        wel the engine is ready to be lifted now, not bad it took me three hours to get every thing off and ready to lift, only thing to take off now is the rear engine mount bolt on the driver side, how the hell do i get to it?!

              aha good tip,

              once i get hte heads off is their enything i should do to them befor i put them back on? cus im quite confident spliting it and replacing the bearings n sduff, not shure bout heads,

              also, are their any upgrades i can do whilst im in their s in like upgrades from other versions, like would pistons and rods from an sti? im trying to keep costs right down like.

                right, iv orderd some acl bearings and a gasket set alredy, is 3 bond a type of sealant like?

                is a new crank esential? how much should i be looking at for one?

                at least im saving loads of monay doing this work myself ai.

                  whats the best way of leaning everything down, with the outside of the components i was going to scrub em with a brush cover with carb cleaner then jet wash it off, but what about the internals n sduff?


                  w a mate of mine asked f i had a centre or rear thrust crank, i was like ???eeeii u wat???? haha, any cluse?


                  • #10
                    o cwl, what is centre thrust enyway?

                    a so carb/brake cleaner will do inside and out? ideal, what would i use to oil everything up, engine oil?

                    thanks :-D

                        well, the engine is on a work bench in thousands of peases haha, this is why bottom end bearings should be changed imidatly when it starts knocking like i did

                        bottom bearings for pistons 1,3,4

                        and a close up of piston 4

                          Re: engine removal

                          right, nex issue, instaling the pistons,

                          just to check iv got this right:

                          -position required rod with small end at piston pin hole

                          -place piston ring compresor on piston

                          -with ring gaps at like 10 past 10 (clock)

                          -close compresor and place in cylinder bore mouth

                          -tap the piston down into cylinder

                          -keep going till every thing lines up

                          -piston pin in

                          -circlip in,

                          job done, is this correct?

                          thaaank u
