Elan swap

Gang,

Picked up an Elan today locally. A bit more rust than I wanted but the rest is in OK shape. Has a running 250 in it, but I have a 335e I want to swap in instead. Any considerations or pop in and go?

Things are freezing up nicely in the swamp so far for mid Dec!

Krusty,

I did a 318 into a 77 Elan deluxe with no issues.  A little bit tight to change the spark plug but still do-able.  If your Elan has a single chaincase you may want to try to find a double one.  Good luck.
