New project for me,
After the unfortunate miss haps of the aubergine 5 door and the craving for a 3 door i really wanted one,

Had a look at this one with Dave5300 after i got pm'd from a guy from an irish ford website, nice chap! a friend of his wanted to get rid of the car but wanted a good home! Picked it up the next day! :P

Its a 91 1.1 LX, 115000 miles on the clock, Its been garaged for half its life or not on the road either/or! :lolz:

Small bit of rust and damage here and there but for the price i can't complain!! excellent condition compared to some ive seen!

Few of the lads were helping me strip it out, one of them decided to pull the spark plugs out and one of the tops fell into the engine but didnt realise, decided to start it later on that night and plenty of weird noises happened that night be it from me and the car :lol:

A bit of carpet cleaning :P
Image

Stripped the head down to inspect the damage
Image

Image

Started cleaning it all up
Image

Image

Luckly We decided to pull out the piston to clean out the cylinder
Found that the Piston was totally bolo><ed!
Image
All that just after some aluminium and ceramic!

Rebuilt and cleaned up the rocker arm and co!
Image

New piston thanks to Dave!
Image

New Gasket Kit
Image

Image

Image

Started to grind away the Rust and primer over for some protection

Yeah had it running, Still some knocking from the bottom end, I know the rings werent great on piston two which was banjaxed! Engine sounded sweet before apart from the tappets and not being serviced since 2002!?? Its mad how the whole piston cracked all the way around, probably bent the crank the slightest bit? Dono...

Think ill throw the 1.6 and the whole Si loom into this one and have it up to date but still looking retroish! :P

that red Xr looky is stunning!

i was gonna say it aint an Si bumper was the Si looking rs accessory bumper :0

also great work stripping the HCS, id get all the pistons replaced with the crank imo and the rods, but it aint really worth it on one of them engines, a replacement engine is much easier
