Wondering if anyone is selling rebuilt engines these days. Seems like PRI was doing it a few years ago, just wondering

I would trust Ted over PRI (if they are still around) anyday.

TRF may offer such a thing also.

Bare in mind, these will be rebuilt not 'new' engines.

PAECO down south somewhere still offers them I think. There is also a guy in Connecticut offers them on ebay from time to time

There are members of this list that may offer this, check the 'Vendor Market' listings.
At least one installs the rebuilt motor into his own car and test drives it to ensure good results,
before draining and crating it.

I assume you want a generic stock rebuild, not custom work?

I haven't seen or heard from Hap in a while, but last I did hear, he was not building any more street engines and may have given up Triumphs. But give him a shout out as things change.

His website says he's not interested in building stock engines.

In general I wouldn't expect many places to have rebuilt engines on the shelf, ready to ship because people's requirements (at least if this site is indicative) are all over the map.

I can build stock engine if I have a good core to work with.

Just spoke with the guys at the shop that I use and they have a window for me so it is going in next week, they are very good about letting me tinker with the car while they are doing their thing so this will give me a good chance to do engine bay house keeping in a warm shop with the engine out. Nice feature as it is very COLD up here and my garage isn't heated.
Thanks for the responses, did not know about some of the suppliers mentioned in the responses, always helpful info.

Thanks much

Hi Jim

Give my friend Jere McSparran a call. He is a member. He rebuilds and sells 1500 engines for MG's and Triumphs. And I know he has rebuilt others. Here is his shop website: http://jmacengineshop.weebly.com/

Regards,

Richard

Be wary of machine shops that don't have Triumph experience. One of our club members with a TR3 had a bad experience with a machine shop that didn't and ended up doing the whole thing over.
