cc engine I have left in storage with the present seller. One pair of brand new (just in case) HA wings. A 1256cc head, which once restored will go with the the boxed 1256cc short engine I have. There was also a decent front grille badge for Marvin, some spare side chrome trims which should be better than what I have, some odds and sods engine parts (springs, valves, etc). Lastly a pile of old pistons on con-rods, which I shall get pressed off so I have some spare con-rods.
All in all a successful few hours work. Also I still have to unload the car, something tells me its not going to be till tomorrow now, time for a beer and a snack…..
