Re: Re: Doh!!!


I’ve got the engine out, wasn’t as bad as I thought.
Started to take the cams out, number 5 bearing cap was on the wrong way round, arrow pointing backwards, alarm bells.
The head came off quite easily, which was more than could be said for the barrels. They came up reasonably easily until the threaded part of the stud, then it was brute force.
The left hand barrel has 2 lumps out of the skirt, one quite large.
The left hand piston then just lifted out. The con rod was still attached but the bottom bearing was missing and the rod is bent.
I tried to upload some photos but can’t seem to do it.
Oh well, nobody said life was easy.
