    Regardless of what LR say, the engine can and did come out fine with the body on!
    Make the timing easier to do on the stand I guess...After I see what got destroyed

    Re: Timing chains etc...

    Stripped the engine and dropped the block off at the machine shop after me measuring most of it.
    I'm hitting a brick wall as to the specs though.
    Zero information about the crank end float, journal diameter, crank specs, and so on. Basically everything that is normally listed in Alldata for any other motor!
    Does anyone have the full specs for the bottom end???

    Thanks!

    Re: Timing chains etc...

    I had to leave out, pesky work...
    The owner is finding very low mileage Jag aj133's for a few grand less than either a rebuild, or a LR variant.
    So it looks like that is the route I'll be taking with this. I already ordered all the timing components including the new phasers, but he wants to leave it as is financially. I can buy the stuff from him, for the wife's '11 SC so he'll be saving some coin. However I try to convince him otherwise, he's after leaving it alone for now. Seems a LOT easier to do on the engine stand, but money is money.
    Seeing as I have only been into one the one time during strip down, can someone remind me if the fuel pump camshaft is disturbed when removing the oil pan? I'll need to swap oil pans and pickup tubes out.
    If not, then it seems a very easy swap, seeing as I have all the LR stuff laid out already.

    Cheers

    Or, fix the busted LR engine with the new parts and shove it into a P38. A Super P38 would be pretty cool! Especially parked next to the LSx P38.

    They make it cost prohibitive to be honest....
