Our 1981 Triumph TR7 V8 is currently in the workshops having the engine rebuilt. Unfortunately, due to the wrong piston rings being fitt originally this has resulted in the piston rings breaking.

We are now in nearing completion on the full engine rebuild.

We have cut all valve seats and checked guides. Both heads have been refaced and the engine has been re-bored to take the new pistons. The crank shaft journals have been lapped, the conrods, big ends were capped and re-honed. A new timing chain conversion kit has also been fitted. Both block sides have been refaced. and we have fitted with new bearings. We have also fitted new oil pump gears.

The engine is now ready to be refitted.
