Rolls-Royce 20hp engine assembly

By Chris McPheat, Oct 9 2019 05:17PM

The engine for the 20hp landaulette is going back together this week. Once all the cylinder head studs were installed and secured the next step was to get the crankshaft & flywheel assembly fitted. Other than a bit of moving it from stand to jacks and back to allow for it to go together it went well. When it was back on the engine stand I could fit the main bearing caps, the cam followers, repaired cylinder block and the original pistons & connecting rods. Today I got the head back on but found that it was missing a few correct parts to allow it to be torqued down so I will have to leave it for a few days until the required parts arrive.
