    I know that's the way the British were doing it.......It explains why my 56 Healey has a 4 cyl with 3.4375" bore and 4.375" stroke. Con rods are 8.183" long.

    No. Daimler is(was?) a British car manufacturer. Probably best known here in the states for their 60's offering of a rather odd looking roadster called the SP250. Had a little hemi-headed V-8 in it.

    they also could'nt control oil consumotion very well on big bores back then, which explains the four rings, with an oil ring below the pin. It's a DAIMLER BENZ?

    It's a Daimler something or other. LOL

    I'll have to peek at the spec book one more time.
