    Exclamation RXP 2006 TOTAL DAMAGE - Recovering step by step !

    Hi folks I need your help a lot.
    My engine got very heavy damage last summer.
    Reminder Link: http://www.greenhulk.net/forums/show...205&highlight=

    Engineís block was grinding with machine. But the problem is that we do not know how many millimeters are removed from the block? And now I do not know what kind a thick gasket to put? Because after grinding machine , the plunger in the upper position is going out over the block. Itís clear for me , that the gasket will be unusual and will be made to order.

    My questions are:
    - I must somehow determine how many millimeters are removed from the top and bottom of the block?
    - How and from where it can be measure the most accurate, of course with Digital Electronic Caliper from other healthy Engine block?
    - What should be the normal pressure in the cylinder (of healthy Engine block)?

    I have a couple more questions about it, but let start with this
    Before :



    After :

    By plunger do you mean the piston sticks out over the top of the block when at the top? If so IMO you are in for a lot more problems the a headgasket.... if i missunderstood i apologize!

    Thanks for answers!
    What is "IMO"?
    What problems do you mean? Describe me in detail, please !
    For now, the first problem that needs to fix is: To make a high enough headgasket !
    Because now makes hyper compression in the cylinder

    IMO= In My Opinion.

    After all the heat from welding did you have the block checked for flatness and crankshaft bearing journal run-out?
    IMO that block is not usable.

    I understand what you mean, but as I wrote originally: Engine's block was grinding with machine.

    Now the engine is assembled and working. Everything in it is rotated without a problems - smooth and seamless..
    But because of hyper-compression cylinder can not rotate a full turn!

    So the engine is all put back together, but you can't turn it over because of the compression correct? If so, take the plugs out and you should be able to turn it over.

    From your post, as I understand it, you made your own head gasket. Is this correct? If so, you need to buy the gasket from the online store or a dealer. I don't think a homemade cork head gasket is the way to go.

    Hope some of this helps.

    Yes, correct! At the risk of repeat:
    When the candles are rotated - engine turns without a problem! But when they put the engine gets hyper compression ...

    So look for height of the cylinder!

    But you're right to some extent ! Gasket is done on custom and is made of metal, not cork

    Cylinder to head spacers have been used successfully in many racing applications over the years.

    I don't think too many guys on this forum have 12" precision calipers needed to get you your measurement.

    But I do.

    I went out to the workshop this morning and measured the deck height from the parting line of the block to pan, and the parting line of the head to cylinder. I get 7.141 inches or 181.38 mm.

    What measurement are you getting?
