to start things off i bought the car not running as it was leaking from the plate at the rear of the head. the previous owner did drive as his daily up until it started leaking.
i then took the motor out and fixed it.
after that i put the motor back in the car then i tried to start it, it turned over then locked up.
the motor is now out of the car with no gear box attached though when i try to manually turn the crankshaft it will turn 360deg one way then lock up, i can then turn it 360deg back the other way before it locks up in the same spot.
