Finally got the replacement cam to replace the one that fedex lost.
Cams now both in and just awaiting the shims now that I have measured what is needed and ordered them.
Should have the shims this week along with the engine crane to lift it back on.
Once the crane and shims are here it should go back together quickly although too late for Easdale now!
Hopefully should soon get the gubbins around the block all connected up and try it to see it it works and I get the extra 25hp
It'll eventually be finished.........

Shims arrived today, installed and clearances checked.
All systems go, just need the hoist to arrive and it can all go back together again and release the power, assuming it all works!

Block hoisted back on today and most of the ancillaries and hoses reconnected. Just really got all the wiring loom and odds and sods to rerun and connect.
If I can get a bit of dry weather it only needs a couple of hours now and I can flash her up. Very interested to see if this cunning plan actually works!

Finally got all the wiring and hoses put back on and refilled with oil etc ready to go, and it didn't when the key was turned.
Eventually found the new ecu was gubbed and wouldn't allow the starter to operate.
The motor runs fine using the original 90 ecu.
I had tried plugging in the new ecu when I got it but hadn't actually started the motor with it connected at the time. Even now the motor shows up and has no faults when connected, the b**ger just won't start when the key is turned.
The work hasn't been hard to do but parts have been a nightmare forone reason or another.
Away to knock my head against the wall a few times.............

Did you modify the engine holder while you had it in bits?

The steel blank in the unused O2 sensor hole rots the holder out.

No idea what unused sensor you mean, or what modification?

I think it's only on pre 2008 140s, but I could be wrong. There's a blanking plug somewhere in the exhaust manifold, they put a steel plug in an ally casting & it rots the casting, plenty on the web about it. I'll have a rummage round.

Suzuki DF115 ECU

It's a problem with early models, suzuki realised the problem and fixed it on later models. You can buy an Aluminium plug but taking the steel one out can destroy the corroded threads.

It seems like its not a case of IF, more like WHEN. For some reason its on low hour units, I know of an early DF 140 that has more than 3000hrs on it and its still going strong.

corroded plug.....
