I'll do it next time - it's only little nuts and bolts compared to the work toys. I just needed it in and set up for EBI, but had to be in work for 6 day shifts.

Prick - I'm not entirely sure the tinwear is totally to blame, the timing was a bit out. Ill put it on after the mid monther using the ramps at my gf's.

Haven't you forgotten to add that the timing was out after you'd been titting about with it?

You've got a 009 fitted as well I think?

If this is the case and my memory serves me correctly this also changed where it needs to be set...

I've been quiet lately, however with a mate from work I pulled the engine last week. It seems like I have the right tinwear, nut that the heat exchangers and thermostat boxes that sit on top of the exhaust collector have seen better days.

Whilst taking it all apart I've found a few rubbish pipes, a couple of splits and a few exhaust blows. Importantly, the heads and barrels all look pretty good. I guess low compression must have been caused by worn rings, so the to do list now includes rings, and pushrod tubes, new seals all round, a new clutch end oil seal, and some new heat exchangers... whilst I'm there it seems rude not to pop on a T3D exhaust for a little rumble Smile

Once the engine is back up I'll look at the oil relief valve, and a csp sump plate with a temp sender...


happy with those...


definitely seen better days!


Pile of tinware for cleaning up and painting at work.


heads to decoke at work and either build up the plug holes with weld and recut or helicoil for now...

The only niggle at the back of my mind is that I was told that this was a 16000 mile old engine when I bought it...

don't bother with and oil temp gauge ......the oil heats up too slow ......ebay have got digital cylinder head temp gauges for about 40 .....they bolt under the spark plug on no3 .....way more accurate .....by the time your oil is too hot .......you've cooked the heads


listen to uncle nomates ........or get a wedgey

Are cyl head temp gauges as simple to fit as sandwiching between the plug and the head?
