Re: portuguese 240 ka

yea, this hasn't anything to do with headgaskets just the work required to guarantee that they do last. the metal headgaskets require very good maching of both surfaces with the timing covers on. I filed my timing cover down after blowing two head gaskets and now I have a cometic. No issues yet at 1...

Re: portuguese 240 ka

I think if you are running low boost you will probably be fine. no turbo n/a you'd never blow it. I did about 1000km on 17psi. maybe 200km on the second but that was on the dyno pushing constantly. If your using a cometic you better make dam sure that timing cover is perfect with the block or slight...

Re: portuguese 240 ka

EXACTLY, same goes for the cylinder head when you get it resurfaced make sure the upper timing cover was on it because its also doweled.

Re: portuguese 240 ka

Check the deck/timing cover with a straight edge. because I overheated mine and thought that was the cause but just turned out to be a contributing factor. Because ive never blown a head gasket from a one time over heat.

Re: portuguese 240 ka

LoOKS like it from the pictures. but doesn't look like the timing cover was machined with it. I made that mistake and blew two head gaskets before figuring it out. I used a straight edge and feeler gauge. then I filed the timing cover down in the engine bay. lots of work.

Re: Torquefreaks ka-t build

THATS CRAZY the internals are the easiest part of the engine build. Id find a engine that had anything but bearing issues.

Re: Torquefreaks ka-t build

my motor was super low k and I had driven on it for quite some time before getting it bored and deck never had any issues with oiling or bearings so I didn't bother. Everything above the bearings was checked and within spec.
