    Default xu engine build questions

    when removing the liners in an engine i plan to rebuild do they need to go back in the same order/position. what is the best way to mark them. i was worried if i use a stamp on the thin cast iron it might crack the liner?

    Can't help in regards to your question re: marking liners with a punch or stamp but here is a link to a well known business involved in Peugeot engines. Look under " Block " for info on liners, hope this helps.

    cant you just mark them with a marker pen??

    and yes keep the liners, pistons bearings and rods in the same position.
    The wrong oil is better than no oil at all.

    i have done this in the past and sometimes the mark dissapears due to handling or cleaning the parts?

    i use a paint pen initially.

    Then mark the liners with small file marks.

    You just need your own documented system. Clean one at a time etc.

    If the liners are being honed and new rings it doesn't matter.

    Go to Supercheap and for $2 each you can buy small open topped containers. Mark each 1-4 and place each piston/liner assembly in each. Along with any other cylinder specific items. Clean each container contents singularly and don't mix them. Works best for me. Orientation of rods, caps, etc can be achieved with a light centre punch on a non crucial surface showing alignment - ie marks made on exhaust side only.

    Fight for your opinions, but do not believe that they contain the whole truth, or the only truth.
