165 Engine Block
All pictures are of the 165 engine, unless stated...
|Cylinders 1 - 3||Cylinders 3 and 4. Note the knock sensor on the side of cylinder 3||From this view you can see the mark on each piston denoting the correct fitment||Side view with sump removed|
|This view clearly shows the oil pump assembly, crank pulley and idler||The oil pump assembly, as fitted to a 205||Oil filter etc||Flywheel end|
|With the sump removed the strainer and oil pump pick can be inspected||Bottom end view||The mesh on the strainer stops larger foreign objects from entering the oil pump...||Big end and main bearings|
|Another view of the bearing caps||If you look closely you can see one of the oil squirters used to cool the underside of the pistons...||The 205 also utilises oil squirters to aid in cooling the pistons||The sump. Note the baffling. The 205 sump arrangement is vastly different|
|As you can see the 205 sump is a lot different. It comes in 2 parts, this is the main part...||...it accommodates the oil filter and pressure regulator. A design change is apparent here as the sump extends all the way over to and bolts to the gearbox casing, for increased rigidity||205 - under the sump is the baffling, which is bolted to the block||With the main section of the sump in place the function of the baffling is easier to see|
Thanks to Mark Chamberlain for the 165 block pictures!
