Another...



Engines arrive from Geelong pre-assembled and are fitted with hoses, belts and other compenents. They are then joined to the transmission and transferred to the engine fitment area.

Re: EAs on the Production Line

Great stuff Sunny!! Where did you manage to dig that stuff up from? I would have loved to have seen a train load of EA's back in their hayday. Pity is was only about 4yrs old when they were released! lol
