I'm assuming you uploaded some pics recently? I wonder if that's what triggers the ransom? :think:
Can't be as I've uploaded pics and my old pics r still visible. It maybe if u read their new terms and conditions?
I can't bring myself to even sign in to any of my 4 Photobucket accounts, just incase it triggers it! I have thousands of pictures spread over all of them :scaredtoss:
I don't -think- that's it, as when I first saw the thread about PB I logged in and downloaded all mine. They are currently still working....kiss of death of course. :lol:

Re: Is this the end of the road for the BB4?

Post by vanzep » Sat Jul 08, 2017 6:43 pm

well i guess thats the end of this profile thread - thanks to photobucket :twisted:
like others have said it would be too much work to redo
So this will be my last post - kind of sad but probably a good time to do so as i have recently sold all the nice engine parts/upgrades that i had carefully put together to go on the BB4 so there is no need really to update this thread any more :(

Im sure the BB4 will continue for many years - it flew through the last MOT 8-)

The BB4 went past the 200,000 mile mark earlier this week.
Amazing as the engine hasnt ever been touched except for the usual service items like, belts,manual tensioner.& a few seals :)
Still as quick as it ever was ;)

:) yep both ludes are high mileage now as i use them both as daily drives - neither engine seems lacking in power or anything but the BB4 has had quite a thirst for oil but only smokes in vtec if not pushed up the rev range every week - so thats not really a problem :lol:

i have a spare engine on hand if ever needed - its off a 70,000km auto but been sitting for nearly 12 years - took it apart today and it looks promising -its BBBB block - piston wall are as smooth as silk and the engine turned over perfectly - main issue is gunk in the water jacket/channels - i have all the parts for a mild rebuild - water pump, gaskets, belts and new rocker cover and fixings so just got to work out how to clean it all up and get it back together without spending too much :?
Merlin took a vid of engine being turned over by hand so maybe he will post it up.... :twisted:
must say thanks to him for helping out today - was a really easy job tbh - no doubt putting it all back together will be more of a challenge. :)
