Apologies if this is in the wrong section... I have a Triumph Dolomite sprint engine, over drive gearbox, and complete front subframe all ready to fit. Head has been taken off as we thought the head gasket has gone, this was not the case. The engine requires a rebore, new pistons and rings. Then it will be all good. It run really well and there was no issues with the gearbox or clutch... Any ideas on what this lot is worth? Or any offers? It's been out of the car for about 3 weeks....

Not wishing to pick flies, but if the head is off and it needs a rebore and new pistons and rings then it's not ready to fit...

Stating your location may help with saleability...

Yeah, the subframe is ready to fit in, hence why I've said the state the engine is in and what work it needs....
