Just bought an AAZ engine to replace the ageing, oil burning JX lump in my van & wondered wheres the best place to get parts for these?

I got ripped off & the crank is very likely scrap due to a heavily seized big end so I'll need a replacement of some kind. Are they still available new or is it a case of putting a wanted ad for a good used one out on here? Also need a con rod as the shells had spun in there causing scoring. I see on brickwerks site that new cranks are available for the JX, but not listed for the AAZ.

If my van wasn't a daily driver I'd probably overhaul the original JX engine, but I don't want it off the road for long so think the best option is to get the AAZ properly sorted & swap them over.

There's a seller on ebay selling a used crank and conrods:


I'd get a wanted ad posted up on here and other forums first though.

Perhaps I was unlucky, but Kora Trade sold me an AAZ pump, described as good working order. It arrived with a cover plate loose, in further inspection half the insides were missing. It took a long time to get any money back from them, eBay intervened in the end. They're also shipping from Lithuania, not London. I'd steer clear. I've offered the op a block and crank for far less, just working out if we can get it to him.
