more work done tonight on the mk3

all valves are in and springs on
lapping valves like a boss, with fast ford mag!
Image

Image

Image

2 new exhaust valves

Image

Image


Image

Image

Image


crowns de-coked, block mating surface cleaned

Image

Image

Image

was fun trying to get pistons to TDC turning the key :lol:


all valves in

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image


just the followers left now, spare valves...

Image


Image



tomorrow it should be put back on the block, just tappets a few gaskets, thermostat housing and head bolts left

considering stripping the carburettor down, as they need annual maintenance its likely due, and i have new seals and gaskets for it

comments welcome!
more tomorrow :)

Update

got each of the tappets fitted and adjusted to 0.025mm gap on the exhaust, 0.020mm on the inlet

Image


fitting the thermostat

Image

Image

cleaned the bolts up

Image


fitted the head and gasket, the 10 bolts in place ready for torquing sequence

Image

Image


cam cover gasket

Image


cam cover mucky old bolts...

Image


... were given a new lease of life

Image

Image


fitted

Image


new exhaust gaskets

Image


on... new air ratchet makes such light work of nuts and bolts :) and will set them all to 50lbs/ft too

Image


inlet gasket... notice the water inlet pipe between port 2 and 3?
in my mind its bad design to have water flowing so close to the inlet ports, if a leak happened it could destroy con rods letting water int he chambers

Image


done for last night, got in at 1AM!

Image


these arrived today, handy quick air line couplings

Image

Image

Image



timed up and all together minus the air box

Image



slight snag, i dont have a clue about distributors, nor how to time them up

im getting spark, but i dont know if its firing at the right time.. doesnt help that the dizzy is loose and turns by hand!

can any one give advice?

i know its fueling, plus ive been pouring petrol down the carb, only managed 1 hickup from it :(

ordered a few bits


Powerspark ignition stroke timing light

and

Powerspark pointless electronic ignition kit



the electronic ignition kit is a great piece of kit, my fathers mk1 has it on the 1.6 pinto, basicly takes away the moving trigger arm which needs regapping and wears over time, these use magnets instead

car starts first time everytime and produces a better stronger spark!
