Big list hey... :laugh:
Lol maybe when I'm on a mission and have a plan and a short given schedule, then I'll work on it till the end. But this turbo project has been quite a laid back pace to gather and plan stuff cos I had to wait till me insurance renews to change over. Come April when conversion begins, it'll be full steam ahead againPollyp, you eat, sleep, breathe Micra (Y)(Y)(Y)
Where do you find time for the rest :laugh:
Good luck with the plan!!!(Y)
Collect JE forged piston engine from NoddiePaul came down yesterday to get the engine (yes, he drove the 6hours here, and he will be nearly home by now i guess!)
Was a pleasure to meet you mate! Looking forward to seeing that engine kicking out some serious power!!
Naa not tired after havin me tea and being on a mission to get this engine ready n prepped. I'm sure the tolerances are fine, just personally prefer to fit the cleaned bits off the turbo engine since i spent so long cleaning em and logically I may as well put the best bits on this forged engine.You don't mess about mate!! I would be in bed sleeping the drive off haha, or down the pub
That head ain't that bad, blimey It looked in good nick when we checked it over and the tolerances will all be right as they are... personally I don't think you need to clean it, its just a bit of oil staining, but that's just my opinion...
If you are going to change anything over it should be the pneumatic chain tensioner as that was the only bit we put back on that looked a little worn (still fine, but not perfect).
Sorry about the dirt in the plug holes did give them a blow out with the air line but obviously not enough...
Damn I already just brought 5quarts of the royal purple stuff off ebay. Shall I email em to double check if it's only for startup or for beddin in? Or return the stuffHi Pollyp
All the engines i have ever built or seen others build or seen new from the factory got straight forward engine oil then changed at 500miles for whatever oil and filter you prefer.
Will you not have to re shim the cams and whatnot when you swap them? but its up to you mate.Naa not tired after havin me tea and being on a mission to get this engine ready n prepped.

The dirt in plugs could've came from anywhere during storage. Was just precaution to clean all ports before takin plugs out
i'm not swappin the cams n shims so they'll stay in spec, just gonna clean em up.Will you not have to re shim the cams and whatnot when you swap them? but its up to you mate.
are your cleaned up bits in good condition too then? I would go for condition rather than cleanliness if I were you as they will soon get dirty again eh
Not sure what flow the gts-t pump is, one thread said bout 245?Awesome what's the lph rating Paul? Not long now eh mate
