Does anyone have the workshop manual pages for this engine?
In particular I'm interested in knowing the dimensions of the main journals, crank pins, crankshaft bearings.
The reason I'm asking is that I have the 2.4 crank in my 2.0 block. The engine quickly lost almost all the oil pressure. We've just dismantled the engine to discover that the engine builder used the wrong bearings in my engine. The crank pin bearings are good but the main journals were the wrong size and clamped down onto the journal causing severe wear on the bearing and journal.
I was wondering if the main journals are the same size as the 2.0 crank.
I’m about to prepare the radiator shroud. There are some flappy tin work on it, and some rubber flaps to rivet on, I think. At least I have a bag of rubber pieces…. Does anyone have a picture of how it all goes together?

Hi Paul - I think the new one on the list for us is Beamish and I admit I didn't realise one was held there. I can vouch for Beamish as I've done a few August MG events there and gets a lot of interest from visitors to the museum. Having talked to Chris Ward this year at Raby, they're not sure they'll return as it's too far for them to travel from Herts so are exploring a possible location near Doncaster on recommendation from the Ferrari Owners Club apparently. Not sure you class any location south of the M62 as "North" tbh but it's all relative I suppose.
Arranged by one of the Alfa Romeo clubs, these Italian car days are very good.
May 26th Newby Hall, near Ripon
June 30th somewhere in Yorkshire ( tbc )
July 21st Raby Castle, Near Barnard Castle
August 4th Beamish near Durham
The Beamish show last year provided free access to the whole of Beamish, which is excellent value. Beamish is a living museum, with a town, coal mine, farms, school and church, set in 1913. Trams and buses run around all day. They have recently opened a new section based around the mid 1950s.
Barnard Castle is handy for Rosso's opticians. The ones he started visiting during lock down.
Still costs me around 230 quid return on the chunnel, but they've got really soggy and hard to light about actually travelling on the train you booked, rather than within a couple of hours as they used to operate. We were delayed last time after a huge motorway closure in Germany and got charged an extra forty quid or so...
(And they keep asking me 'we noticed that your registered address is in the UK but you're booking Calais-Folkestone as the first leg: are you sure? )
The brake assist unit and master are different to the RHD models, LHD are way easier to work on as both units are in the engine bay and the master is from memory the same size as the 16v models so the 22mm where as the Bosch RHD is 23.8, short and stubby.
