    Default Samurai Auto & Marine Ltd

    Hi again
    Anyone know why they are not answering phones, faxes, e-mail.
    Trying desperately to buy an engine from them.
    Thanks

    Agree if what happened to WhiteKnight was indicative of their products. Was it this company that got into all sorts of problems when the MD's wife left & cleared him out??

    I saw Whiteknight in the workshop when I went there to have a look around a while back. I was trying to get an idea of how good an outfit they were. Seemed helpful but the place is a shed in the middle of nowhere full of some really filthy looking old engines but the finished articles look OK.

    Maybe Kismet Hardy should have a look at the back issue of MBM that featured WhiteKnight before he jumps in there.

    There is another outfit over in essex somewhere that deal in MarineDiesel V8s. Import from Sweden and properly marinised, not a Humvee engine with a conversion kit.

    can't say i'm overely keen on Samurai's need to attack the bell housing with an angle grinder to fit the starter motor either. Must leave a weak point there , but wasn't that where most of WhiteKnights trouble came from!

    I'd be careful.
