  9. the problem was/still is a very small amount of oil weeping between the cyl head and block behind the exhaust manifold seems to be a common problem but very annoying as i thought the work done would have cured it problem may be the piston rings or block but not sure. i think i will live with it for now the side bars were fitted by previous owner dont know who by could find out if needed though. thanks paul
  10. heres a few pics of her. yea she does perr but unfortunatly still have the same problem as before which is a pain in the ass after all that work and money cant see why its still doing it. i believe it was used by the 22nd medical regiment thats about all i know as of yet i need to do some researce when i get a min cheers paul
  11. HELLO a mate of mine has a rb44 and is looking for some info on the rear brake shoe set up. on inspection of the shoes noticed the leading shoe was about 3mm thinner than the trailing shoe is there a difference in shoe thickness between the two if so which is the correct way for the thinner shoe ie leading or trailing. also while replacing the front shoes and cylinders had some trouble getting the shoes to self adjust as with the drums fitted they dont seem to adjust but with drum removed self adjust freely many thanks paul
  12. thanks for that, bit late now as i had it off last week which was a nightmare if only i knew. had it skimmed, valves reground and new valve guides and stem seals so hope it worth the trouble. thanks paul
  13. HELLO just about to remove the cyl head from my mj (330 turbo) due to suspected head gasket failure, i dont have a engine manual for it yet and wanted to know the following for the refit head bolts torque setting rocker bolts torque setting tappet clearance setting anything else that may be usfull to know thanks paul
  14. HI ALL noticed a oil leak on my bedford for a while now, so had a good look over it today and found the oil was leaking from the head gasket between the block and head above the injector pump in noticed it was 'bubbling' out slightly am hoping it the head gasket but worried if there is anything else that at fault or worth checking while i strip it down. am thinking of having the head skimmed and checked while off anyway. thanks paul
