Poppet valve on the tempory B230E

Posted Apr 10th, 2018 at 18:10 by BrianH

The head was soft (unknown age) and when it was refurbished, I gave the wrong it wrong 2

Alex to put the B200E head on from the orignal engine (1989). Cost 702. Belts, idle bearings etc. all done to. Gearbox oil changed to Amsoil sythetic synco to improve bulking, about 85% better. Ouch again.

In 12 months this car has doubled its cost per mile. But now I have reached a calm period.

Now running really well. So pleased. The upper valve lubrication I installed did not help the soft head in my case. Be warned!
