By December 2006, mechanical work on the engine finally begins. Here are the only pictures I had the opportunity to take during this work, engine heads have been removed and sent to a specialist.
As planned, there were some bad news: 2 camshafts, 6 valve tappets and 3 valve springs had to be replaced. One engine head has been replaced in the past. But the overall condition of the engine is good. It confirms the good results of the compression ratio measurement done before taking the engine out of the car.
Of course I would love to replace all pistons and everything around them, but it would cost a fortune and it’s not really necessary, my goal is not to have a new engine.
