The cylinders were in excellent condition and everything was within spec (a touch closer to tolerance than I'd like but it should be fine).
Im still planning on doing a hone and new factory size rings/bore. If the machine shop finds something I didn't find, Ill address it.
With the power steering done, the next project is the custom rear fuel tank! Stay tuned for that one.
If people are interested, I might start selling the plasma cut plates as a "weld it yourself" aux fuel tank kit!
Hey guys, just a question today.
Im building an aux fuel tank for the back of the 40. I wasnt planning on doing an in-tank fuel pump, and just using the factory 12HT pump.
My plan is to have an electric valve that switches between the front and rear tank.
Do you guys think I need an in-tank...
Some shots of the engine teardown. Everything looked really great. It was very reassuring to see the inside of the motor so clean. The plan is to just do a quick cylinder hone, boil the block, check the head and if needed give it a deck and valve job. Finally just install all new bearings...
