    You are better off getting an old head bolt and cutting slots into it than using a tap. You run the risk if taking metal off the thread rather than cleaning the funk out Funk = gunk [emoji23][emoji23][emoji23]

    There should be a bigger gap at the crown than at the skirt. The crown cops the combustion blast and heat, there is more metal there. Therefore it expands the most. Don’t worry about it, just slap it together and get it in that Xf ute of yours.

    12 slot centre caps?

    Weird. Has someone cut a hole in them?

    XF 250 Crossy issues

    Take photos, lots of photos. Get a cardboard box, flatten it out and every bolt you take out push it into the cardboard, draw a circle around it and any others you take from the same place then write where they come from. No memory required!!

    It can be done in the car but it’s a pain. If you have air conditioning you will have to degas it as the camshaft comes out the front you’ll have to remove the condenser and radiator. Replace the lifters with the camshaft, this will be a lot easier to do with the head off. Honestly, I would find the job easier and probably faster removing the whole engine and doing it on a stand. You might as well replace all the bottom end gaskets and also give it a quick hone if the bores are ok. That along with new rings and bearings means you’ll end up with a nice fresh engine

    Have you measured it to make sure it’s round though? It may be out of round down the bore. No lip is just one of the signs

    If you want this 351 to make decent power I’d be checking the bored first. There is no point buying rings if it needs a rebore then new pistons and rings

    Auto Surplus are awesome, they only sell quality stuff. I buy all my gaskets through them.

    Please help car won't run

    You’ll need a new unit and it needs to be programmed into the car. Speak to either a car stereo mob or Ford

    Molasses 1 part to 9 parts water will do the same thing but takes about a week

    I remember it had a top loader with triple webers on the crossflow. He was telling us he would shift at 6,500rpm. This is in the very late 1990s.
