    Make sure you use plenty of assembly lube and prime the oil pump
    Will do! I'm sure I will enjoy putting it back together. I'm weird like that.

    Engine Replacement

    Putting in some elbow grease!

    Before:



    After (Aluminum Wheel Cleaner and Wire Brush):


    Didn't get rid of the carbon but definitely got ride of the aluminum oxide. Looking much better!

    Still have a little more work to do to get it all.

    Itís been a while since Iíve done anything, but itís time to get this finished.

    Just ordered my rebuild kit and it should be here on the 12th. $479 for everything in the picture.



    I did take the crank in to have them polish it and that should be done on the 10th.

    After I get everything in it will be time to put this engine back together. I cannot wait to have my car back on the road!

    Got an email from the seller of the parts kit and they are short one piston right now. They asked if I wanted just the 5 or if I wanted six .5mm oversized. I said to go ahead and ship the kit one piston short and requested a discount. Iíd rather not have to take the block in and have it the bores oversized.

    The machine shop is going to take the new pistons and the old ones and balance them out to make a good set of pistons.

    Hopefully the kit is here next week. I was hoping I would have it by Friday but thatís just how it goes sometimes.
