  1. Rebuilt with new fuel pumps - rails have pressure. 10 ltrs of Millers run-in oil and we have oil pressure. video-1620583523.mp4
  2. Great write-up Dave. Locally sourced for the grand total of 31.58€ incl. shipping.
  3. At the beginning of this thread are the Service Notes section WA (single SIR) for Code 21. Here below are the related pages from the Service Notes WC.4 (dual SIR) related to Code 21. Follow the decision tree. It could be a connection issue. Unfortunately, I do not know the resistance of the load tool, so you may be limited in your responses.
  4. Andy you are right. The service notes are written to support correct positioning of the outer tube, which also needs to attach to the rear of the RH cam cover. On the amount of oil, the service manual states an oil refill of 6.5 ltr but you must remember that when performing an oil change the oil coolers do not drain. When you are performing an initial fill of the complete system you will require something much more like your observed 8.5 ltrs.
  5. Had a great visit from Andrä Schroers today. I'm absolutely thrilled at the standard of the his carbon work. Although still at the experimental stage, the finish and fit of his arch work is really excellent. So much more to come in the fullness of time. No wonder I'm grinning like an idiot....
  6. Hi Dave, I tried to send you a message, but that didn't work. Can you share the Build Register data that you have for the S350s? Kind regards, Mike S
  7. Are the pistons fitted with the correct orientation in those affected cylinders?....
  8. That looks normal and is removed when the chain is under light pressure. In the image I can see that your IMS shaft bearings are ball race. Those should be upgraded to the later style roller bearings.
  9. There is a small play when fitting but once the gears are in position and the snubbers in place, there is no slack movement.
  10. Have a heart..... English is not the sellers Mother tongue. This is not going to be everyones cup of tea, but imagine the work that went into this project.
  11. I just want to add that those who are committed to these kits may also wish to consider taking the chargecooler optimised 1 bar boost ECU calibration that I offer. This will elevate your power level to between 450-470bhp, depending on your turbos. Please PM me for details
  12. Thanks Chris for the update. That's a single pass unit. I had hoped that they would include the twin-pass unit pictured below. Maybe you can ask then if that is a configurable option?
  13. I would agree that if you do strip them, then clearing behind the baffles is essential. The rivets can be removed and tapped carefully to a minimum safe depth. I was forced to do this on Simon's engine as someone had sprayed inside the cam covers and the paint was coming off. With care, removing the rivets and tapping is a good option.
  14. This seems like a real opportunity for someone. Engine sounds fine. If it really is a V8-GT, then even better. Has the right interior, but with the earlier rear wing. Still a lot of running car for the money.
  15. I found the reference in the Service Notes: When fitting a new dipstick tube, mark the tube at 103mm from the bottom. This marking must coincide with the top surface of the dipstick hole in the block. This is consitent with the 110mm from the bottom of the tube to the top if the locking nut.
  16. Working 100% from home office, so getting a little bit done each day.
  17. Not a huge fan of Rawl nuts, but they certainly have their place - PAS lines fitted.
  18. Well it finally arrived from Greece this morning - the long awaited carbon steering cowl.
  19. The standard turbo floating bush bearing will want a constant flow of fresh pressurised and cooled oil for optimal lubrication. As the oil return is gravity based, you want that to be free of any obstructions (including sump oil level). For turbos with a ball bearing cartridge, you would want an oil restrictor on the turbo feed side, but again the return should be free to the sump.
  20. The measurement from the top of the locknut to the bottom of the dipstick tube is exactly 110mm. There was a special Engineering tool for setting the depth and it is specified in one of the manuals.

    V8 BLOCK

    I have a V8 block which can be used as a basis for a sound engine build. I've PM'd you.
  22. Good to see - enjoy the evening drive. We have a blizzard going on outside at the moment. My (only) S4S was N577GEX
