evil bay c20let parts
« on: May 30, 2018, 21:44:31 PM »
Seems this week there are loads of c20let blocks, cranks, conrods with pistons going cheap (ish) great if your rebuilding a standard engine making it a bit tougher. I won´t be bidding as the Mrs is scanning the account every day after a bit of a splurge recently.

I grabbed a 20E cylinder head last week as I want to rebuild it first before swapping it on my daily driver C20NE 8V Calibra. Don´t want to take the head off, clean it then know I should replace the valve guides, bed in the valves etc. Just want to swap them over fast and use the car the same day.

Every engine I have had gets coked up and has valve and head gasket issues around 90,000 so I am putting the mileage clock back to zero by doing this now. When I did the timing belt I replaced the rocker gasket which looked original (and leaking), took the chance to once over the camshaft.  The lobes looked in good condition and a screwdriver stethoscope test on the rocker cover with engine ticking over was quiet but a bit lumpy - maybe the valves not seating the best.

The 20E head is off a GTE Astra and is supposedly an upgrade to the NE, may have to match the inlet ports to the manifold unless anyone knows different? :-\
