Well it's that time for the ENGINE the eeeeyuuk time as you can see from it it had not been out since it was put in gleaming from the factory so the 30 years of grime oil spill's (not by me) that collected over the year's
It's a wonder it did not add weight to it even the gearbox was filthy anyway it was part striped as you have to take starter and alternator and the rad off so it would drop from below yes mine has to go from the bottom not the top like some so was a challenge to get the reliant up high enough for it come out so set to stripping all that need to come off.
I took off the rocker and ohh it's looks like I caught it in time the head gasket must have be going explains why it was running a bit rough and few other things the engine mounts were broken too but it did look nice all cleaned down but apart from all gunk it had on everything was all ok it had some new seal's to replace front and back and have the gasket it done as well I had ordered new dizzy and cap new plug's oil filter gasket set piston's look fine crank look ok no score's put new timing chain on and tensioner new engine mounts and gearbox mount's then when everything was back it was time to paint up the engine.
Well that's it for this year will continue after the new year thanks for following my project through these coming month's I promise it will be finished soon not much more to do but paint up the engine tune up and put back in the reliant so until see you in the new year
Thanks - Kevin
