Hi all I'm new here I thought I would post a pic of my rebuild.

My engine suffered a head gasket failure so I thought I would do the whole lot. It's a good job I stripped the engine the crankshaft was showing excessive wear on the main and big end journals. The bearings themselves had started shedding although it wasn't knocking it was ready to give up. Probably oil pressure failure.

Well guys still going through the intense strip down period. Just thought I would upload a few more photos of work in progress so to speak. Although the parts have been cleaned just prior to re assembly everything will get sprayed with thinners etc to make sure it's all ultra clean.

This is a friendly pointer to anyone new to this who is attempting to rebuild their scooby. You might be tempted to save a few quid and reinstall the modine oil cooler. My advice to anyone is bin it! Although this little puppy looks clean and however much you try to clean this, bearing fragments will undoubtedly be caught in all the little nooks and crannys. If I were to install this back on my new build I'm pretty certain that all those new bearings would get a coating of previous bearing fragments.

That's just my friendly advice

Nice work so far fella [emoji106]

Good point with the modine, I just had mine chucked into the engineers hot wash a few times but it was running fine when I pulled it apart [emoji15] [emoji5]

Are you giving it a refresh or fitting some upgrades on re assembly ?

Best of luck adam and keep us posted bud [emoji106]

No exotic upgrades for this one. It's gonna have a new crankshaft new rods new modine and high volume oil pump. I have a couple more ej20 lumps in my workshop I might do something with one of the others using forged parts in the future etc... but for the moment I'm just keeping this one standard ;-). The misses already complains because I'm spending too much time in my man cave lol.

Hi guys

I'm sorry it's been ages since I last posted about my rebuild.

I have been out of the country etc.

Well I'm back now and back on it with a vengeance.

Just received a few bits this morning so I'm starting to put it back together shortly after this post.

Regards

Adam
