Does anyone know if the Mk2 2litre push rods are still available anywhere as i'm starting a rebuild and I have a bent one?

Also is it common for compression to be pushed out the front head studs?

if you have any compression at the studs then there's a gasket problem for sure

washers tend to deform and you loose torque and clamping force.  thats quite common

Bent pushrod !    DO YOU NOT HAVE A HAMMER ?

Laurence


I remember being wrong once before Laurence Cochrane Newtownards Northern Ireland. 1972 Gt6 2600EFI The Mutt. Some original parts fitted, Not many ! Early PI motor overbored to 2.6. Lightened & balanced, ported chambered, cam'd 6-3-1 manifold. Running on DTA engine management system incorperating the PI throttle bodies fitted with electronic injectors and throttle position sensor. 0-60 4.7s & 7000rpm. Seriously annoys owners of modern stuff ! (particularly coz its a heap) 2500 S box with competition 28% od. 3.63 diff with a quaife in it, innit ! Rotoflex based rear but with a swing spring fitted & sliding shafts.(swing spring rotoflex without rotoflex's). Koni's front Spax rear. Hydraulic handbrake. Citroen xantia discs 11,1/4 in dia under Morris Garages 15 in Maestro alloys.

No... the engine does a good job of bending them by itself....

(Hi Lawrence!)



If it was made by man, it can be dismantled and rebuilt by man. Usually just not as easily.
