Hi there, I have a 1979 austin maxi 1750cc, petrol, manual transmition fwd.
it has done a grand total of 22000 miles, and hadnt been used for aproximatly 7 years till it was bought by my self. The engine cranked over fine and it did run but the following morning I tryed it and it just cranked over, so I left it whilst I did other repairs, later on that day I atempted to crank it over again but the engine had locked solid, even in gear and rolled back and forth would not budge it. So far I have removed the sparkplugs and poured hot diesel down the cylinders but have a hunch that it wont help. The gearbox is in the sump of the engine like the old mini. Any ideas, I realy dont want to have to strip down and rebuild.
have the same problem?
