    Extraterestrial UFOs?

    Obviously news of the P6 has reached the far flung corners of the cosmos ........I'm guessing with their advanced fuels they'll be after 10.5 : 1 early V8's which they can fill with 5 star........though how they'll condense 5 stars to fit in the tank goodness knows!

    Piston Ring query

    Thanks Harvey. Both the original and the new AE come with the two thin rings for either side of the 'mesh' ring but I was confused by the convuluted ring which does keep the thin rings in place to the top and bottom of the groove either side of the oil control mesh so I expected to see them in...

    Piston Ring query

    Replacing the rings on my 2000. The top pic shows the originals which butted together (I think) and were held in place by the convuluted ring in the groove. The second pic shows the AE NOS replacements. No convuluted ring and I'm assuming they somehow are supposed to interlock together but I've...

    Hairline Crack

    Well spotted. I had look and it doesn't extend round the back so I think I'll give it a go anyway. Once the sump is bolted to it it will provide some measure of support.

    Hairline Crack

No idea if it was there before as i only spotted it when I cleaned it all up and just about to start the rebuild. When I got the car it was clearly knackered and in need...

    2000 Conrod STD bearings required.

    Anyone got a set of std conrod (big end) bearings for a 2000 they want to sell. My local engineer has refused to regrind my crank to match the +010 set I had on the shelf cos is so close to original tolerances it would be criminal to regrind it! :):) I think the original part number is RTC1715S...
