Reassembling the Block

Reassembling the Block is the real fun part of the whole project. Most of the cleaning will have alread been done by the machine shop.


  • Don't force anything! (Gasket destroyed by over-torque)
  • Using the right tools helps a lot! (Piston Ring Debacle)
  • Everything needs to be spotlessly clean.
  • Always make sure that the crankshaft is easily able to spin.
  • Be careful with oil seals.
  • Always check and recheck everything, because once it is all sealed up you will not be able to re-do it.
  • Follow the Manual!
