The alloy is called 'Electron' and is an amalgam of aluminium and manganese , flammable at high temperatures and easily corroded if water enters the gearbox.


The "Elektron" alloy is a blend of 9+ metals, mostly magnesium and aluminum(9.5%). Magnanese is one of them at about 0.5%. And yes, it is flammable and corrodes easily.

The ford 9n had half a mercury v8 engine in so could mine possibly be half a triumph spitfire engine?

Lots of two part epoxy products are made for this purpose , but they won't strengthen the casting . Pitting is fine up to a point , thinning which happens right at the bottom is far more serious .
Most only realise the trouble is there when the head of a jack or stand punches a hole in it .

Yes Ron, Magnesium , a ' Senior ' moment and if you can recall third form science classes the very reason acetylene torches are a no no near them .

IIRC the basic TE wet sleeve engine was also used in Standard Vanguard sedans and Triumph sedans and TR2 - 4 sports cars (Standard Triumph products). The sedans and sports cars were (IIRC) just under 2 litres. Ferguson sleeves were the start to an instant hot-up kit for them.



You could improve the road speed of your TE 20 by fitting a TR sports engine if you wanted to - not sure it would improve anything else.

Triumph Spitfires came out in the early 1960s and had a 4 cylinder engine of about 1200 cc. A related model had an inline 6. The only Triumph V8 I know of was in the Stag of about 1970 - late 1970's and it wasn't a very good engine it seems. This had a 4 cylinder offshoot (some used in SAABs) but doesn't seem to have been made as an industrial version.
