i got the new shells! and this time they were the correct size they have quite a nice finish on them too.. i don't know whether anyone can actually see them on this photo though.




the shells went in and i done the big ends up... the crank was turning over nice and smooth.

using an OEM gasket i put the head back on. the bolts were mega tight, really needed a longer breaker bar to help me out, but i just have a 19" one.

the tappets were a pain too. i stored them soaked in oil and they have really tight clearances to go into... so getting them in with slippery fingers was a challenge.

I usually use GSF for all my service bits. they provide Mann filters, which i personally prefer ahead of anything else - including OEM purflux. i'm using NGK plugs temporarily, but i'll change them to something better once the engine is broken in. i was going to use a dayco kit, but GSF was shut so i got hold of a gates one instead from another supplier - i was too impatient and wanted to get the engine turning asap LOL

this is a rig i put together, cos i wanted to put the gearbox on the engine before i finished putting all the ancillaries, manifolds etc back. using the engine stand wouldn't have allowed this. plus now it's just one simple hoist and it'll go back into the car Big grin

i decided to replace the rear main oil seal even though it wasn't leaking - better to be safe than sorry!

the flywheel had quite a few overheating marks on it, but i managed to get them out with some coarse emery cloth, leaving the flywheel nice and rough for the bite.





got the clutch from GSF at a bargain price Big grin whacked it on with some grease around the release bearing to make sure everything runs smoothly.

cheers man, yeah i'm pleased with the way it's coming together. everything is falling back into place quite nicely (touch wood...) i wouldn't mind doing this kind of job for people - just haven't got the time Razz

no particular reason. they were cheaper than bosch, not by a lot mind. these are just to break the engine in, once it's done 1000 miles i'll uprate them.

that's not quite what I meant, the standard NGK's for this engine are twin electrode IIRC.

wont be any need to "uprate" them, save your cash for another few gallons of gogo juice Thumbs up:
