Rolls-Royce 20/25 Tourer engine work

By Chris McPheat, Jun 12 2019 06:49PM

I've been spending some time with the Rolls-Royce 20/25 tourer that was dropped off a couple of weeks ago. I had to make some space first but with this done I could jack it up and remove the under-trays to gain access to the sump. The bonnet, radiator, fan & timing cover have also been removed. Once the sump was off the crankcase the pistons & rods were pulled and the photo shows the state of number 6, it's picked up, the bore is scored and the rings are stuck in the grooves. The white metal is not so hot on this rod either, probably becuase of the exrtra work it was doing with the picked up piston. I have a feeling the crankcase is going to have to come out of the car.
