Progress report...

Nice day yesterday so popped the car out of the shed for the first time in over a month.

Evicted a family of mice from behind the battery and set the kids to work with paintwork renovator.

Step daughter had her first drive, only up and down the driveway. She will make a rally driver....5000 rpm, drop the clutch and left foot braking...

Re: Free 1994 Cinq, 900cc ..

Well that didn't quite go to plan....

Back at the wee car now.

To recap, no compression on number 3.

Head off, upturned, plugs in and no leaks from any of the valves.

Valves out and number 3 exhaust has no witness marks on either it or the head so it hasn't been sealing.

All valves cleaned and checked for bending. All ok.

Head in work today for thorough cleaning and inspection.

Lapping tool and paste bought, children will be doing that this weekend.

Looks like its a stuck tappet on number 3 exhaust. I'll get them all cleaned up next week to check.

It has had a washer or something in it. The marks aren't very deep and there is one tiny scratch in the bore but above the ring line.

Plenty compression in 4 so I am leaving it.

I am in Matterdale, why?

Re: Free 1994 Cinq, 900cc ..

Rocker gear all reassembled on the bench, but I found a full set of brand new hydraulic tappets for 20, so they are on their way. Might as well for that price.

Aquablasted the rocker cover and painted VHT red, it will soon be a Cinq Testarossa!!!

Complete set of new tappets obtained (very cheaply). Now fitted to the rockers and the rocker shaft refitted.

Now to prime and preload them.

Tonight, plumb the TB.

It lives!!!!

Running on 4 quite smoothly.

I'll pop the rocker cover off at the weekend and reset the tappets now they have some oil through them.

I wonder if I can get it through an MOT????
