Blue engines always tricky
Well that 1159cc blue engine is a real mixture of things, its got 1256cc crank and con rods which is really annoying, as I had a nice STD 1159cc crank and got new bearings, I fitted it all to find the conrods hit the side of the block!!! BUGGER the silly recon people have fitted the wrong crank and rod the the engine, which now means all the parts I have just bought are no use for this engine. It now means I have to go out and get another 1256cc crank and new bearings to match!
Not the end of the world as I can use the 1159cc crank and the new bearings in the SL90 engine i just had rebored to 0.040″. One less things to worry about when it comes to building that one I guess.
Once these two are done its just recheck Marvins old engine and all the engine work is finished for OHV lumps, next comes the Slant 4 and learning to weld.
