Re: Rover 12 engine removal

Nice and detailed advice, Tony. Just one remark: If work is only intended on the engine, there is no need to remove the gearbox. Just put a trolley jack under the sump, separate the engine from the gearbox and pull it out. No need to remove the ancillaries. See here: https://lulis.org/2017/07/29/%D7...

Re: Rover 12 engine removal

Yes. it is. The only tip that comes to my mind at the moment is be careful 0n the pulley. Pull the engine upward so that the front of it is higher (the engine is not leveled but inclines forward).

Re: Piston problem

The dots you see in the white metal are particles which were sink inside it - indicating bad filters, poor oil pump or dirty oil jackets. And there is no alternative to measurements when it comes to bearing-journal state. Plastigauge is a good candidate. There is an old saying about the road to Jeru...

Re: Piston problem

Hi Tony, The 10/12 P2 used white metal bearing to the end of the series. Usually the big end journals are in bad shape in used engines, and even more so after a bearing melt. Without grinding all the work might be in vain - the minimum is to examine the journal carefully and take micrometer measurem...

Re: Piston problem

Yes, melting of a single big end while the others stay in tact did happen to me. Usually it is accompanied with load knocks from the engine and significant drop in oil pressure. To repair you have to remove the crankshaft so that it can be grinned and that can be done only if the engine is removed f...

Re: Piston problem

From what I see one piston is .01 oversize while the other is 0.04. Looks like a major mistake in engine assembly. Such a mistake justify taking the engine out, taking it apart and measure and examine everything. If you like to see a series of posts (30+) describing restoration of such engine see he...
