Re: Daimler V8 manual flywheel on Ebay

I have asked the seller and he can have them made without any clutch drilling for the buyer to adapt to whatever clutch they'd like.

Re: Max overbore Daimler V8

After torquing the heads down a hear line crack in the block was discovered 90 degrees to the block face down the side so the block has gone back to the welder. I have had a torque plate cut from 30mm steel to simulate the cylinder head pressure on the block for when we do the welding and honing of ...

Re: V8 cylinder head bolt vs. stud torque

Thanks all, needed the numbers to torque down a head to check a repair. Used the stud and nut figure for bolts. I am considering upgrading to ARP studs and nuts when I do the final assambly.

Re: Max overbore Daimler V8

Block deck skimmed and bore taken out to 79.85mm before honing to 80mm. Cylinder head torqued down to make sure the welding does not crack when the heads are torqued down. Next step is a dry build to measure piston to deck height etc.
