Engine Refit (NEW 24/04/04)

As the body shell was having a rebuild I decided while the engine was out of the engine bay i would give her a little freshen up

BUT that turned out to be a bit expensive as more was wrong than we had hoped for,
The horror facing me when the engine was stripped down,
The big end shells gone to copper,
Second shot of worn big end bearings,
to be safe I had the con rods tested for the journals being Oval, (and they were)
The crank main bearings also had worn down to copper, Second shot of crank, a recon crank unit and rods was needed from Real Steel, A.S.A.P,
The full engine rebuild can be viewed over the next 3 pages,
