Progress. Pulling heads tomorrow. Fingers crossed I don't find slipped liner. So far so good.

Make sure you get those heads checked out for straightness and valve sealing in the combustion chamber.....

Wait, you should be able to see a slipped liner, its the cracked one that's hard to see.

A slipped liner can be seen in some cases and felt by running a point over cylinder edge. but crack are another story.

let's just say after 20+ yrs and thousands of heads and motors Iíve done. Iíve physically seen 2 liners slipped in the bore and they were just touching the crank .noted by a lower end tap like a bad lifter the other signs of slipped liners were detected from the bottom with traces of coolant between the bore and sleave ....in any case just trying to help and guide you in the right direction ....."Fix it right the first time"

Next Tip:..clean the rocker shafts/arms and check the rocker arm tip cups if they rotate or move replace them now or she'll tap

the underside of the rocker arm which is aluminum there is a steel cup steaked into the arm tip where the pushrod rides on it over time they get loose .. use a pick and see if you can rotate the steel cup if it moves you should replace the arm .. crappy desgin had a brand new rocker assembly start making noise after the first oil change ... stick with rotella and change every 3k

Pulled drivers side head. 3 of the rear head bolts were VERY loose, and I could see where the head gasket failed. Good news is I can't see any visual signs of slipped liner. At first glance I thought all the liners had slipped but then I realized the head gasket was still on the block Ha. All cylinders looked equally dirty, no dramatic variations.


I will work on other head tomorrow. I broke 2 sockets on the first head bolt late in the evening so I called it a night. Torque on the head bolts are all over the place. Glad I will be going with studs.

It's probably a LONG time since you had a Rover... You can eat off that garage floor.
