Tech Torque Pre 1973 / Re: Engine Rebuild... Strap yourselves in !!!
« Last post by barnett468 on Today at 01:29:11 AM »

What's next Barn ?  :lol:

oh shaunp and some others definitely know more than I do so don't forget about them.  :thumb:

I would measure the crank bearing clearance next and check the sides of the thrust bearing for wear and post a photo of all your bearings. The thrust bearing is the one with the big flange on it.

Your bearings "should" look like new. Shiny spots are slight wear and are common to have.
If you feel grooves in them they are bad. If you see any color other than silver, they are bad.

The pistons must be measured for wear.

It is safest to clean the pistons with carburetor dip but see what shaun says. You can damage them by using wire brushes or scrapers, especially in the ring lands (grooves). In the US they sell dip at many auto parts stores in a 1 qt and 1/2 gallon cans.

check the back of the bearings and see if they are standard or .001

They have STD written on them which I assume is standard?

Is that endplay alright?

Right..

I've checked all rod bearing clearances and all are the same or within a bee's dick of one another...


Now i'm pretty sure i've checked it correctly, crank endplay is 0.18mm which i believe is 0.007"



All pistons are out and look fine, a few had a heap of shit built up and caked in the rings but ill remove all of them and clean everything up.



What's next Barn ?  :lol:

Use standard gap rings but you might want to use rings that have a napier ring.

Is there any advantage/disadvantage to using Total Seal gapless rings?


I see info against but also alot of people swear by them.

Use standard gap rings but you might want to use rings that have a napier ring.
