Some assembly required

Some assembly required

Wednesday, January 30, 2008


I tore the engine down, took it to the machine shop to have it hot tanked. Had the cylinders bored thirty thousandths larger than stock to clean up some pitting. They resized the rods installing ARP bolts, and pressed on the new forged TRW SpeedPro pistons on. When I got everything back I started assembly, though I don't have any pictures of putting the rotating assembly together... (Assembly lube and cameras don't mix!)

The camshaft is a CompCams 268H. The heads are the stock 76cc chambers, which have been gone through with new valve train. (Thanks Tom!) I have a set of ceramic coated Flowtech headers that are going on, as well as solid motor mounts to tighten up the front suspension.
