My only experience with the factory spaceframe ki was helping Crispin and a bunch of others pull the engine once, talk about a headscratcher. The first time it was easy, 30 minutes. The second time we just couldn't line up the engine mounting bolts, it took hours. Very frustrating that second time. The fit is very tight from memory.

The problem with the replica Corse frame kits was the poor fabrication in my experience, and that of two other purchasers. The engine mounting brackets needed spacers to take up the gaps! Fun to be had in getting the individual thicknesses back in the right place after engine removal. As you'd expect from Peder, he's doing a proper jobšŸ‘

I needed to shim the engine in the frame on my all original 3C.
Laverdas are pretty shoddy pieces of kit.
