We begin the teardown process, look for any damaged parts and check for any cracks or needed repairs. Nothing bad found here, we can proceed. We start on the bore and hone and reconditioning the connecting rods.
Machine Services- Bore and Hone
After tear down and dismantle we hot tank the parts and give them a good scrub. After the bore and hone, we give it another run in the hot tank so it is clean enough for a coat of paint. Meanwhile, we have already begun on the cylinder heads with a Valve Job.
Basic Valve Job includes Grind valves, cut seats, resurface, clean, paint and assemble. New guides if it needs them.
Cylinder head Valve job is complete and they are ready to bolt on the block when it is time. Engine block gets a new coat of paint, then we drop in the crank, hang the new pistons, install the bearings and start short block assembly.
I missed a few photos along the way, so we already have the Long block assembled. Adding the final touches.
Bolted on the cylinder heads, installed timing chain, put the rockers on and finish assembly. This bad boy is ready to go!
