Is it really correct that the aluminium engine was based on the MGC engine? I
have never heard that before. That car and the engine, which is not currently
in the car, are maintained by Paul Woolmer and Ive never heard him mention the
MGC design. I'll check with him.

John Chatham is currently re-manufacturing aluminium engine blocks based on
castings taken from one of the three (or four?) engines that were originally
made. I believe only two originals now exist.
