Hi, can anyone recommend a company or individual to rebuild my Holbay engine? I think Coltec in effect became Holbay. I heard mixed things about them years ago and I'm not sure if they are still in existence? Any searches now seem to take you to Dunnell Engines but there is no reference to anything other than Ford engines. Any pointers would be welcome. Thannks

Yes Coltec are run by one of the ex-holbay guys. Where are you based, in theory, any decent company could do the work for you.

Thanks for the reply. I'm based in Bucks. Decent being the operative word. Do Coltec have any particular interest in working on Holbay engines now or is it just work for them?

Seemed quite keen the last time I spoke to them and they still have a picture of a Rootes Holbay engine on the website. They are based on the site where Holbay started in Hollesley bay.

They earn most of the their money building Ford engines these days - they are rather more common

See http://www.coltecracing.com/engines.html



Give Richard a phone.
