As a continuation to a continuation of http://www.bonnevilleclub.com/forum/...hlight=project
, I am rebuilding the motor.
The crank was roasted. There was burnt oil in the oil outlets of the crank and mains.
The bearings on cylinder 3 or 4 were as thin as a razor
For the rods, 3 were good, 3 were shot, so there are 6 on the way.
The FACTORY installed plugs were still in after 11 years and 132,725 miles
I am guessing that maintance was not a "big deal" with this poor motor
The gears in the oil pump looked like they had been sandblasted
I need new lifters. The old ones fell out when pulling the crank
I should replace the cam drive gear and chain. There was some good play in the chain.
The block is being bored out 30 over, line homed, hot tanked and magna-fluxed. I pick that up tomorrow and hopefully start rebuilding the lower end tomorrow afternoon
There was no physical damage to the block, thank God!, but it needed a good cleaning.
I know I need to post pics.
I cannot get to photobucket from work, but will tackle that tonight wehn I get home.
