valves and seats lapped together minus the dimples and pitting ,the last cut of the exhurst valves
the deeper head in the rear of shot is the d270s head and rocker box
the head looks like its been eating somthing at somtime that i think it shouldnt of Cool Cool
must of been running since the head damage as the piston and liner are mark score free Very Happy Very Happy

inlet valve after the first lapping session just a little more will do

pitted and leaky valve seats

baked on carbon and rust mix before the cleaning started

almost as new valve a set ,just for the compression factor and long-jeperdy

Nice one Kev you soon got stuck into that and it's all sounding good up to now.

Keep up the good work and keep us updated on how your getting on, I think this could be the first diesel overhaul with pics and info to be posted.

well got the piston in its bore and has great compression and very little air leakage from valves and rings Very Happy Very Happy
washed to top end out as above so removed the sump for a good washing out below the crankshaft block and sump oil pump ect ect
and me and pete had both pushed and pulled the piston and was very little to none movement in the TDC or BDC usual spots and no suspisous clunkes ect
but when i got the sump off ,one of the big end cap bolts was tabed but very loose so removed from crankshaft to find the is 2 x guide dowls hollowed for the cap bolt to go through ,it looks like who ever refitted the piston didnt line the cap up square and push it on ,so the dowl had held it open when tightened up. Shocked Shocked then when running the cap jumped into place and allowed for the shells to "yet again be stripped of all white metals
heres the pics


see the lump of gunge on the pick up gauze filter top

the sump when removed had bolts, washers,nuts,plastic,paper,flackes of paint, circlip, jubilee clip and 2 of the originally missing collets Smile

so not as many parts missing now JUBILEE CLIPS AND RING bits top right ish

heres the bits

the sump spot the parts and junk Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes collets and plastic and screws ect in this shot can you spot them all Very Happy Very Happy

the crankshaft looks to be ok but will have to vernier it up tomorrow

air filter all cleaned and ready for the filter to go back in and be screwed back together

the sump just needs a few more washes and will be clean again ,white and etching primer must be an atempt to keep the diesel fuel cooler for a little longer scratch scratch

That's a bummer Kev! Shocked Dave (not the one in Buxton but the guy I had it off) hadn't touched the bottom end as he just replaced, and broke, the rings so I assumed all was well down there. It certainly rotated smoothly. Regarding the big end shell's, are they marked VP instead of VR, if so that stands for Vandervell Products who used to be based in Maidenhead, Berkshire, and produced the VANWALL grand prix cars from the 1950's. They were bearing manufacturer's but I dont know if they are still in business? Somebody like Thorntons of Shrewsbury may have something in stock, they keep a lot of obsolete bearings and rings etc. http://www.fwthornton.co.uk/

Kev sorry to hear of another set back but at least when you rebuild it you know it's going to be spot on and run for many years to come.

Glad to hear that your on the way to getting it sorted Kev and fingers crossed you can get the spare parts you need. I just hope spending this money near Christmas doesn't mean your good lady wife is not going to get a nice pressie this year. You know you have to keep her sweet so you can continue what your doing. Very Happy

So I take it "Making one good engine from 2 not-so-good engines" is out the window now then? (I'm pretty sure that was your plan at the beginning).

It's always the same though, if they only need a few parts between them then why not make 2 runners, & they're not the same model anyway, it's just I've got 2 threads to follow now & I keep getting confused between the numbers, wish they'd named them instead! Rolling Eyes

They had plenty of names, especially at rallies! Only a true masochist, or someone with severe hearing problems, would want TWO runners! Smile The problem that Kev now has is that both have knackered bigend bearings and replacements aint easy to find. Villiers/JAP diesels were never thick on the ground even when new.

Are they white-metal? (sorry, not been following the thread). If they're white metal he could get the shells re-coated. Probably a bit prohibitively expensive though.

there used to be a place down here somewhere (Brighton I think), can have an ask around if you like, my dad's mates are bound to know of somewhere, might be worth getting a few different prices in.

well matt
i have a number ive been given for a company that used to do shell remetaling, but im hoping not to go down this path,big money was what i was also thinking
but i called a man that gave me his number for if i needed any bits for villiers jap bsa but in my book of many names he only put a name and a mobile with the word villiers ,but this was at 1000 2 yrs back and there was many people giving me numbers and names with the engine they displayed so i could remember them easy lol
anyway i called meetins and said have you tryed marc and gave me a mobile and a home ,but both were numbers not recognised great start me thought then it dornd on me to go through my bibble Shocked the name matched mr villiers Rolling Eyes but with a differnt contact number
so called it and left a voice mail 5hrs later he calls me ,i tell him my situation and he says i have many many jap bsa villiers parts, and even for the diesels
D270s but not for D415 but many parts are the same i.e shells he said hes not shore if he has them or not without the part no so ive left it with him
but he says there the same as in a armstrong siddley "my jap 55 is stickered up as a armstrong siddley" Very Happy what were armstrong siddleys engines like ???
and what sizes , aparntly they have none white metals shells in the right models somthing red and brass bronze shells one of each
any ideas lads
also he said he has a good d270 in need of a rocker box and cover other than that it is all good order ,so im emailing a list of stuff needed for the two of mine and i have a price and first refusal on the engine so will be scratch scratch study "do i dont i affraid do i dont affraid scratch
scratch
been busy again today washingand scrapping gaskets off and making new gaskets ready for the rebuild air filter spotless in and out with a new gasket also so thats just the rocker box cover gasket to make and an oring for the coldstart and screw cap for oil top ,
i have pics on my early chrismas present from wife but cant figure out how to upload at this time will post pics as soon as

Kev all I can say is careful buying another engine as you could be stuck again, or go collect it but I'd pull the bottom end down and check the bearings before any money changing takes place. He could be 100% honest but I've had people say that something small is missing so it can't be started then when you get it home there's alsorts wrong with it.
I can't think of anybody that's had bearings made or re-coated but it does happen but no idea of the cost but don't think it will be cheap. It may be a case of deciding if the engines are worth continuing with or sell them Crying or Very sad or break Crying or Very sad Crying or Very sad and sell on the spares as they must be in demand. Maybe give yourself 3 months and see what can be done, if you just keep hitting brick walls then time to move them on.

It's a long shot, but I will see if my Lawnmower bloke knows anything. He's got bits for allsorts in his shop, but only he knows what's there & where it is.
He advertises a lot of Villiers bits on eBay, can't remember his username now, but I have a number for him somewhere. You never know.

Kev, did you say the big end shells are the same on both engines?

EDIT:
Kev, you have PM. Not much help though.

heres the pics from thursday
sorry for delay
hope this works now

been busy making new gaskets , this one is the air filter complety clean and the gasket greased for easy splitting for oil bath washing after many hrs work ,old gasket was rockhard ond broke into 2 Embarassed

the new sump gasket done, and left the paper in sump to stop dirt getting in before reasemling

the old gasket was well and truely nackered while splitting the lumps Smile

the original low pressure one goes in here, and runs from the cam at the bottom of hole now this is confusing to me as not in manuals i have a external lift pump and its fitted into the high pressure fuel block of pump ??????

the crank is looking healthy even in good light

managed to get the block into my MASSIVE SHED Very Happy Very Happy

Looks like it's going OK Kev.

Sorry to hear about your car, don't you do your own car mechanics? It's not that difficult, the usual trouble is finding the time & somewhere to do it (I don't care where I do it, I could live on the poshest road in London, I would still take my car apart outside my house if I wanted to Laughing )

Might be an idea to join the pug forum and see how difficult the jobs are to do yourself and maybe if you can do 1 it will save you a few ££££'s.

As ffor your engine parts you'll just have to wait till after xmas and sort them then when you have a bit of spare cash again. I know it will be frustrating having to wait but have a good xmas and sort the rest out later.
