Hi

Checked through my old catalogs and stock and came up with the following:

Std bore on this is 63mm.
Con rod big ends - std size 41.262mm on crank and 43.942 housing
Mains - std size 44.437mm on crank and 48.146mm housing

I have mains available in 40 and 60 thou, and big ends in 10 and 20 thou. Should also have gasket sets in stock.

Determining unknown torque settings

My dad's tip from many years ago when he was a motor mac (he is 80 on Friday, so that is many many years ago) .

Use a click type torque wrench. Turn the setting down low say 20 lb/ft. Even lower if it is a tiny nut/bolt or holding together alloy parts, or has a thick cork gasket.

Try to undo the nut/bolt. Should click before it moves. Adjust the click up by about 2 lb/ft. Repeat. After 30 lb/ft step by 5 lb/ft. Repeat until nut/bolt just starts to move - that's your torque setting for reassembly.

Of course this does not help if things are severely rusted, or it is already stripped, or has been assembled by fools whose idea of tight is either:
1. Finger tight plus a quarter turn.
or
2. Net voor hy strip.
