My block is now within half a thousandth of an inch across all 4 cylindres in terms of ovality and bore straightness.
Well impressed at the engineer being able to sort that.
Sadly found another problem now though, whatever fool did up the oil pipes over tightened them, so badly so thats its caused a crack which as its in the casting next to the block wall means that its written off the brand new block.
Anyone want to buy a brand new block bored and honed to perfection to within half a thou but then ruined by the previous owners assembly skills?
Start the bidding at 50p?
Could make an interesting coffee table with a sheet of glass on it, or maybe a 4 bottle wine rack?
Oh well, time to throw it in the bin if no one wants it and start again with a nice 150K mile xe block ive got lieing around at c20letmini's place from where i left it about 4 years ago!
