I think I can read a wee bit of sarcasm in the post indicating the how well the "rebuilt" copperhead is running.  Looks like everything except the "Copperhead" was replaced:

New:Copperhead .049 running nicely - a new lease on life for #25 Scree221

Rebuilt:
Copperhead .049 running nicely - a new lease on life for #25 Scree222

Just keep replacing parts until it runs....or keep it as a collector show piece? lol!

I liked the John Player Lotus that Mauricio pictured.  Sent me looking for one.  

I had an Elan once, came with the house, sorta.  Seller asked me to store it for awhile, which I did.  He offered it to me for $15K, later for $10K.  I hesitated to my later regret.  Being a dedicated MG fan I got a MGB instead.  Later Elan's took off, MGB's tanked.  Sad 

My MGB and friend.  Same color as the Player............Drifting.   Embarassed

I gather that finally the replacement of the entire engine bottom helped, so our assumption that the loose crank fit made the start and run troublesome was right..


Congrats and enjoy your healed engine!

Looks like everything south of the cylinder save maybe a de-anodized spinner has been replaced. Great if it makes the buyer happy.
