The 3 cylinder Engine Rebuild DVD is now available, but Vintage Tractor Engineer thought it would be good to upload a few snap-shots from the project. These ones are from the engine strip-down and assessment on disc 1. Photos from disc 2 includes work done at the engineers and the rebuild process.
We always knew from the initial assessment that we’d encounter a particularly worn engine with many problems to rectify. Basically, after the strip-down, it was clear that pretty much all the usual things were in need of refurbishment or replacement. This isn’t always the case, as there can be specific issues which need attention whilst the rest of the engine is OK – as long as you know what to look for and understand what components are like when they are in good serviceable condition.
The DVD intends to make it easy for even the most novice of mechanics, so we have tried to show each step of the process in precise detail. It’s a long process, so that’s how we ended up with the DVD as a 2 disc set!
