I might need a 1200 engine if any one knows to one.
Last time of trying to fix some issues this weekend on my old 12 but I think it's a lost cause, might be a cracked block or duff head, not sure.
Would like complete but don't need carbs and stuff.
I know it's a long shot but you never know.

Thanks in advance.

There are 2 basic types of 1200 engines. The 1984 model had the ignition pick ups at the rear of the engine
and they moved to the front on later models. Just watch for this whichever you are looking for as your wiring loom will not match up.

A friend of mine in London has one.
It has low mileage because it has been in the garage workshop most of it's life, with electrical problems.
He's got another brain box from the States and says, if that don't work, he'll flog it for scrap.
I don't know if the engine is the same as yours, or even if it's available yet but worth checking, just in case.

Be a pity to scrap that looks too good but I think it's a later one, mines an 84.
Although think we may have cracked it now, fingers crossed.
