1972 2002 M10 Engine with 4 speed manual sourced.

M10 2002 engine with 4 speed manual gear and small Solex carb.
I had a very rare opportunity (only 100 of the 02 series were sold here)  to buy a 2002 engine for my 1802 from the same guy that sold me both 1802 cars (1974, 1975, Chamonix and Amazongrun).

It was sitting in his yard and of course untouched for years. It came off from a working car with the front bridge and lacked some accessories that maybe he sold during the years.

Not being aware of the great exchangeability of the E10/M10 with the later platforms,  i considered that this is my only chance to convert my 3 speed automatic 1802 to a real manual (4 speed) 2002.

So the saga began...

We cleaned it and took it apart hoping for the best which turned out to be much less than best but better than worst.
