more pics
having the engine stand is a godsend...on another issue namely the woeful starter motor has anyone tried these bad boys https://www.autoelectricsupplies.co.uk/product_list/220
I think the starter will really struggle with the tight engine and I wanted to test it before putting it back in the car so was considering giving it a trial run on the engine stand and then I came across these uprated starter motors...Hmmmm...

I am a fan of originality......but I recently fitted one of their starters to my Proteus Jaguar C Type which has a tight high compression triple Weber (Italian, not Spanish) engine and starting has been transformed. The old original Lucas starter always struggled and this new one is lighter as well as giving a much faster turnover when starting. So recommended as long as you are not obsessed with originality.

It is like Apollo 13 out here miles from a B and Q...20 mile round trip to a supermarket...and 80 light years away from Planet Hartlepool where most of my tools and stuff reside...so we have to fix what breaks with what we have...

Just as well I sheared off that banjo as the water pipe was full of gunge...every cloud and all that....so after a couple of hours trying to get the broken stump out I gave up and moved on to torquing the big end caps and fitting the crankshaft oilway plugs.

Fitted the lock tab thingys and torqued up the bolts...was quite relieved to find the crank still rotated...so far so good...squirted some sealer on the plugs and screwed them in and nipped them up tight with an allen key..

I think the stump of the banjo bolt will either require a lot of patience or brute force. I have been using a 50/50 mix of automatic transmission fluid and cellulose thinners as a releasing agent with very satisfactory results.

Hi all
I had managed to cut 2 slots down the inside of the banjo with a padsaw blade and the two halves of the banjo are loose... so with a proper vise I think they will come out... that was after 3 hours and the carbon dioxide scrubber was still broken.....

I thought about that ..but then thought I would need to check the state inside the banjo...and like the Apollo 13 analogy it is a 4 hour round journey..so I will have to wait till next week as I have to see my legal people on the house purchase.

Bit more done today...sump is on and finally got the timing chain and sprockets back on late this afternoon...have an issue with the head studs as the set I have some are too long and one is too short so will need to get a new set. Nipped the head down and put the valve gear on to test the cam followers etc no graunching noises so more progress. I will have to wait for the replacement studs before I can set the timing and finish the rebuild.

more progress today sort of...Cleaned the exhaust manifold up a bit and popped it on...then tackled a job that has been waiting for a long time the thermostat. Tried to remove the housing before my hernia op Ouch! so feeling a lot more mobile and with the engine securely on the stand I tooled up.
Similar result to the inlet manifold banjo as the housing when it came out munched it's way through the thread in the cylinder head oh dear...

So we were left with the housing with the thread clogged up with aluminium from the cylinder head and the head missing a good bit of the thread. The task was then to clean up the thread of the housing and see if there were any bits of thread left in the head ...

Where did the thermostat go? Anyway I tried to clean out the thread on the housing to no avail so had to resort to chemical warfare and a good soak in a vinegar and salt dissolved the aluminium away. With a very sharp thin bladed pocket knife after I had stuck it into my finger just the one time I cleaned out the crusty stuff in what was left of the thread of the head....
