This head has just been finished and has been calculated at approximately 10-to1 compression ratio. It is similar to those we fit to our SAFARI FOUR® engines, which see 95-100 M.P.H. on the flat at sea level in an 88” Station Wagon. All valves, valve seat inserts and valve stem seals are new & fresh. The exhaust valves are auscenitic steel and are thus compatible with unleaded fuels available today. It also has been fitted with induction-hardened seats under the exhaust valves, so seat degradation will not be an issue. The exhaust valves also are fitted with Genuine Land-Rover valve rotators, as fitted to North-American Specification machines, which are now almost impossible to locate. Probably NO OTHER HEAD you purchase today will have these!!
1.All 4 corners were inspected, a hub seal has leaked 90wt onto the shoes and rear shoes are too thin for our comfort. a complete brake job needed with a thorough inspection of all the hardware.
2.All 4 corners stripped to the backing plate with all three flex lines inspected for integrity, all the hardware (springs, anchors) need to be replaced, all the wheel cylinders and a complete brake fluid flush will be done
3.Inspection finds that the hub assemblies will need to be replaced; the right front axle will need to be replaced due to rust at the splined hub end.
4.All the new components were prepped and painted.
