Default Engine Finally Finished

Well I finally got my new alternator today. Now my upper engine rebuld is done. It runs alot better than it did before. Now that I have it back together I wish I would have went ahead and changes the piston rings. But hey thats another project for another day... LoL

Yea, but to change the piston rings it would have been a out of car project, nice thing about the upper end rebuild is no need to pull the engine out of the car.

Great work, Ryan! And don't sweat the rings. I doubt there would be much difference. Have you done a wet/dry compression check? It might ease your mind.

No I haven't done a compression check yet... I was thinking about completely rebuilding the engine. I want to get high performance crank, pistons, and cam... but that requires money i don't have right now so it will have to wait...
