Hi gang,

I'm preparing for the engine on the '64 coming out in the new year, to sort a leak to the chain housing on the crank case. It's in for major service at the same time to combine the labour.

While the engine's out, can anyone recommend some jobs that should be done with the resulting improved access?

Thanks
Chris

Oil breather gasket, Oil sender O ring, Intermediate shafe O ring, Crank nose seal, Timing chain dounut seals and gaskets. Highly likely the camshaft triangle gasket and associated O rings are shot but this requires retiming the cams. Check inlet stacks for cracks and replace stack bottom seals. New valve cover gaskets. Check clutch and flywheel condition, any oil in there means rear main seal or gearbox input seal. Thumb

Oh and renew the engine sound deadening pad.

Thanks for the list, that's great!

Forgot to mention the '64 had a re-build about 10K miles ago, but will certainly check the above Smile

Im also going to paint and refurb a few bits as I go.

I have just done this with my car.
Don't forget;
Power steering pump seals and belt
Exhaust studs and gaskets
New alloy washers on oil pipe fixings
May need to replace some engine tins.
HT lead clips
RMS and front worth changing whilst it's out.
Consider alternator and starter motor overhaul(Starters' a bitch to do when back in). Ask me how I know.
Replace clutch slave and flexi.
Overhaul clutch fork shaft.
Consider engine and gearbox mounts.
Driveshaft gaiters.
Check metal fuel pipes going to engine bay for corrosion.
Also metal brake pipes. (There is one that goes over the gearbox/ trans tunnel that cannot be replaced with gearbox in situ).

I replaced my clutch slave with an MPL unit and extended the bleed nipple down the side of the box for ease of access.

Take the deadening pad out and chuck it away. Loads more room to tinker then, and the engine sounds much better in the cabin.

Just a chance to give everywhere a really good clean.

Thought about it, then decided to take a Singer twist...
