I got all genuine parts except for the rings. There was only enough rings in Australia to do one cylinder so I had to get Federal Mogul rings. The freight costs from the UK are ridiculous and helped make the decision for me.

Hopefully they are a good quality brand. They look alright. Apparently they are from America and my choice was either from there or a set of aftermarket ones from Taiwan. I think I chose right.

So yeah that's my news for today.

USA made is usually good quality always better than taiwan or china. I go out of my way to avoid parts made on the pacific rim like aus, usa, european

FM is a big company, the rings could have been made anywhere. Could be North America, but the have plants in Europe and Asia as well.

In the 50's they made more motor boat propellers than anybody in the states.

Hey Dave. You spent time in Aust? I'm surprised that the Holden Vs Ford rivalry is known outside of Australia.

I'm a Holden lover from way back. :-D

Well got the call to say my heat exchanger and 2 oil coolers have been fully rebuilt are ready to be picked up.

After I picked them up i swung past and dropped all of the new engine parts and the parts i cleaned off to the mechanic so he can begin putting her back together

Another step closer :-D

My wife and I spent 4 weeks in Australia in 2008. Melbourne, Sydney, and Brissy. Loved it, wished we could have stayed and can't wait to get back some day.

Hey, Hendo. Those engine parts look far too booful to bury in the bowels of an engine room....
On the car front, as non-native I have to say I have never been a Holden fan, but have a soft sot for Ford, but only because my first car was a 105E Anglia. Had an XD Fairmont Ghia in NZ for a time. Quite liked the shape, but quality wise....rubbish. Both Commodores and Falcons are now, finally world class cars, but I'm sick of this Ford Holden thing, and really glad Nissan and Mercedes are going to be in the V 8 supercar race category this year. I really missed the Godzilla.

Hendo,

Just love the cooler rebuild!
Sure wish I could get mechanical work like that done here.
Unfortunately, it would cost as much as I paid for the whole boat and I am not sure I would trust most of the flunkies around here to do it right.

They looks So good that now you will have to do the rest of the engine like this.

Hendo,interesting you had the h/exchanger and oil coolers rebuilt. It might depend how bad they are, I was advised to replace mine on FL120s, brought in new cu-ni ones ($500 and $150 respectively) from USA, cheaper than getting them made here. The heat exchanger was beyond repair,and I renewed the oil coolers as recommended at 2000hr.What did you spend on rebuilds?
