I am looking for sources for the necessary parts for rebuilding my engine: wet liners, pistons, sprocket gears, gasket set, may be more.
The motor is now at a specialist workshop (Peter Bazille, B&F Touring Garage). I will know soon if the wet liners that are now in the motor can be reused. I was told the absolute minimum wall thickness is 3mm. But they have to pull them out and measure first.
Pistons can be remade at Mahle Stuttgart (good quality, accepatable prices, long delivery) but may be there are standard ones available.
The chain has big play on the sprockets so the sprocket gears have to be replaced
I have a new head gasket, are there gasket sets for all the rest available or do I have to make or have them made ?
I will ask e.g. Aston Service Dorset, thank you for advice where/whom else to askPeter S305 June 2008 at 08:17 #47360
