Restoration of Dutch Peerless Phase2

I used to work in the print industry when MEK and Toluene were regularly used as thinners. I well remember my boss in the design studio keeling over during an air brushing session using print inks thinned with MEK. Such fun.

And the print inks were used on........

Biscuit wrappers! Those were the days.

Wednesday i finally got the call from the engine shop that my parts were ready.

So just back from holyday, i went to pick up the stuff this afternoon.

Fully ground and balanced crankshaft, flywheel and pressure plate.

Skimmed head, with new seats, guides and custom made valves. 

Complete gasket set.

High torque camshaft from Kent and new followers.

I will also get an upgraded crank seal, but i'm going to modify the crank myself to save a little money

because financially these parts hurt a bit.

Anyways, happyhappyjoyjoy

oooooowh shiny shiny Erik!

Do your cam followers have a drilling in the side to allow oil out? 

I had a very bad experience (well with a Peerless to be onest I had more than a few!) with cam followers from a well known supplier. They were so badly machined they wouldn't even go down the bore in the block, one got stuck!

I complained and he said "I dont use those, there crap...use these" they were coated black, came in from the states and they had a very thin line down the side. He said that was where each one had been tested for size.

He also let slip they were standard issue for MGC engines, so off the shelf item.

they fitted a treat and I kind of get the idea about allowing the oil out as they dont need to be full to the top all the time.
