Hillman Imp 998cc engine block re assembly

There were questions on just how to apply the required Loctite 648 retaining fluid to the larger steel liners in the all alloy block, applied the way I think it should be has in this case worked for me.

We found a specialist machine shop who was able to skim the bonded liners level once they were bonded in  with the Loctite 648 retaining fluid.

The car will now be taken by a specialist road trailer to the paint shop for some small works, after that onto the trim shop for a full re trim and new seats. The engine will be installed at a later time.

How easy was this?

Well we started about October last year!
