Where can I get a MI or MII amby engine
I have heard from a friend of mine that there are quiet a few MarkI/MarkII ambys in around Vijayawada/Guntur area fitted with BMC/Trekker or Matador engines. I want to buy one of these and replace the engine with a original one. Does anyone know where I can get a original engine. help.

A diesel Amby sells at a premiuim. A petrol engine would be another 6-8k (?), add to that cost of transplant.

The place is hardly 12 hour train journy from Hydrabad, go there you'll get plenty of Ambys from mark 1-4, the name of that place is Bhilai(Chattisgarh) famous for its Steel Plant.

As karl has said, getting a petrol amby would be cheaper, as nobody really wants them. The diesel ones are still in demand, and will most probably have most of the original trim bits changed too. And the hassle of getting a correct petrol engine, installing it successfully, getting it endorsed by the rto, etc etc is just not worth the effort!!
