Dropped the engine out, supported on jacks, disconnected engine mounts from chassis rails and lowered to the floor, once the suspension is out, this takes less than an hour to do, then simply pick the car up in the air far enough to slide the whole lump out.

As you will see there is plenty of emulsified gloop from the head gasket giving up !

Crank is in good order, but will replace all the bearing shells anyhow.

The last few pictures are of the damper cone, this is fretting, caused by the damper being knackered which was causing a vibration, the microscopic movement of the cone against the damper and also on the crank started fretting which is like cold welding, if this really gets hold the cones need to be cut off. The damage to the crank could be cleaned off and polished, the cone will also be ground off and polished with a new damper fitted.

The fifth picture does not show very well, but the support bracket for the oil pipe had not been bolted to its bracket, so was flapping about on the pipe and had obviously been hit by the crank at some point as it was bent badly, someone has obviously worked on this engine before and was a little absent minded !

Brent was down and got busy stripping the front suspension and cleaning all that lovely crud and underseal that we all know too well, and which Brent is now a very fond fan of too !!

Got the bottom end back in with new bearing shells, new high capacity oil pump, and new rear crank rope seals, cleaned up the piston crowns and block with a coat of paint after stripping off the oil and grease.

Found that the engine has been re-bored at some point as you will see by the picture of the piston. (guess they were the ones that left the oil pipe clamp loose on the bottom end, found the nut in the sump, but no bolt, so guessed they dropped the nut and threw away the bolt !!)

I am sure Brent will post some pictures of his hard work on the suspension, I will give the suspension parts a blast with the sand blaster, and get them painted for new bushes, hopefully then it can all go back together and Brent can re re-united with the car.

I am seriously trying to find a working TARDIS so I can go and have a quiet chat with whoever invented that underseal stuff! Truly truly horrid stuff!

Well the engine certainly is looking better than it did! Here are a few pictures I managed to take. It was great working on the car and really quite informative, I learnt rather a lot! Thanks Jon !

Interesting that it has been rebored, I must have a closer look through all the paperwork that came with it.

You should post some more pics of the suspension, that one early pic does not show the hard work you did Brent.

Unfortunately I didn't take many


I had to leave in a rush as well, I'd let time get away with me and when my wife rang I realised I needed to get a move on, especially given that I had to avoid Windsor on my way home!

I had a dig through the paperwork that came with the car after you mentioned the piston rebore and I found this...

The prices in 1979 were a little more palatable than they are now !


Timing gear back on with new sprockets and chains, studs are in the head, bottom end torqued up and new rope seal fitted, just trying to find all the correct bolts for the timing chain cover, they are in different bags, it is always harder to find the parts when someone else took it apart !


Hopefully will have the head back on by Tuesday and all bolted up ready to go back in.


Will spray up the front suspension components that Brent has cleaned up, they just need a quick clean with the sandblaster and get some paint on so they can be re-bushed and reassembled.

It's looking good! Had the hydraulic tensioner been blocked at the filter like was suspected?

The filter was ok actually, the timing chain noise was definitely associated to the slipper having lost it's material and the timing chain running on bare metal !


Head and sump back on and bolted up, valve timing set and chains adjusted, will get it off the engine stand and onto a dolly so I can remount the flywheel and clutch ready to go back in the car.


I will post some pics later, forgot to take any today !

No worries I did buy a new filter anyway so it's starting afresh at least!

Did you find that pully?

Head on.


Blasted off some of the suspension parts, coated with acid etch primer and 2 coats black.


I have not looked further for the idler pulley yet, will have another ferret in the boot this afternoon.

Blasted off the main front crossmember, and coated with Dinitrol RC900 this is a rust convertor and epoxy primer in one, really good stuff IMO.


The rest of the suspension parts are now all painted, more pics shortly.

Spent an enjoyable day yesterday helping Jon on the car, engines is mostly in now, hopefully I'll have it back in the next couple of weeks!



Did you end up finding those bolts Jon?

Just as I was about to set off I decided there was no point taking my overalls all the way back to London and threw them into the car, of course then at the train station I realised my reading glasses were in them, so I had a lot of trouble on the trip home reading anything!!

Glad you enjoyed the day, the bolts are still in that safe place I left them ! I have some nice new ones that I will use, I will find that safe place once I remember where it was !

Hopefully you have another pair of glasses at home too !
