This issue still hasn't been completely resolved.
And dodging around the last month's fires and smoke hasn't helped.
However as suggested by some of you Parts
4 Engines in the UK have been great and had the parts
to me in 3 days.
The original cause of the disaster was the breakage of a pre combustion chamber that fell into the cylinder thus destroying the piston. These pre combustion chambers while being a critical part of the engine
cannot be purchased new. Even though they are a separate and press fit in the head
, suppliers told me they only come as part of a new head
I eventually had 2 of them sent to me from a motor salvage
company in Britain. I am still amazed there doesn't appear to be anything fixing these things in place. They are pressed into the head then the injectors screw in on top with a gap of about 20mm.
When I got the motor
back together and started, it ran slowly for around 10 minutes then seized. The first thing I thought was "Great, another broken pre combustion chamber and piston."
But those were all fine, it's a seized conrod bearing from low oil
At last, something I know how to deal with.
