Yes Dewis, same oil pump that i used in first engine.
Why do you say it failed ? it seems to working well. (done few engine rotations with starter and without sparks to prime the pump : i saw the oil on chain normally come).
All is refit.
For memory : I let standard engine in place and put Harrop SC 2.9" pulley with a 5.200rpm rev limiter.
I did a power measurement and result is:
I can push rpm limiter to 5400 and more to try if i don't past 250bhp.
But really don't need more right now ! Soo amazing.
What a massive torque ! I understand now why past 2500rpm i think i'm in a catapult !!
Max inlet temp on my trip was 48° C. I though i would find more heat. In normaly condition inlet temp is 33°C for an external 16°C.
Will do more test and a fuel learning.
Some news about my project:
Last year, i tried a second rebuild and engine blocked again.
I've open it today and found same problem than first blocked engine on cylinder 1 :
All cylinders are keep in a good state.
I don't understand why crank shaft bearing n°1 are in this state. Too much torque on screws ? Wrong bearing ? Low oil pressure ?
Will take a look tomorrow if this is not a bent connecting rod issue.
I found that 2 conrods were not installed in same way, is this bad ?
If you read back my project: when engine were rebuilt, when i tighten conrods screw : i couldn't turn it free without a particular strong force on the crankshaft. When i loosed conrods screws : it turn correctly.
What do you think about wrong bearings conrods size ?
I've used ZZP ECOTEC 2.0L/2.4L ROD BEARINGS https://zzperformance.com/ecotec/engine/ecotec-2-0l-2-4l-rod-bearings.html
Or too much torque on screws ?
Or oil pump fault, how to check the oil pump ?
