slipped liners came in at the 3.9 classic. weak fuel mapping according to eggspurts
I had one, liner dropped only a couple of thou. enough to create a gap under the fire ring for the compression to escape into the cooling system on the squeeze stroke and then coolant to be both pushed and sucked back on the suck stroke.
miss firey coolant spewing mess. shat the lot one day and went bang. that was the end of that v8
pressure washed piston top was a clue.
as bad as the 3.9/4.0 could be the 4.6 took this to a whole new level. look for top-hat liners fitted
1k L322 as a runner project and not a breaker?
No way hose, I reckon it would make a Disco3 running cost look cheap.
A mate of a mate has one, thinks nothing of throwing that ^^ purchase price at fixing issues and servicing. He has recently had issues with the front diff, again, which is almost regarded as a service consumable.
