TOOLS REQUIRED for kit or pkd option.
A range of general car maintenance tools are all that should be required, plus a lifting jack and a pair of axle stands. An engine hoist is not essential as the front of the Cub shell can be lifted and lowered onto the engine / sub frame with the aide of some helpers.

As detailed previously, we recommend the 1300cc unit. This can come from various donors including the Mini 1275. Metro 1300. MG metro. In all cases, for IVA, the age of the engine needs to be proved either by engine number which can be checked or by a log book or V5 from the car that was originally fitted with the engine.
