My 'New' engine.

Hi Guys, So after much deliberation I have decided against the V8 swap as my wallet simply doesn't allow it! :D On my prior quest to find a V8 i spoke to a really nice chap with a factory V8 and a roadster that he was converting to a V8.

Re: Replacement Cylinder head

I didnt realise that he can make any head to the 12h2709 spec. I have only seen a couple non 2709 heads come up on Ebay, all being returned already. Maybe it's just a waiting game! How much should I be looking to spend on a standard centre oil feed head?

Cracked Head

Hi Guys, Hope everyone's doing well. Unfortunately upon cleaning the head up this weekend to send off the Peter Burgess (for the ecotune work), I have noticed a crack between cyl 1 and 2 (see pics below). I emailed some pics to Peter himself and he thinks the head is toast. This wouldn't worry that ...

Re: Engine rebuild

Hi Peter, Thanks again for the reply. Sorry yes you're right, ill need cam followers regardless. Did you see the picture of the wear that I attached? Each pushrod is worn in the same way, its an odd wear pattern is it not? Yeah i have read about running the engine at 2000+ revs for at-least 20 minut...
