Mazworx Headgasket

So after going through 3 headgaskets, and water in the oil being a major issue I decided to spring for the best of the best in headgaskets - the Mazworx item developed for the 90mm bore.

I'm not blaming any previous issues with the Cometics as I believe it was a block/head preperation issue, but understandably I don't want any perceived weak points. At 3 times the cost of the Cometic I'm hoping this is as good as people say it is.

I have just ordered some new Nissan Coil Packs and a new Knock sensor while I was at it just in case.

So now we have new:
  • Crank
  • Headgasket
  • Cams
  • Bearings
  • Gaskets
  • Coil Packs
  • Knock Sensor
This thing is all new so fingers crossed it all works.
Wing has arrived!

She's a big one...

Bad News

Crankshaft has been linished and it turns out that it's cracked... awesome. The cam bolts seem to be missing too...

I've ordered a used crank and bolts through Osaka Imports, who were excellent to deal with. Paul even delivered the goods to the engine builder within a few hours. Fantastic service. Now here's hooping this crank is not damaged...
