With the body away, its time to begin rebuilding!
- Crankcase stripped, cleaned and new core plugs installed. Painted with high temperature black from Eastwood.
- Cylinders deglazed, pistons checked and in good condition with proper clearance
- Crankshaft journals polished to a mirror finish. No wear groove on the rear seal
- New piston rings, main bearings and big end bearings from Ireland Engineering
With the crank installed and buttoned down, it turns easily and freely as smooth as glass. With the pistons in, the engine can still be turned over by hand. Everything moving nice and freely and smoothly.
