    Did Barry machine the rear flange on the crank (where the oil seal runs)?

    High mileage engines often leak oil here.

    I didn't ask specifically but I think he did as the block looked like it was machined ( or at least polished/cleaned ) at both ends.

    I won't do it with the current tyres and I wouldn't feel good taking such a long trip so soon after a rebuild.

    Next time though

    Never trust anybody to do anything right on your behalf until you have checked it yourself !!!

    I'm starting to think about the monitoring of the vitals on my engine.

    Where is a good place to get

    oil pressure feed?
    oil temp feed?
    water temp feed? ( depending on the answer of question below )

    Is the standard temp gauge measuring the water pre or post thermostat? I would think pre- thermostat because you can see the temp rise but this can also be due to heat transferred through the metal. I want to be sure as I want the temp reading before the thermostat as a stuck thermostat will show the heat rising on the standard gauge quicker than a post thermostat location.

    As you should be able to see, just below your thermostat housing there are 2 sensors. These should be; 1) gauge temp sensor; 2) ECU temp sensor.

    So yes, it should be pre thermostat.

    Hope this helps?

    Hey Pikanini,
    Looks as if you're doing well so far. Keep up the good work. By the way, if I understood correctly, the wiring ball s called a "CROWS NEST".
    Wish yo well

    The wiring doesn't scare me. While the engine was at the workshop I went through it and re-wrapped it so it's strong and good. I also took many pictures of where everything goes ( there are no duplicate plugs so I just have to match actually )

    Calling on the experts

    It's been a while since I disassembled and can't remember in what order I took it off. Can you advise on the order to assemble the front?

    I'm sure I can figure it out but I hate having put something on and then having to remove it again because something else has to go first. - already had to take the inlet manifold off because I forgot the breather screw thing on the tappet cover that has a hose going to the throttle body

    still need to do ( what I can remember )
    a/c compressor
    ps pump
    cambelt covers
    alternator
    coil brace thingy on the inlet manifold
    viscous fan
    radiator and cowling
