2.0Xe Rebuild


Recommended Posts

Hello all,

As you maybe aware I'm in the process of restoring a Manta........see http://forums.mantaclub.org/topic/25413-my-gte-coupe-barn-find/

I'm now stripping the 20XE Red top engine and planning replacing the usual components given the engine had covered 120k, including;

tappets (took about 15min to stop ticking)

valve stem oil seals

piston rings

big end & main bearings

oil pump

water pump

timing belt & tensioners etc.

My questions are........

1. is there anything else you would replace?

2. On ebay, this retailer appears to sell piston rings, tappets & big end bearings etc at very competitive prices (see below)




has anyone any experience of these parts?

Oh, forgot the injectors...

again, after 120k I'm guessing they will be pretty tired. Has anyone had them cleaned, can you recommend anywhere?

What does a new set cost?
