the time has come to reassembly the XJ6 SII engine.
New stock size top hat cylinder bores, new +10 crankshaft bearings, crankshaft it self needed only a good polishing.
I am now here:
I have read lots of threads, watched many videos, including this one:
- Oil soaked rope seals
- Assembly lube
- GM sealant
- Oil resistant RTV
- Spare crankshaft (good condition) to use as main rear seal sizing tool
- Lint free cloth
- Razor blades
- Torque wrench
My objective for next Saturday is to fit the main rear seal and crankshaft in under 3 hours.
I’d love last words of wisdom before I get into what seems to be a procedure reminding me of the operating theater and orthopedic surgery…
