Oh Heck!! i dont know what the hell is happening in the world these days, on friday i ordered a set of wide spec big end shells made by kolbenschmidt in lead bronze material, the stupid ****ers sent me ones for the ecotec, not xe, i was hoping to get the engine complete this weekend...now the damn place is shut
They are very silimar, except when you put the bearing into the conrod, a very small amount protrudes from the cap and the rod
I am certaily sure that they are wrong, but just want to confirm that the XE and ecotecs share a different big
so they7 have supplied me with shells from eng no 14137012> p/no 90010459 ...incidently these are the wider ones, now i had another look last night and they seemed to fit, i know dimensions are measured in micro milimeters for thses things...ill just have to wait and call them on monday...
I guess the two being different interms of width as already mentioned?
