    That indicative of the deck being machined/skimmed as they all lose the engine number when thats done, so i'd say, yes..

    probably..

    Looks ok from this angle, bores and liners look good, through my screen.. ;)

    Engine number is usually 60DXXXXX depending on the motor.

    Victor reinz gaskets i'd use..

    Oh and have plenty of cam lube on hand, smear it liberally on the cam and tappets..

    I like to also pour the new oil down the valley before installing the V gasket, just to make sure everything is very well oiled up. ;)

    New Chain and sprockets i trust you also have on hand?

    Sorry guys been busy on the car ,it’s all done we just took the dogs out in it glad to have it back .I didn’t change the cam there wasn’t a mark on the existing cam or the hydraulic tappets and Jackie was desperate for the car back as she uses it for the dogs (they are a pain to get in her car ) so I’ll do the tappets another time

    So long as it's good then it should be fine, so long as you put the tappets on their mated opposite. :confused::cool::D

    With two adjacent cylinders sharing the same air it never goes well. :D:D

    I have ordered an ARP head stud set plus a set of stainless studs and nuts for the exhaust manifolds perhaps I was doing this wrongly but I found fitting the drivers side exhaust manifold the worst part of the job .I reset the adaptive values yesterday and it appears to be doing a few miles more to the gallon .

    Thanks I feel a bit better now ,I took the wheel and arch liner out that made it possible but as you quite rightly say it’s a PITA. I am hoping to change the cam next month I’ll post some pictures I should have done it when I did the head gaskets but Jackie was desperate for the p38 back the dogs are so used to going out in it.
