I've seen an L reg Williams (am i right in thinking this will be a '1'?) It's advertised as totally standard apart from exhaust and mint condition inside and out (aren't they all, lol).
Seeing as the mileage isn't quoted in the advert I'm expecting it to be high. Does the F7 take mile the miles well?? When should the cambelt be changed??

It's up for £2,700. Does this sound a fair price? Sounds a bit too good to be true....

My engine had minimal wear at 140k before the rebuild. Yes it will be a 1. Find out the number hey? :wink: for the register.

Cambelt is every 72k or 5 years.. whichever.

Yes, L will be a 1.. (or a 2/3 with personal plate :lol: ).

As for being mint, well.. you'll have to decide it when you see it. Everyone says they are mint, but, infact, they arn't.. (or at least, not to me/us/whatever).

Racing engines tend to be blueprinted as a matter f fact. Im no mechanic but i think it means the engine components have been balanced and the large machine tolerances that are usually allowed are removed making the engine more as the original measurements determined.

I always thought blue printing has getting the component tolerences as tight as possible for example if a certain component had a tolerence of +/- 2mm then blue printing would involve getting that tolerence down to say +/- 1mm.

it is mate..but blueprinting is also putting it back to manufacturers specification...including the tolerences
