As some of you may know I've been trying to rebuild my 1.9 8v for some time in between a load of other things. Ive now completed the bottom end. And tonight went to putting the head together again having had the camshaft removed/inspected and it was my intention to check the valve clearances, i should have done this before i removed the camshaft. I know.
on putting the camshaft back in tonight I've cracked the no 2 bearing cap. I was being careful and doing it slowly bit by bit. But no2 did get a bit tight and i obviously went too far and broke the bloody thing. My question is can i get another bearing cap. And will it be ok. I know often these are matched to the head. Ive spent way too much money on this car now and to be honest I'm about to crack with it all. Does anyone have any quick/cheap answers as to what i could do.
I would really appreciate the help.
