Stage 4. Engine rebuild

Written by: sarah

After taking the head off the engine, we could see that water had obviously been getting into a couple of the cylinders. This has unfortunately meant a total stripdown and rebuild of the engine. New liners, pistons and valves have been put in, so just the block is original. The engine is the 85mm Standard Motor Company petrol engine (2088cc). Once rebuilt, everything has to go back onto the tractor to see if it works – success as it starts up after a few tweaks!! ………Then everything all has to come back off AGAIN to get the tractor ready for shot blasting 🙁
