    Got the engine on the stand today




    And removed the exhaust maunfold and rocker cover to expose camshaft and remove camshaft pully


    Then undo head bolts 2 snapped in the block but machine shop soon sort that then remove cam carrier this exposes the rockers and lifters so remove all them as well


    And then pull head off marked pistons so know there origional cylinder


    Next was sump of to expose con rods and crank result the sump is already baffled





    Undo all the conrod bolts and pop pistons out and remove oil pick up pipe


    This left just the crank in place remove the crank caps and you left with this




    Lift crankshaft out and remove bearings and you are left with a bare block



    When removing the oil pick up this is exactly why you should not go shoving loads of sealer anywhere near oil ways or sump ECT!!!

    That's just asking for oil starvation leading to engine failure !!


    Jobs that need doing

    Bores checked and honed

    Broken studs from block removed

    Block face machined

    Head face machined

    3 angled valve seats machined

    Cam carrier re-faced

    Crank polished as it has a few marks nothing majot

    New rings

    New camshaft and adjustable vernier

    Solid lifters

    New rocker arms

    New water pump

    New cambelt kit

    New ends and mains

    New high pressure oil pump

    Full gasket and seal set

    Good clean of all parts and a lick of paint

    And we should just about be there ......

    Now this is a thread I can get behind! I love a fwd stock car to go dick around with, but all my focus is on getting into circuit racing at this point (which should be happening next year!).

    I do hope your cage is going to be done differently(safer) than the one you showed in the first post.

    What up with the cage in the first post that's the cage that is reccomended by the ORC the governing body of oval racing in the UK
    And all oval cars run a similar cage

    I'm not liking the lack of a cross member going all the way across behind the seat, and especially not liking the lack of a diagonal there in the main hoop.
