if you can get past the puerile drivel they spout :?
I've never found this with Sretens vidoes, others yes but his no, well if he does I find it as entertaining as the rest of the video

I think this is an engine out job now. Reckon it'll be more trouble that it's worth, sadly.
One thing with this guy is, the more challenging a problem is the more he goes in with a view to sort it out, so if its an engine out, that's what he'll do.

The B7's engine has been rebuilt and is on its way back. Apparently they found 6 bent valves too. :shock: Will be interesting to see it taking shape over the coming months.

This series of videos is just superb. Just watched the latest installment, with the engine back in and ready for first fire up. I won't spoil it!

Shame he forgot to put the oil in, eh?!

I know, it's giving up a good fight isn't it. I felt sorry for him after all that work.

I assume there are a few people still following Sreten's adventures with this B7 - it's a rollercoaster ride. He's been contacted by Andreas Bovensiepen now and invited for a factory tour, so would be great if he can incorporate that into one of his videos.

I’ve been watching this project myself and the time, effort and energy he’s put into fixing this as been astounding. Even if I had the skill to do what he does, I’d have given up and scrapped it long time ago.

I’m glad that Alpina have reached out to him and I hope he can document his visit as well.
