Long,long time since last message.
The engine was finally in the car and running(june 2016)but still struggling with ignition timing and carburetors when a new freeze plug in the head started to leak, the engine had then run ca.1 hour all together.
I needed to remove the head and all ancillary's to renew the plug.
It is then that i noticed the oil i had put on the pistons flowed away,this meant the pistons didn,t seal good.
After several test i decided to take the engine out again and take it to the workshop.....
They called me today to have a look inside and i,am baffled over what i saw.
Because off shitty new fitted piston rings(not round)the cylinders, bearing shells and crankshaft are scratched due to flushing petrol.
Now the engine must be taken apart again!
Again crankshaft and cylinders has to be polished.
I haven,t got an offer yet but i fear the worst.
To all builders:i have bad experiences with several new parts:ball joints with cracked rubber after 0 miles,all the suspension bushes failed the MOT after
500 miles(now new PU bushes fitted)and last but not least those
which will cost me lots off money!
All this parts came from Rimmer but i think they are common sold by other
So agian no summer driving and still spending lots off money for me.
