Re: Euphemisms

The Ginger bush is tucked up nice and warm but there is no signs of my purple morning glory. I stopped posting my horticultural experiences as I was getting negative replies to my posts.

Re: can this block be rebored ?

Hi Phill

The picture on Ebay certainly looks like the washer I'm talking about but the hole in the centre is too small to go over the crankshaft but it would go over the camshaft and the starter dog.

Re: can this block be rebored ?

Timing gears all on but I'm a bit mystified. In the kit that a came with the duplex gear there is a lock washer, a felt seal which I know goes on the crankshaft together with the oil thrower with the stamped F to the front but there is a domed washer in the kit the hole in the centre is too small to...

Re: can this block be rebored ?

The timing gears will certainly not just push on, they are extremely tight do they need heating ?

Re: can this block be rebored ?

The rebuild is coming along slowly. Two questions, I have installed the oil pump after priming it with oil, there is a tin lid that sits in the back plate covering the oil pump in the workshop manual it shows it as a potential source of oil leakage but there doesn't appear to be any gasket or sealan...

Re: can this block be rebored ?

I think I have found the cause of the tightness in turning the engine over. I undid the big end bearings and turned the caps round and torqued each one up then tried turning the crankshaft again each time I tightened the bearings up. The engine now turns over fairly easily albeit a bit stiff but I s...

Re: can this block be rebored ?

Hi Phil
Yes the crankshaft was turning as it should but was getting progressively stiffer as I put the pistons in. I could turn it just about until I torqued the con rod bearings up after that I couldn't turn it.

Re: can this block be rebored ?

Well all the big ends are in place and have been torqued up to 60 as per the workshop manual. I have managed to get the pistons in and have torqued the connecting rod bearings up to 35. Whilst building the engine I have used copious amounts of oil and have been turning the engine over which has beco...

Re: can this block be rebored ?

Well the block is now back having been bored +20 and have pistons to fit. As PTH advised have new core plugs to fit whats the best way of removing the old ones and what sealant do I put the new ones in with? I have a reconditioned crankshaft, cylinder head and rocker shaft all ready to fit together ...

Re: can this block be rebored ?

I took the block to the engineering shop to be measured. I was told it was a standard block which had never been rebored although there was a bit of wear so it's going to be rebored +20.

Re: can this block be rebored ?

I intend to have an exchange crankshaft complete with bearings etc. The shells on the old one are showing signs of wear as the copper is starting to show through but I've seen worse. As its all in pieces anything else I should be looking at ?
Is a duplex timing gear a good idea.

I don't know of any police force CID that used black Morris Minors but I could be wrong. A giveaway for a panda would be the Zip in the headlining.

Re: can this block be rebored ?

Thanks chaps for all your replies.I did think that as the pistons didn't have any +20, +40 stamped on them the block might have been standard which would mean there will be plenty of meat left for reboring. The bores have a very minor amount of surface rust on them. Thanks Bob for the offer of rebor...

can this block be rebored ?

I have been given a complete 1098cc engine everything is there but its all in pieces. I have cleaned one of the pistons off and there are numbers and letters i.e. m2007 front mowog 844. Can this block be rebored or has it been rebored to its capacity. There are no +20, 40 etc stamped on the piston.
