Re: LA11 engine problems

Hi Richard, many thanks for the suggestion of Steel Seal, I did try it once in my Lanchester, but on stripping the engine last year prior to overhaul last year, I found most of it stuck in the bottom hose ! Probably due to it not having a pressurised system and of course, the Water Pump on these car...

Re: Engine woes. ! !

Hi Bob, thanks for the super pictures etc, I’m pretty sure the it is impossible to fit the Pistons this way on the “Eleven” engine, as the Conn Rod is not long enough to allow the Gudgeon Pin to be inserted fron the top. When I strip the engine for inspection, I’ll experiment just to make sure, but ...

Re: Engine woes. ! !

Hi, well in answer to your question, there may be a couple of points to ponder, firstly, perhaps the original Pistons may have had only Rings above the Gudgeon Pin so may have been easier to fit, and of course when these Engines are re- bored, the Taper “ Lead-in” at the bottom of the Cylinder Bore ...
