A rebuilt E series 383 came off the test rig today after a full rebuild, the engine had seized and was delivered here as a pile of parts having been stripped elsewhere. It needed a +60 rebore as there was so much damage to the bores and 10 thou off the crank and the heads fitting with hardened valve seats.
The rebuild was finished off with an Edelbrock intake manifold and was converted to electronic ignition. Once fired up and the cam bedded in for 20 minutes it had some final detailing before being removed and is now ready for the customer to collect.
Also in the picture is the 440 rebuilt engine and gearbox being stored on the test rig until it is ready to refit in the Brown J series Interceptor we are carrying out a full restoration on and a six pack engine from the SP we are restoring which is now on the engine build stand ready to be cleaned before stripping for a full rebuild.
