While waiting on the rebuild kit, I finished removing old Gasket material from the block. Wiped down most surfaces. Kit arrived on a pallet. Gonna make my ”liner hold down” clamps then it’s go time.
heads got magnafluxed, no issues. They are pressure testing to be sure. Heads were checked for flatness and are a bit warped. Going to have them surfaced. This will push out rebuild by at least a week.
supercharger and turbo removed.
Tore the heads down to just the exhaust valves. Ready for magnaflux.
Ordered Rebuild kit...just south of $4K...ouch!
Should start rebuild on Saturday 3/14. I’ll supply food and adult beverages to all wrenchers who come over and help.
OMG, it’s so good to hear from you. Sorry to hear about your wife, I hope everything worked out well. Once the motor is rebuilt, I can check the tranny to see about lugging the engine Otherwise I’m focused on the rebuild. More updates are coming.
