bought a "forged" lump of JDz some 2-3 years hence, guess what, its gona cost me more to fix the shoddy workmanship that it is to build one from scratch. only good point is the heads are flowed and ok, but whoever did the valves and measured and fitted teh pistons needs a slap. Pistons are too small for hole and valves dont sit correctly and have coked up

 

thats the past time I buy second hand anything its just not worth the time and effort and ends up costing 5 times that of brand new.

teach me to buy of someone who done the work themselves. which is why he sald it because it had a problem. wich someone had given me the heads up, complete waste of money.

can't you go with oversized valves and get pistons to suit?

i was but this was "suposed" to be a fully forged lump with less than 100 miles. turns out it just has weisco pistons. not very forged

not much else worth forging anyway chris, unless you were aiming for 600+hp

 

never rated weisco, Not sure a cotter pin would be much good radron LOL but they may aswell supply cotter pins:rofl: its more to do with the shite design and failing circlip/s!!

I can quite safely say that 600 was going to be the lower target, so yep it needed to be forged.
