Engine Swap

I've got 2 MGB Roadsters, a 71, and 72. I removed the good engine from one and put it into the one with the better body. It's engine ran fine, but allways smoked. I tried very hard to stop the other engine from smoking with no luck, so I decided to just put the good engine in the good car and drive it. It took about 3 days to do the engine swap, working in my spare time. I'll get pictures posted for those of you that are interested in the next few weeks. I'm thinking about cleaning up the body on the other one and replacing the gas engine with an electric one. I've seen a few electric MGB's on the net, and it sounds like a fun project. The government also offer tax-breaks for converting a gas car to electric as well.
