Ford Sierra RS500 - first run on boost in ten years On the Dyno at Motorsport Developments
Ford Sierra RS500 Cosworth - In for some restoration work over the last
month and now having its first ever on Boost run in ten years. Once the slight miss
was ironed out with a new coil she was good to go. Love these cars when
standard. Awesome! This run was done on our 4wd Dyno Dynamics Dynotech Rolling Road Chassis Dyno at Motorsport
Developments in Blackpool, Lancashire. Housed in its own virtually
soundproof custom Dyno
cell with enough cooling airflow to turn the entire cell over with fresh
air every 4 seconds as well as dedicated engine cooling, Exhausts extraction and cell extraction systems,
there is no better Dyno for your car in the UK.
Cylinder Head 105 - Valve Job Basics
Valves not sealing? Valves not bent? This is how you fix that problem.
In this video I outline the basic valve job procedure. Cleaning the
valves, cleaning the seats, cleaning the combustion chamber and lapping the
valves in to make a better seal.
Here I cover the process start-to-finish. It's the same exact process for
pretty much all non-rotary combustion engines. It takes patience and
perseverance to do this job, but anyone can do it. Reference your service
manual for measurements and service limits. Everything else that's not in
your service manual is in this video.
I apologize for not having broken busted crap to work with in this video.
It's more beneficial to all of you when bad fortune falls on me because it
gets well documented, and many people watching these videos are looking for
answers. If you have bent valves, you will discover it quickly once you
chuck one up in the drill. You'll see the face of the valve wobble around
while it spins. You'll see evidence of this damage on the valve seat. If
it's bad, you may see damage on the valve guides in the form of cracks or
missing pieces where the valve guides protrude through the head ports.
Give all that stuff a good visual inspection. ...and if you doubt yourself,
never hesitate to get a second opinion or consult a machine shop. They
will have access to expensive tools that you wont find in your average

" We went to quite a bit of trouble to get this engine out of our Lotus and
that's because we've got several jobs to do and it's a lot easier when it's
on the bench. Now the most obvious, was this manifold here, because of the
crack it sounds like a tank, so we're gonna change that, but also this cam
belt here. Because the history of the car, we're not really sure of when
the cam belt was last changed, and because it could do an awful lot of
damage if it was to break, we're gonna change that as a matter of course."
" How much damage? Well, if the belt snaps and the valves smash into the
pistons, you're looking at thousands of pounds to fix it."
" First, I align the distributor, crank and drive shaft to top dead center
by lining up the helpful markings on the pulleys."
" Undo the tensioner and the old belt slides off easily, to be replaced by
a brand spanking new one for only 33 pounds. Mike will be happy."
" The belt's back on, so what I'm doing now is just rotating the engine by
hand ah, a complete. Revolution."
" Okay,um, I'm just gonna trying to line up against the top dead center,
just to see, make sure all our marks still line up. Which they do, which
means, I've very successfully replaced our cam belt."
" Now it's time to tackle the Exhaust."
" Gotta take this manifold off, but the problem is, you can see, these
rusty nuts on the rusty studs holding it onto the engine. So, I'm gonna get
some heat on these guys, see if I can expand the nut. And wind it off ever
so gently. But wish me luck, it's gonna be ever so tricky. This is such a
fiddly job it's kind of ridiculous actually, I think if it had been on the
car, it would have taken probably half a day to do, but at least this way
it's only taken maybe half an hour or so. The good new is, the manifold is
now off. The very heavy bit of scrap metal, and I'll now be replacing that
with a nice new Exhaust system."
" The surface needs to be carefully cleaned or the new manifold gasket
won't seal properly. It really does pay to be thorough. I've now prepared
the head ready for our new manifold but I'm not gonna be replacing it with
another cast iron unit, because although these are quite good for a cheap
in fact, for mass production, they're not so good for performance and at
the end of the day, we've got a performance vehicle. So what I'm going to
be using, is an after-market, stainless steel tubular manifold, that's made
up of lots of individual pipes that have got a nice uniform diameter, so
the gas flows out much much better, which means ultimately we get better
performance and for me, it's also easier to fit."
" I'm not gonna fully tighten up these nuts yet. First, I'm gonna offer up
the stainless steel collector and make sure it all fits together. The
collector will be properly attached later when the engine is back in the
car. And since the engine is out, I may as well give it a quick service. So
I'm changing the spark plugs, replacing the oil filter and sticking in a
new air filter."
