Kiitos. Suomi ei ole helppoa!   ;)
Anyways, welcome!

I have always wounder if the 4.0 limit is in the heads. When we tried it out it was very inefficient, so it was tougher to get much power out of it. What limits have you found?

Terveisin,

Seat Pressure at 50,8kg

Stock spring specs (from 91 FSM) - stock springs are 60-65lbs on the seat@ 1.58", and 138-149lbs open at 1.22"

assembled height stock is 1.578-1.609"

Spring pressure is only 143lbs @ 1.22in avg. and that with roller lifters, that's very weak.

Comp Cams 988 springs, with Crane Cams 99947 retainers is a popular upgrade.  Seat pressure of around 110-115lbs and 275 or 280lbs open.

Hi Pete & welcome.

There was a nice 4.0L in Denmark.



Was built to a good standard with excellent machine work.




It made 660lbs @ 3800 RPM on 1.7 bar but they could only get 600bhp out of it.

Also it didn't last long as the crank bent & also there was head problems so they abandoned the engine as a bad idea!

The bottom end was top spec as well!



Knackered crank!




Sorry to say the 4.0L OHV is not the best of engines for big power.

I also use coated bearings.

It's a Teflon type coating like what pistons have.

Reduces friction & heat build up.

Was mega expensive but now I think all of the main brands give you the option.

Them Ravenz guys like the old V6 Fords.

They ran a 500bhp 2.9 twin turbo engine, then the 4.0L 600bhp one & currently a 750bhp plus 2.9 24V version.

The 4L gives a really heavy sound and it really feels like a big engine.
Of course you should continue!  ;)

Nice Pete  ;D


Just the type of thing we have all been talking about making!

I would pay you to make another for me if the 4.0L block was not so different to the 2.9's oh & the fact it must be custom made for your block to be right!

Of course you will carry on  :mellow:

Yeah thanks Dave!
 
4.0 block and oil pan bolts passenger side (UK) is about 1/2 "wider than the 2.9.
it need modified and measure CAD pictures.

But this girdle come very expensive for me. =/  Milling Work is 560£ + material 250-350£ and matching engine costs something your country. (honing etc.)

Yeah I guessed it would be around 1000 pounds.

Material seems a lot, it's only mild steel isn't it???

Looks it in the picture I think!

You have done it the same as I plan too & have suggested is best.

The local firm to me wants 150 pounds to burn a rough piece of steel the same as that.

Yeah it's cut on the machine, then cooled & then planed flat both sides.
