350 Engine repair

Post by hounddog » Fri Apr 13, 2018 11:54 pm

Been busy stripping my 350 engine down .
Massive thanks to Mick MT Bandit for all your time and help with the dismantling

we only had to drill out one allen screw so that wasn't too bad

Had been suffering excessive vibration that started at Wye valley last year ,knew there was something wrong but couldn't quite work out what at first , but on taking it all apart discovered one of the main bearings was on its way out , so will replace the pair.

then its just the small matter of putting it all back together :o All the internals are bagged up in freezer bags with labels
everything else looks fine

Will be upgrading to a 405 while I'm at it and thanks Gary Minter for words of wisdom as always
Thanks also to George PI Staker for your advice

hopefully will be back together and running again in the not too distant - quite an enjoyable project and a learning curve !
