Hi all building a seriously quick 4:6 RV8 lump for my car. Thought I would put a few parts in the dish washer for a clean!!!!!! like front pulley and two heads! ALL WAS WELL UNTIL THE WASHER MADE SOME SERIOUS NOISES AND FOAM SPILLED OUT ALL OVER THE KITCHEN FLOOR!!! Next thing I know it has tripped out the supply in the flat!. Just cant win chaps all brownies gone and I have been saving for months! Eric

Erm... Eric,
Just because the normal caustic dishwasher stuff would attack the heads, doesn't mean you can use commercial parts cleaning fluid instead!{-}

Check that some stray Rover hardware hasn't got into the DW water pump and broken its casing.

At least you know your RCD works.....

You should NEVER, I repeat NEVER do this.

It is irresponsible!

Hard luck eric, Liz always said you didn't know how to wash up and now you've proved her right {-}
If you get time would you e-mail me the spec of your seriously quick 4.6 RV* as i'm thinking of building one myself over the winter and i need to start getting my head round it now, Cheers :tu

Know how you feel came back from holiday and the kids had used ordinary washing up liquid in ours.

A new dishwasher was required in the end(long story)

Just re-decorating 'cos of the foam stains on the kitchen walls(almost up to the ceiling).

Thanks for all your support guys x( I guess this makes this 2000 then, what a gobby b£sted (no comments please!)

Cant get the dish washer man in for about a week so there is no bonus points for guessing who's doing the washing up till then :-(

Don't think it was the extra washing up liquid. could have been a nut and bolt as Steve says in the pump!! Anyway it not looking to cheap from where I am standing at present! regards Eric.

Richard mate thats really on a need to know basis only. Well a lot quicker than my current 3:9 anyway! Had some pointers & advise from Russ, also some ideas of my own.

Not as quick as these forced induction boys, but I am hoping for good results, we will see!!! Could turn out to be a load of pants! As a taster how about 8 Amel bike carburetters?

I got a mail with the full spec of Eric's new engine Richard, but then i guess your missus hasn't ever shared an umberella with Eric's, it kinda brings you together if you know what i mean {-}

If your at home today i'll be doing the remedial work on my cob if you have time to pop round :tu
