Alex's v8 re-build thread warning pic whore inside >:)


Recommended Posts

When I had powder coating done the ally was chemically stripped not blasted. I suspect the same process here.

Suspension, brakes, chipped, chargecooler rad and pump,injectors,ignition coils and leads, BOV, highflow cat and zorst, Translator and tie rods, Head lights, LEDs to tail lights and interior,Polybushes to entire front end, Rad fans, rad grill, front end refurb with aluminium spreaderplates and galvanised bolts. Ram air, uprated fuel pump, silicone hoses through out, wheels refurbed and powder coated,much more, all maintenance.

There under orders not to blast that's why I had them dipped but when they come back I am going to submerge them in fluid to make sure they didn't .I have a friend with a sonic cleaner too so if they do ignore me I can get the stuff out don't worry everything is going in this engine I'm not leaving anything to chance .

I also chatted briefly to Jay this evening from JAE head gaskets for the states with racing belts 10 days woo hoo and I've also found a stock supplier of hylomar for my liners so all go at the moment . Today's plan is to clean and paint g box dress the heads remove the cams so the valves are safe for when I faff around Turing the crank to get the con rods tightened .also ordered some more rubber seals aaaaaaand some stainless pipe fittings for the turbo water feeds . Just the clutch left to find and order .

And a massive thanks to southwest lotus for the help info and stuff James and phil good guys

Looks great, what are you painting the block with? As I'm about to rebuild my engine.

Thanks

First go to machine mart and buy a mains drill then same store they do a pack of twisted steel coated in brass wire wheels remove all bits in the way and get cleaning when it's dust free I used a air compressor and nozzle to blast off the crap use silver smooth Hammerite first coat seals the pores of the alloy , using 50 p brushes from the range soak the used brush in petrol in a cap or something this attacks the cheap bristles and frays them a little then when the first coat is dry clean the bush and re paint but stippling and dabbing to creat a bobbly finish it looks weird wet watch out for runs but drys to a lovely powdered finish like a spray but without the over spray .

So got the car down the garage firstly for a wash and polish and then sorting the brakes need some new rear calipers ?

Fcp1348h

Fcp1560h

As I've been bleeding on about them I thought I'd share my genius these are the part numbers for the ferodo ds2500 brake pads for the esprit v8

And hylomar 3400 for our liners is apparently un available any more if you go to a land rover specialist and ask for Stc4600 it's our hylomar re branded and used on freelanders :) your welcome
