With a piece of equipment like that Dave, you will acquire new friends I am sure. I for one would like to talk to you sometime about boring B20 liners in situ on an engine I have if you are prepared to have a go.

Pheeew! I love your faith in my abilities, but frankly as this is my first effort, excluding the Hillman that was already on its way to the scrap yard, I much appreciate the faith, but I daren't do it to someone else's engine at present. We haven't even run my engine up yet, so the ultimate test has not taken place. You would be more than welcome to borrow the equipment if you want to have a go or if you have a more experienced autoengineer in mind. You would probably need to make a new top plate as I don't know whether the stud patterns are the same.

Best wishes

Hi Dave

Had a look at what I thought was a completed crank, but on closer inspection the bottom sprocket Item 30 Tav 6, wasn’t present and was in my box of spares. So I can only assume that the past owner must have taken the damper of. BTW I have most parts to make up 2 engines but only one block and a very rusted crank, which I purchased in lots of boxes. But what is interesting is that it looks like the sprocket had been removed from its sleeve, the one with the slot for the key. God knows how did that, please see image. However saying that I couldn’t see a washer/plate that resembled item 27, on the crank or in any of the boxes.

Many thanks for looking - much appreciated. I am going to check the engine that I take out of the Flaminia and see if there is one fitted in that. In the meantime I have got hold of one from a Triumph Stag which is the correct diameter on the bore, and just needs the keyway widening. If necessary, I shall use this.

While I have been working on the block, the cam shaft and followers were sent away to Newman Cams for polishing etc.

I was lucky to find a place locally (Leicestershire) that had two separate but related businesses under one roof - a crank shaft grinder and Billy the Balancer. The crank was ground and then sent to be hardened, before finally making it back to Billy where it, along with the pistons, con rods, damper, various bolts and tab washers (in fact anything that ran on the crank shaft), were all balanced. The whole process took about 6 weeks.
At this time the cylinder heads were also sent away to have new valve guides fitted, hardened valve seats inserted and a new set of valves lapped in.

When the cylinder heads came back I checked over the spark plug threads and found that some were the worse for wear. Luckily over the summer I had purchased a time-sert kit from a car boot sale, which was brand new and never used, so I set about replacing the threads.

Hi Dave
Hope you are well.
Just been re-reading this thread. Can you tell me what the two bolts are in the centre of the V ?
Cheers
