Oh while I think about getting bits.
What sort of hylomar do people put on the liner gasket that goes between the head and barrel?
Also thinking of reusing my oil pump cover plate. It did have some score marks on where the old pump gears where against it. I know it needs to be a nice flat surface so I've been using some fine wet and dry on it to get the scuffs and scratches out, needs more work but I'll get a marker pen and draw some lines across it when I next do some sanding on it so I can gauge how flat it is.
I can send to you my spare gasket set if needed?
I followed Itchy's rebuild and put a fine finger wipe smear of blue Holymar (very technical) on both sides of rings between liners and heads. A belts and braces approach, apparently. But as l haven't run engine yet....who can say!
As for the oil pump plate? I gave it a visual inspection. Front plate looked fine. So l fitted a new gasket and set nuts to correct torque with some Holymar on the threads.
Moving date 4th May. Coincidentally Maxine's birthday.
Thanks for the offer Stu, Heritage seem to think it should be this week or next for the Victor Reinz sets to come back in stock.
Yeah I've read his and other threads but when looking up whats best to use some say Hylomar AF some say Blue. Both are non setting so what's the difference? I guess for the purposes and amount that I'd need wouldn't have thought it would make a difference.
I might take you up on that offer and ship you mine when it gets here if its going to take another month or so!
Although thinking about it and the heads, I haven't checked to see what the valve wear is like on the exhaust valves, they seem to seal pretty well, did a test of just filling up the intake and exhaust ports on the head with parts cleaner and waited to see if there was any leakage from them. Only two of the exhaust ones weeped a bit, so I should at least lap them, but you know, in for a penny and all that
I've ordered the correct oil pump nuts with the sealing rings on them, I know fancy right! along with a new oil relief spring and adapter for a vdo thermostat to sit there. Been draggin my face against the underside of the van today installing wiring for the pressure and temp gauges, no ramps or stands as the syncro is currently residing on them so that was fun.
Thanks for that CE I've been looking but everywhere keeps saying out of stock of hylomar so I think Ill nab a tube from them sharpish.300CE wrote: ↑18 Apr 2021, 19:11 I used Hylomar AF on mine (scroll down for AF):

I’ve dug out my old rebuild link if that helps at all:
I've seen your build as well, I think I've gone through everyone of them on the forums.
I hope mine (and Stu's) goes as well as yours!
