range rover classic 3.9 v8 engine rebuild
Running beaut after new mild performance camshaft,rollmaster adjustable timing chain ,new pushrods,lifters,rocker arms,shafts, and a set of 2002 fully refurbished heads(12 thou shaved).k&n pod filter,8.5 msd leads,new oil,filters,and lots of hours. After cam shaft change,my engine developed top end knock,couldnt quite pinpoint it,thought it was tappets or dreaded piston slap,...turned out the rollmaster timing chain has a different shape that doesnt butt up to a lug on timing cover,so eventually was gouging out aluminium on cover causing cam float,hence the knock! Very pleased to find this after removing covers to replace added a thrust plate to hold the camshaft in place and all back together,all is smooth and well (today,haha) I'm guessing i've replaced some missing horses and likely added a few extras from the original 185hp when new.
