    Default Busy day with my new toy today

    Not had a toy to play with for a while so thought it was about time I had one

    Bought a MG TF from Ebay that needed the head gasket doing and a bit of tidying here and there.

    So today I spent a few hours taking the head off to see how bad it was blown as the oil and water had mixed.

    Picture of the car and a few from today taking the head off and how bad the oil and water had mixed.

    You wanna check the block as the bore's are wetliners and can drop.
    when the head is off put a straight edge across the cylinders and make sure they are all level before putting the gasket, head etc back and only finding that water and oil is mixing again. If you find one has dropped it will need re seating which can be very expensive or replacement block or engine which ever is cheaper.

    Thanks for the tip.

    Once the head was off that was the first thing I did so I knew if to go further with this engine or not.

    Done a few K series now an not seen any liners move yet.
