  4. Thanks for the very informative reply Mick, just for further information I am fitting the 87mm piston/liners set. So it looks like a strip down and restart all over again. Just one of the joys rebuilding a TR2, at least it helps to passes lock down time???? Bob

  15. Dave do not allow the intake pipes to hang down behind the valance, if you ever drive into water the pipes will pick it up resulting in an big bang and an expensive engine reair. The best thing is to remove them as stated above. Cheers Bob
