    Historic vehicles to gain exemption from Paris old car ban

    Just finding time to look at this thread, in a long while. Wow, that engine is in need of serious attention. Don't let it get you down, my Olds Rocket engine water jackets looked worse. So glad I took the engine ALL apart, before trying to drive it.

    Hello guys :)

    About questions....well, yes water must travel in the block, but all water holes are blocked. Paper Towels with Ratatouille name is a pure hazard! About new laws from restricted cars from 1997, that sucks!...Europe is burning:confused:. Too much laws, no more fun, we are definitly not "the land of freedom"!!!!

    Anyway, the most important is THE FREGATE:cool::cool:

    Jackspeed 63, same pic for me.....i have find the rest of the tube in the head.....well....:confused:

    Do those cylinder liners have gaskets on the bottom to adjust deck height ? Like renault 4 and 5 cylinder liners ?
    Because if yes, they are a great source of leaking and cylinder head leaks,
    It took me a bit of time to figure it out when i had a 4L.
    Courage Ratty.
