First check in, in a while and happy to see a build still going - mines coming out of 'storage' soon so I'll have to get some pics up. Where do you find your parts these days? I want an engine!

Wheres the thread for yours?

Parts... hmmm... facebook groups I guess. It has dried up though. Luckily OEM style stuff for service items are still plentyful from motorfactors.

I'll soon be just a case of going to the remaining tuners for bits I reckon. Depending on what you're doing with it, of course.

I have the guts of a J4 in various pieces, just in case.
I'm sure I've seen some complete engines going for circa £400 over the past 12 months.

Awesome work man. Nice to see a project still actually being projected rather than the dobbers on facebook who take a Saxo, pull the seats out it for a track car m8 and then thats it.

I've been chipping away. No rush.

Engine is all timed up and belt cover is on.
I painted the block.
Then painted the cam covers and they look ace.



I sold my old 4 paddle and bought a new 6 paddle. I decided not to go for the extra expense of a lug drive and just turn the boost down, if this doesn't like it.



Will continue with the ancillaries and inlet this next week. I'm cleaning up all the bolts etc, just because I can. Might as well make it look half decent.

Then onto making a turbo support bracket.

The previous build of this engine maybe ran about 100 miles, if that.
Yet the water circuit was full of rust. Like a very fine bright orange dusting everywhere. Water pump, galleries, thermostat. The coolant was probably 75% antifreeze as well.



It was very bizarre. If you've bothered to read this far, you may recall there was constantly air in the coolant after a spirited drive. Not sure if that was a contributory issue to the corrosion. Anyway, the engine and head have been pressurised and cleaned, so maybe what was once there, is not now.

In the throws of making a support bracket for the turbo. It was previously just hanging from the collector and I'm sure it will break soon. This might help prolong it a little. I've also added a brace on the downpipe to attach to the gearbox. Although you can't see anything on this photo.
