FS International HS2.8L

$6200 (US Dollars.) very firm.
Shipping not included.

Located in Central New York, USA (already cleared US Customs). Originally purchased from M&D in the summer of 2005.

Engine blew head gasket, slightly warped cylinder head, damaged top of a couple pistons, damaged one glow plug, and clogged all injection nozzles. One of the cylinders may need to be re-honed due to polishing.

Price includes the following unistalled parts:

new head gasket
machined cylinder head (5/1000ths)
new pistons (2)
new ring sets (2)
new injector nozzles (4).

Does not include flywheel, flywheel housing, or starter motor.

This engine has only 5 miles on it. During the 5th mile, its experienced the runaway diesel and ran uncontrollably for about one minute (seemed like an eternity). The reason for the runaway diesel was I put 6 quarts of oil in the engine when there were already break-in oil in it.

Engine is currently oppened up for anyones inspection.

After reading this, I determined that you clearly need a hug.

Hug x2

Good luck Mike. Be happy to install it if someone makes the plung and wants it repaired/installed.
I can sort out the missing kit parts as well.

Not sure that cylinder head can be surfaced. What did the shop that surfaced it say about it? It is anneal hardened and does not like to be surfaced.

Jim,

Hugs appreciated, but are there any females around - they hug better.

The cylinder head has already been resurfaced and is ready. the shop had to take off 5/1000ths of an inch; 5/1000ths was also taken off the valve inserts as well. The injector nozzle projection is fine. Any interested parties can inspect.

Overall, this engine was very lucky. From the pictures I sent to M&D (also posted on this forum), they felt that the original pistons/cylinders are fine and will work; I insisted on replacing the pistons that were scarred from the high burn rate since it is.

Also, after the runaway diesel, there was plenty of oil in the anti-freeze, but as per oil analysis, there was no anti-freeze in the oil.

Follow-up Post:

4 new glow plugs also included (no big deal to be honest, but nonetheless included)

Jim, misread your cylinder head question.

M&D recommended I measure distortion on the cylinder head before ordering a new one. I measured 0.003" along the diagonal and reported this to them. M&D then recommended I take it to the machine shop, and if their measuremets confirmed mine, to definitely have it resurfaced. The machine shop found the same, so I had it resurfaced. Actual machining took of 0.005. The cylinder head surface looks, to me, absolutely stunning. Like a piece of polished jewelery. What effect this machining has on an anneal hardened surface is something I cannot comment about - but now I am very curious. I am sort of a metals guy - do allot of fatique analysis of welds on steel bridge girders.

Michael, may I ask why you are not keeping it?

I'd throw a hug in too, but I'm big and hairy and sweat easily.

When the runaway diesel happened, compression tests showed cylinder #3 had only 100psi (not good).

Since my rover is my only winter vehicle and I wanted to pull the blown engine to completely open it up, at that point, I decided to order another new engine, replace it, and figure it out from there. This happened in December 2005.

Jim - Thank you for the install support.
