The CAV fuel pump was fully rebuilt, so were the injectors which now have new tips, all works were done by local specialists and correctly.
The pump and injectors will be fitted today (26/05/2016) the engine will be nearly ready for its spray coat of Perkins hammer pale green paint soon.
An update, the last piston is now fitted and the big ends have all been taken to 42 pounds, now the sump goes on and when the block is back up the right way I can fit the new cylinder head.
This is going very well, there is just one more set of new piston rings to fit, then the brand new cylinder head can be fitted.
The price of the rebuilt engine, its also restored, will be just R35,000 which is U$2250 depending on the exchange rate. Residents of the RSA will also pay the local 14% Vat.
