Last week we began rebuilding a TR4A engine for Paul Anderson. He is restoring the vehicle but decided to bring the engine to us. We will be fitting 89mm pistons and liners, a slightly hotter camshaft and doing a little work on the cylinder head. The increase in capacity should make the biggest difference with a flowed head and camshaft to give it that little bit extra. So far the block has been acid dipped and is awaiting the new liners. The crankshaft has been ground and is now getting balanced along with the flywheel, clutch and conrods.
We offer a full engine building service here at CCK. Whether it be a completely standard unit, a mildly tuned road engine or an all out race or rally motor. We can offer advice on modifications such as cylinder heads, carburettors, compression ratios, manifolds, headers and camshafts. We have an in house machine shop if your block needs decking or you need to skim your cylinder head. We can also wedge and blade your crankshaft. When your new engine has run in you can of course bring it back in for tuning on our rolling road. Our engines can be seen in action in many historic racing cars around the UK. Please call to discuss your requirements.
