Update

Just had a good weekend away at the track, result was a PB of 10.68 @ 127.

New PB 10.47@133 545ci 3900lb Aussie Falcon GT 12/06/16 - Page 2 10365723_10203227494039715_7080130810866102486_n_zps9fb657be

That's the good news after getting the car home and off the trailer checked fluids and found oil and water mixed so after engine out found this in no.8

And found the cause of a long term plug fouling problem in no.8 also

After an inspection of of the parts as it was pulled apart a quick wash with some solvent and now time to start planing to make it better/stronger/faster!

Yeah got that to, oil ring has been a problem since last rebuild, it was the hole in the bore that hastened the tear down.

4 1/2 years. Each year a couple of days drag racing and some weekend motorsport events. Just a bit pissed that something undetectable like this has occurred.

Yeah could have been worse, as it was I think the trans dying on the last run I did saved me from disaster. It's at 30 now. I'm working out the cost of resleeving all 8 V's new block. Don't want the thought of another bore having the same problem laying in my head.

It's a D1VE block. I'm wondering whether due to the long term oil ring problem if there was a detonation problem that could have caused it?

I guess chaulk it up to a learning experience. hopefully you wont endure that again.make it a point to read your plugs annually incorporate that in to a timing check and valve adjustment , and jetting....... Cool  im having a hard time thinking the oil ring did that to the block, I could be wrong..

I guess I'm throwing thoughts into the air as I'm not to happy something undetectable like this has happened.

I had a regular maintenance schedule of every couple of months doing tappets and plugs and before every race meet a full service and lifter inspection. I've known about the plug problem for a long time and tried many things to eliminate the cause and it was due to be pulled apart after this last meet but I didn't want this additional damage to have occured. Maybe good in a way as I would have been pissed if the bore problem happened after a freshen up.

Decided to go with a new block, Eliminator sportsman maybe. Eliminator guys wont answer my e-mails at the moment though.

Had between 600-650HP don't know about torque as it was never on an engine dyno, but many runs on a chassis dyno always tried to lift the car of the rollers in the mid range RPM's.

yea that would be the way to go with a block put it together and don't have to wonder or worry,i was hoping to be around the 700 hp mark myself Im thinking the car will be around 3400 lbs and that should get me well into the 10 s out of the box would make me happy. my over all goal is 9.90 street car,the trick is keeping it fun Cool

New Block has arrived!

An unused SVO A460 block that had been sitting in a shed for some time.

Off to the machine shop and refit old bottom end, then refreshed heads, only change to old set up would be to go with a custom cam over the old XR292R.

Block fully machined, new parts arrived, ASSEMBLY TIME  Very Happy

New PB 10.47@133 545ci 3900lb Aussie Falcon GT 12/06/16 - Page 2 P1230897_zps664a6572


This SVO A460 is a very early casting and had a couple of irregularities,
1. Found a sleeve in no.1 mains oil gallery(pic 1) which was blocking the feed to cam bearings. Removed it to correct blockage and found out it was there to fix a machining fault, the boring for the gallery broke through the water jacket (Pic 2).

New PB 10.47@133 545ci 3900lb Aussie Falcon GT 12/06/16 - Page 2 IMG_2929_zpsb76da8f7

2. Lifter bores needed a clean up and after light hone for recommended clearance the bores were still a little ruff and tapered out at the bottom, bushes were installed.
