Engine.

Engine stand nearly five years in the corner of garage.



Before I put the engine back, I decided to check the reason of low pressure in first cylinder.
First I removed the cylinder head. The view was not the best.





The liners and pistons was worn to last limit.



Cylinder head.
The valve guides was worn.
The exhaust valves are burned and in first cylinder one inlet valve was twisted. That was the reason of low pressure.



Pulling out the old liners with a self made "JH special tool"



Cylinder block after the first cleaning

I am massively impressed with your work, it is all looking very nice! It all looks very familiar, including the kinks in the channels under the floor pans. Does every JH have these? I guess they come from jacking the car in the incorrect spot.

Also, I hope you added some compression to the engine in the rebuild? The new pistons are 9.5:1?

It was a "short" story of my eight years journey in the wonderful world of Jensen Healey.

Thanks,
