V8 engines for sale

Post by Shindles » Thu Jan 10, 2019 5:36 pm

Robbie (Ray) Harris has just built a spare engine for my Tiger and I'm very pleased with it.
He asked me to inform members that he has other engines for Tigers (289 and 302 etc) that can be built to any specification that you want.
Contact him directly on:
Mention that you got the information from Sheridan

That's probably my old 260 out of JUL 390D. He's local to me and has assisted on my supercharging. He runs a 800bhp SBF blown Capri. He knows his stuff.
