Default Lancer Engineering v8 engine

Inherited castings of the v8 engine, decided to work on it. Any advise? I am no stranger to machining as I have been doing it for 50 plus years. Can any of these castings be had anywhere anymore? What happened to Lancer Engineering?

Became the Challenger v8 from Coles power models, which are no longer in business. If you are interested in selling your castings I would be very interested! I have been looking for a set for ages

Default Challenger

Sorry Mark, My siblings and myself bought the castings back in the 70's for my Dad. He did not get to it as he was doing a steam engine at the time. Because I also have done a steam engine and enjoy this hobby I plan on working on it. I have the engine block about 60% completed.

I could post pictures as I go. Will retire end of June and hope to spend more time on it as well as other steam engines I have.
