    24v head

    It’s very excessive. They are taking advantage of us poor deluded fools. It does seem maybe to be an expensive troublesome route but at least it’s only contained within the engine itself and not into the chassis.

    There are a few options. You can get custom custom or “off the shelf” camshafts relatively easily. As you know the 16V Facebook group is quite good for info and resources but everything is expensive 🤣 As for profile , I was kind of thinking fast road territory ish probably 🤪

    Standard 24v pistons do have cut outs for valves in the top. Both the 3.0 and the 2.4 share the same bore but different strokes but I have no idea how the pistons compare in other physical dimensions. I have seen pistons available from varied suppliers and manufacturers including Wisecco , Omega and JE pistons and Risse, Westspeed etc. With a range from 0.5 to 2.0mm oversize. My preference seems to be the omega ones but I need to contact them for further info. Obviously at this time it’s ideal then to match or make changes to con rod lengths. I’m waiting to find another head as I want to convert 2 at the same time , so I’m reluctant to start stripping down yet as I don’t want to lose parts.

    I’m embarrassed to say it’s still sat on the pallet in my shed . I’ve done nothing this year except source parts, which are still dotted around the country awaiting collection . Southport, Oldham , Scunthorpe & Northampton to be precise. It’s a decent road trip 😂. I do agree however that it is indeed extremely likely that the bores are oval. I will need new pistons anyway as it will be 16v and I can’t see the point of skimping on it whilst it’s all apart.

    Mike's Manta.

    Who said mantas aren’t “ rock and roll “ . I was really into Marillion in the 80’s and saw them loads of times but most memorably at the ‘Monsters of Rock ’ at Donnington. What an experience. I’m going to have to dig out all my rock mix tapes. Thanks for jogging some cool memories 👌
  8. I hope this is allowed . I’m looking for a Renault 5 mk1 2 door car if anyone knows of one . Anything considered but ideally rusty and cheap although cheap and non rusty is better 😜. Not bothered if it has an engine or not. Willing to travel and collect . It’s a project for my wife as she would like a classic car too and it’s either the Renault or 1.9 205 gti but she would prefer the Renault . Any help would be appreciated. Thank you
  9. Ooh wow. I’ve been on the lookout for this. This is ‘ Houndstooth’ which matches my trim. Thanks 👍
  10. New iPad for Christmas. Two birds one stone 👍👌🤣
  11. Pretty sure that the curled up piece of metal that you show in the photos is the oil level raiser, it should protrude upwards towards the cam (if that makes sense ) , it keeps extra oil in the head by simply raising the level of the oil return path. It may have dropped down into your head .
