lol, id post a pic up to show you the sbd 1700 td bearings fitted in my block, lol, but the file size is too large to upload. all bearings from the 1700td are fitted, ie the mains and the big ends and they are all tourqed up, so they fit, and if they fit, then they work.
its simple really, if sbd build loony powered engines and fit 1700td bearings in em and have done for years, then its gonna work for me aswell, and you lot.
anyway.....................back to fitting my oil pump water pump etc then the head can go back on, wahey
Fair statement but there are several 1.7TD's that Vauxhall/Sabb/izuzu make, so I don't know if all 1.7TD are the same size in the block. If they are then it dosn't matter and I'll order Vauxhall 1.7TD Cavalier bearing shells.
