Engine Rebore

Post by RobHart555 » April 23rd, 2020, 11:27 am

Hi All,

I have finally found the time to strip my 1800 TC engine which is in a kit car and was originally in a 132.
It had been standing for quite a few years so I am not surprised to find some corrosion damage in the bores, so it will need a rebore.
Can anyone point me in the direction of a trusted machine shop I can approach to get the necessary work done, I am in Kent(UK), the more local the better!
Also, I am hoping oversize pistons are still available, if so, what sizes?

Thanks in advance for any replies,

Rob.

Thanks Guy, I’ll give them a try.

Are you able to advise on availability of oversize pistons? Are you able to supply these?

Thanks,

Rob.

NO!!!

All I supply are GC forged pistons made by JE

what you are seeking - virtually unobtainable.

Beware of US sourced cast alternatives.
