Yes, it’s in a MKV DHC, but the engine is from a MK IV, I think a LHD Saloon exported to USA (but do not know for sure) engine nr. SL2199.
What do I need? A LOT!
Well technically only a few parts are damaged, but as one part is the engine block itself (cylinder nr. four has a large hole into a water passage in it. so I think it would be better to renew some other parts at the same time.
Only one valve took a hit (and broke to pieces, the exhaust valve in cyl nr four.)
One piston fell into bits and pieces, all parts were found in the sump, together with 10 liters of cooling fluid.
As I will HAVE TO remove EVERYTHING from the block for fitting liners and possibly some welding should be done as well, I think I may take Ed’s route for the resurfacing of the crank to use Chevy bearings.
So is it just Chevy mains, that is the seven main bearings for the crank?
If so, which Chevy parts? Or for which Chevy engine?
And the big end and small end and con rods and wrist pins?
The engine currently has, or had XK 3.4L high compression pistons in +0.030" oversize.
The con rods seem all fine, nr. 4 has a sign of some part hitting it, but very small and the rod is straight.
They have part number C7017 * 5 on them.
Although it ran great, I would not recommend that to anyone, as I can see now, in cylinder number four, why boring beyond standard +0.030" like they say in the factory service manual, is not good, but new liners should be fitted. The block may break!
So standard 82mm pistons, from where?
I guess I should have the new pistons at hand before having the engine block welded and fitted with new liners?
Photos will follow once I figure out my password again and can log into form my phone or find the time to move the photos to my laptop etc…
Or does someone happen to have engine block with number available??? (my car’s original engine)
