Don't use those 4 pound followers. Those are what fail. See my photo above. That was 3000 miles.

Well, what should I use then? They are advertising as "Original Equipment"?

I don't think using the old rollers won't hurt against these tappets which is soft soft metal and supposedly sacrificial right?

I wonder if there was enough lubrication with the failure you have seen.

I inquired Turner about failure of the follower.

Dear Michael

Thank you for your e mail.

The roller followers we supply are of the original equipment material from a UK supplier that we have used for many years and do not suffer the same problem as those supplied by others of different material /manufacture which do suffer the problem you make reference to.

Our roller followers are the same as we use in our own production and obviously we cannot afford to fit parts which are not fit for purpose.

I trust the above explains and if you still wish to cancel please advise.
Then I asked about failure rate.

No we have 100% reliability as they are the correct material specification
LOL. I will be reusing my old rollers as I feel that seems like logical solution.


John, did all 4 of them fail?

Boy, I ordered the top end gasket kit from Rovahfarm a couple of weeks ago. I am undoing the box now and just noticed he sent me a Britpart instead of the Allmakes which I ordered because that was what is advertised in his website. I was going to use the valve seals out of the kit....

Would you use Britpart valve seal on the head you are rebuilding?

VNT for Defender 200tdi from Allisport requires no gasket between the turbo and the downpipe. Can you believe that? I just don't feel good mating two metal parts without any gasket between them.

LT77 arrived today. DHL just held onto it for a week without calling me. I got in touch with the Ashcroft and they tracked it and found out it was just sitting there. WTH.

Ashcroft sent me a little surprise. I think that is transfer case shifter, that was also in the box. Can you tell what that is?? I have no idea.

I think waiting for parts is about 90% of the time I spent so far on this restoration.

Bought some tools and it is supposed to be 20 pieces.

I find Sears has gone down so much with their QC. I have had problems with 2 orders in past 8 orders or so.

I order daily through Amazon and had zero problems yet in the past year.

I really don't like the corrosion so close to the sealing surface.

How clean do you guys get your gasket surface? Absolutely down to the metal without any grease/oil?

Please double check this of course but I've read/seen wet sanding until you find the machine marks. The key obviously is not leaving material in the holes. Grease can do a good job at catching it, followed by a good cleaning right before reassembly. Don't want to
let your clean shiny metal sit unprotected while you age waiting for parts.

From what I can see, it certainly looks like LT linkage.

Shiny metal with no gasket material will suffice. Also make sure to chase/clean your head bolt holes to get all grease/water/oil that had collected during tear down out. Torqueing a bolt down on top of a water/oil filled hole would not end well.

Not even a permatex type gasket sealer? Interesting. No wonder we love leaks so much.

Thanks all for the input. Adam, How did you clean the bolt holes? Brake cleaner and test tube brush? Follow up with compressed air? Chase it with old bolt? I bought a new set of bolts for the rebuild.





What do yall think about this technique? yay or nay?


Also should I be concerned with the corrosion(it is a depression that I cannot squeeze the thinnest feeler gauge) right near the fire-ring mating surface?


Chris(Rocky), your jokes are difficult to get sometimes.

I usually just spray cleaner in and then blow out.

If you want to be keen or have some bad threads, get a thread cleaning kit. Craftsman.com

I am a very disciplined spender but when it comes down to books/manuals and tools, I am not. Maybe I should pick it up and run it to "make sure".

Sears is sending me missing wrenches and gave me a full refund. LOL. After talking to a few non native speaking representatives playing dumb and trying to give me a run around, I finally spoke to someone who seemed to speak without the foreign accent.

He said that they are sorry for the problem I have seen and that problem should have been resolved like this. I didn't know what to say so I said thanks... Let's see if the actual missing wrenches show up. Then I would be really happy.

LRDirect just dropped a box off at home. Hopefully all the parts arrived so I can drop off my injectors and the head for the rebuild.

Decided to pick up a rebuilt head from UK. It is on its way. I will keep mine as a spare.


Bought new injector nozzles to rebuild mine.


I am thinking about skimming the top deck of the block...... I really don't like having small depression caused by corrosion right outside of the fire-ring on the cyl4. I had 3 holed gasket so I ordered zero hole gasket which gives me about 0.1 mm to skim either the head or the block.


Having said that, if you are doing the total engine rebuild. What would you change while at it?

Wow, and let the rumpus begin!

Looking back this was a pretty exciting part of my swap. Just take your time, read the manual and enjoy it.

My crank looked fine so just did bearings, gaskets/seals and washers.
