Ok, the ‘new’ block is away at the machinists and the existing engine is out and mostly disassembled. The current block is in better condition than the ‘new’ one so I think I’ll re-use that. But, onto the more fun stuff.
The forged parts have arrived!
So that’s a set of Eagle H-Beam Rods, CP Pistons 9:1 83mm (standard) bore and ACL bearings (standard).
The pistons come well packaged and complete with rings and fixings.
The pistons themselves are far too pretty to put in an engine!
The rods aren’t as nicely packaged.
However they come with ARP bolts and appropriate lube.
All in, the bottom end should be good for far more power than what would be driveable.
