    Re: Jigabu's Engine Rebuild/Restoration Thread...

    .05 what? 0.05mm? if it is, ur displacement is still only 2L ( 1959cc) if its 0.05in ur still considered 2.0L (2017cc)

    Equation for displacement: 1) Pi *D^2*Stroke also normal equation is 2) pi*R^2*stroke*4
    D = Bore (Diameter)
    R = Radius (2R = D)
    4 = #of Cylinders
    Stroke = 91.0mm (stock)
    Bore = 82.70mm (Stock)

    Re: Jigabu's Engine Rebuild/Restoration Thread...

    Make sure you get proper end gap & space the rings accordingly. Double check & plastiguage your rod & main bearings to make sure there in specs before you install everything. I allways have the crank turned & balanced & line bore the block if needed when rebuilding engines. Have your block Manufluxed for cracks too. If your using the same rods, have them reconditioned & fluxed. Just a few pointers. Your shit is looking tight bro, keep up the good work.

    Re: Jigabu's Engine Rebuild/Restoration Thread...

    I don't mean to be a dick bro... But I work at a machine shop... The block has been mag'd and decked... I'm gonna pesonally do the 5 angle valve job on the seats... After I finish the port n polish on the head... I was considering polishin the rods before I balanced them too... I already got a remanned crank cause my first one was to far gone... They only make a bearing thats +.020... So heavy line boring and crank work is not good... I know b series ls bearings fit n I haven't checked on how big they get But I dont wanna but big ass bearings in anywayz... I was considering polishing the counter weights on the crank... But I'm not gonna do that on this engine... I will on the turbo engine though...

    I know your not being a dick & I know you work at a machine shop. I work on cars. Anyway, what I was getting to, is that you have to keep everything in specs for bearings. Sounds like your re-manufactured crank is going to bring everything up to specs from what I'm reading.
