1098 engine

Postby JOWETTJAVELIN » Tue Dec 28, 2021 2:49 pm

1098 engine with distributor, dynamo, manifold as pictured. Engine turns freely. Cylinder head is loose to inspect the bores - I was going to use this engine myself but then came by a 948 which is right for my car.

£150 ono Littleborough Lancashire 07791209789 please call if interested.

Going by the engine number, that is a low compression van(?) unit.

would i be right in thinking, a LC engine has a deeper dish in the piston crown?

A HC engine has only a small dished top?

And is that the only difference between the 2?

Yes, the crowns are dished. It could have ordinary high compression pistons put in, I even had a set.

For what it’s worth, I had an ex-council car a few years ago fitted with the original low compression 1098 engine in good order and it pulled as well as any high compression one I’ve owned. I don’t think the performance difference is huge - 45bhp vs. 48 bhp if memory serves.
