Complete engine

After my 1987 vf1000f which i have owned for the last 10 years it developed a engine problem i gave it to a mechanic

a month ago and the dope made the whole thing worst

he took it all apart even breaking the casing

I lost the head and it’s now back with

Easiest thing for me is to try find a complete running engine

Is there any hope of that

That depends on how much you want to spend,durhamducs still has a complete and running F2 engine for which he wants north of £600.
I have found him willing to haggle a bit tho.
You would need to swap oil pumps and sump with your own engine as the F2 is fitted with an oil cooler.
What was wrong with your engine and which casing did your mechcomic break?
You may be able to salvage it with the right bits

The cams backed in but Mr idiot took most of the engine apart

Broke a rear section of the casing that one of the mounting bolts goes through

I can see why you want a complete engine.
Camshafts are not a problem,there are good used ones available or your own can be repaired by the likes of SEP at Kegworth.
It may be possible to alloy weld the broken casing using the mounting bolt to line it all up.
There may be a member who can help with a complete engine failing which there are casings around to build your internals into.

Thanks very much Bif but i’ve bloody have enough of it now

It make me sad looking at it

I’m just going to break it for parts and maybe help other Vf’s back on the road

Thanks]

I have an FE engine you can have, but it does need cams. PM me if your interested.

Thank you evry much but what part of the world are in

If he doesn’t have it, i will. I have a wrecked engine with only 14k on it and good cams.
Could definitely do with it as a spare, so if he doesn’t have it…2nd dibs!

Oh…didnt think about that, I’m in Yorkshire England.

Ok not a problem i’ll have a quick think about it

would you be going to the staffford bike show in october by any chance
