when your on a track and chucking it into a corner all the oil sloshes to the side of the sump and the oil pickup can suck air for a split second and run dry, a baffled sump prevents the oil sloshing about and keeps the oil pickup constanly imersed in oil so it never sucks air :thumbsup:

Also an addidtion for the cam and lifters too...

Finally built up my inlet too.. All crackle painted, polished fuel rail, beige injectors, all good to go...

Last but not least i have brought a 6 point cage thats going to be painted white...

With regards the pistons and rods i was waiting for them to come from germany but now been advised all good to go... So fingers crossed next few weeks the build will kick off...

Cheers

Hello all,

Been a long time since i have updated this thread...

I have been spending a bit of £££

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

So now i have got all of these i have dropped it all off to the machine shop to get block honed for pistons and also fit rods...

Also while it was out decided to clean up the box and give it a lick of paint...

Image

Image

Image

Image

Hopefully get the block back and all bits ready to be built up over the next few weeks then get a few miles on it before the really bad weather sets in...

Cheers

Tiller

Hello all....

here is a long overdue update.....

I have stripped down the front part of the rollcage and had it painted...

Image

Image

Image

Image

And the colour i decided to go with to match my track wheels... Nissan White Cotton

Image

Getting all preped for the etch primer...

Image

Image

Now Painted

Image

Image

Image

Image

Also while paint was in the gun so to speak i decided on doing this too....

Image

Image

Painted...

Image

Image

Image

I guess only time will tell if that will be the right decision... lol

As you can see i have got the block, crank, pistons attached to rods

Image

It seems a shame to fit them to the engine they are a work of art...!!

So the bottom end light build up has started...

Fitted pistons and rods to block, also crank and main and big ends...

Image

Image

Image

Fitted with ARP Bolts...

Image

I have also brought some sealant to help the build along...

Image

Hopefully ensure of no leaks

Also on my ebay hunt i have come across the 1.8cvh Rocker cover with cap for 99p

Image

Another ebay buy has been the Cosworth rear exhaust housing .48 i need to use due to the slight relocation of my turbo with the tubular manifold.

Image

Hopefully look like this...

Image

Then just need somebody to make me a custom downpipe like so...

Image

So all in all its a step in the right direction..

Next month will be fitting all the oil pump, water pump, rear cover. Then will be onto the build of the head.

Thanks for looking please feel free to comment...

Cheers

Tiller
