It might turn out the head is scrap if the housing will not screw back in...shame as it has been skimmed and all the valves ground in. We shall see

Had a quick test on screwing the housing back into the head and can report it went in down to about 2 threads so say 15mm in? this was by hand so I am thinking some non setting sealing compound round the threads and a new gasket/seal thingy and a gentlle nip up with the 36mm socket should see the job done...

Hi all
Hope you are all enjoying this lovely sunshine...I've been slaving over a 60 year old engine in the tent.
Got the thermostat back in the housing screwed well into the head so with the fibre washer and some sealer should be OK. seems to be a problem with these engines either overcooling or overheating plus broken thermostats.
Next job was to fit the circlip to the chain tensioner dowel but of course my ciclip pliers were 80 miles away so I modified a pair of longnosed pliers. Next job was to get all the block/head studs in and torque down the head...had a bit of an accident here as when I was taking off the head it slipped back down the studs and squashed my middle finger on my right hand ouch...Matron wanted to rush me to A & E but I was a brave soldier and carried on.

Next up was the head... so quickly torquing it down and replacing the valve gear revealed that all the valve clearances were miles out and a valve or 2 were interfering with the pistons as the engine now would not rotate...slackened all the tappet adjusting screws and thankfully the engine turns over again sounds like there is some compression anyway...Might get chance tomorrow to set the timing and replace the sprocket cover. I have no inlet manifold gasket so I just tried out the carb on the manifold.
bye for now Clarkey

Hi all

The number plate surround needs to be saved and the after market (Lucas) number plate light needs to be removed...

Those original aluminium number plate surrounds are just lovely and so much better made than todays new
versions. Absolutely worth saving.

I may have to follow your lead and adopt working in a tent. A Y10 however is a bit larger than an engine.

Tents come in a variety of sizes Frank ....... the problem is finding the space in which to pitch it!!!  However, it is an excellent idea even if some of the car still sticks out in the rain!!!
