Suzy Posted February 4, 2008 Author Share Posted February 4, 2008 Have to say after losing heart yesterday with the whole thing after discovering my engine was from an older car and poss not converted to unleaded, tonight has cheered me up no end. Had a good look at the block tonight and from look of things has recently been rebuilt(and well) so no need at all to even consider removing the bottom end. Looked at bores properly and they still have the marks where they were honed last time so can't have had much use since was last done and the pistons have no side to side movement either Have cleaned up couple of the valves to and they appear to be the hardened valves suitable for unleaded I'm assuming they where fitted during rebuild, and will be fine cleaned up so not got to buy a new set. Also jacked her up and had good look underneath and hit a few areas with a hammer and it would appear to be a lot more solid than I was expecting. She was also zeibarted at some point which has obviously helped. Although until she stripped down obviously could still be some nasty surprises in store. (pics attached) Managed to sort indicator prob to so they all working. Removed a redundant fuel pump the had just had the pipes cut and rerouted to an electric pump. Also have painted the block so she looking very pretty now!!!!! .
