Astro_Al Posted November 16, 2005 Share Posted November 16, 2005 So, having been sold a complete dud by a forum member (only kidding fridge! : ) ), I'm thinking of rebuilding my new (to me) V8. Since I'll be losing my engine complete-rebuild virginity, I thought I'd ask whether I'm being an idiot and I should just take it someone for a bottom-end refresher? I want the rebuild to start off with a decent engine. The plan would be to strip it, get the block cleaned, checked and machined if necessary, then rebuild it myself. Any bits I should NOT attempt myself? Tricky bits? seful info / tools? Decent reference materials? Is this a good idea? Parts recommendations - I'll be replacing anything that needs it and maybe bunging a few upgrades in. Where in the South should I get it machined if I need to? It's a 3.9 at the mo BTW... this is a black art to me, so fill me in! Cheers, Al. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
