You could but how has it been treated?, am currently rebuilding one at the moment and you should of seen the Ring ridge on the basted 2 of the cylinders were quite bad, the taper it’s got going is impressive as well LOL.

They wouldn’t all be bad thou.

Chev v8 diesel

Better fuel economy (probably work out to a bit more in cost though), more power than you could poke a stick at (no overheating with the LPG), what more do you want? Apparently you might have to look behind the vehicle every so often to see if you still have your van attatched.

Oh, and a v8 burble....
