Triumph TR8 V8 Cylinder Block Components
Suitable for all applications.
Bare cylinder blocks are supplied with main bearing caps, cam bearings, core plugs and cylinder liners but less crankshaft, pistons etc.
Composite head gaskets are thicker than standard tin gaskets and will therefore lower the engine's compression ratio. Ideal for correcting compression ratio when heads/ block faces have been skimmed. (Not applicable 1995 on).
Approximate gasket thicknesses are as follows:
Standard (tin) gaskets 0.5mm
Composite gaskets 1.2mm
Typical effect on compression ratio:
Standard (tin) gaskets 3cc
Composite gaskets 10cc
