TA ENGINE REBUILD
TA ENGINE REBUILDING.
Your engine is stripped, inspected and put through a deep chemical de-rust bath.
From here we can closely inspect all aspects of the engine unit and its ancillary parts.
The cylinder block is bored and the machining (white metaling) carried out.
The top face is skimmed to ensure flat.
The con-rods are crack tested, checked for straightness and straightened where necessary. The big end is re-metaled and honed to ensure true round and to make a perfect fit with the crankshaft. New high tensile small end bolts are fitted along with our improved big end bolt kit. Then all four con-rods are balanced, both overall weight and end to end. This is something most engine builders don't do on their rebuild as they look to cut costs, but we find this a must to give silky smooth running and idle.
New pistons with four rings and new pins
The crankshaft is crack tested, reground with the correct corner radius and end float machined.
The flywheel face is cleaned, a new ring gear fitted, a new fully refurbished clutch fitted and the whole crank, flywheel & clutch assembly balanced.
The standard engine is fitted with our own design camshaft. This gives smoother idle and great mid range performance.
Oil pump is fully rebuilt. Top face skimmed and by pass valve seat re cut.
Sump is cleaned along with the pick up and splash plate.
New timing chain
The cylinder head is subjected to our standard 'Lead-free' conversion. This includes new bronze guides with modified lip seals, new stelite valve seats. New inlet and exhaust valves
The inlet ports are cleaned / shaped to give improved gas flow creating smooth idle and greater top end performance.
New cam followers, new push rods, rebuilt rocker assembly and fully rebuilt and improved water pump.
The completed engine is beautifully detailed in the correct early MG red (unless you prefer a different colour). Dark sea grey, or BMC green.
It is then fitted in to our test bed facility where we can run the engine.
We test the engine through a hot cycle, cold starting and carry out pressure tests etc. This allows us the ability to ensure that your engine is running as we would expect, ready for you to reinstall it to your MG.
We can at this stage (at an extra cost), set the engine up on your distributor and even your carburettors if you wish, so that you have a turn key engine, ready for easy instalment.
When rebuilding your engine every care is taken to produce the best engine possible. We always use the best parts, gaskets, fixings etc.
We generally run at a 10 week turn around time for standard TA engine rebuilds, but its always worth calling us to get an accurate time, as we do get periodic times of the year when we may stretch to 12 weeks.
If you need an engine rebuild sooner, please feel free to call us and we will try our hardest to accommodate your schedule.
