I would love to, just cant at the moment .. maybe later when i start making some actual money I will .. Just got the old rings off , gonna clean up the pistons , try to get as much carbon off as possible . thanks for support , its coming along well so far :thumbup:Pull the block and get it honed. Jagaloon.
and also, they say STD on the back side of them but they arent .. unless im a dumbass , but i tried the fitment on the piston and it seems to tight and to the point where oil wont even be able to build a film between the bearing and the rod.Yes you are dead in the water. I like the three piece oil ring I think it does a better job , so call them and work it out. Now for the barrings check the back side it should have STD or .010 if neither write down what ever is on the back and call them to make sure you have what you asked for.
What ever you do plastic-gage the rod's.
To keep the rust down CRC makes ENGINE-STORE it's a spray and it will protect your [email protected]#t until you get it together.
Im pretty sure mine looked like that, for some reason I think it is so they sorta pop into place. If you think about it the stock ones you took out could have been like that before they were installed years ago also, but they have been in place for so long they have lost the tiny bit of elasticity that you see in the new ones. Maybe im way off track here, but thats just how I see itand also, they say STD on the back side of them but they arent .. unless im a dumbass , but i tried the fitment on the piston and it seems to tight and to the point where oil wont even be able to build a film between the bearing and the rod.
thanks buddy, Easy motor to tear down .. if i ever decide to do that low compression pistons is what ill be looking at with new rods internals wise so im not stressing to hard about it for now. Dont wanna throw a turbo on this setup just yet, kinda disappointed i cant bore it out any due to my $$ issues and school.. We shall see how everything comes along, if i ever change my mind , like i said It can be torn down in no time so maybe bigger plans in the futurenice dude.. 2.0 ready for boost.. good work keep it up
