Just got my 2320 T4 from Charles...

I bought a 2320 off of Charles from LN Engineering. It finally arrived the other day.

It is a 71 x 102 Nickies equipted beast with 2.0 Heads and only 3000 miles on it. This engine was balanced by Jake and built by Shad. Everything has been cryo'ed too.

I have to tear it down and replace the cam & lifters because he had it set up with a Hydaulic Cam & Lifters. I will be using Ceramic Lifters and one of Jakes split duration cams.

I cant wait to get this thing torn down and put back together for my Fasty.
Im sure Ill have some questions for you guys along the way....

It also has a set of Pauter Rockers which I may be selling soon

Sounds like it will make a nice mill. Get it freshened up and stuff it in.

just pulled the right head off and found exactly what I was hoping i wouldnt find.

the valve failure that Charles had (caused by the Pauter Rockers) damaged one of the JE pistons, it put a bunch of holes in the top and also wedge the top of the broken valve halfway down into the top of the piston.

I knew going into this that I was going to half to replace the cam, lifters and get some valve work done, didnt realize I would have to get a new piston and also have the head cleaned up too from the shrapnal damage.

Joe, hopefully the crank and rods are ok. Sounds like when you get her back together with the new parts it will be quite the powerplant.

I hope that works out for you Joe!

Frankly I am surprised something Shad built would have issues like that as he is very anal about quality building of things. I guess a bad part can bite anybody.

If you need any stock T4 parts let me know as I need to go to the bone yard while I am in Atlanta this weekend. Granted for something like this I doubt you need anything as it is all custom.

Good Luck!

I think the failure was caused by the Pauter Rockers, not a faulty part.
Jake says the have to much lift for this engine and do not get oiled properly.
They need a custom oiling system for the valve covers.
I will be replacing the Pauters with stock 2.0 rockers (probably have them lightened)
