PostSubject: Building an engine   Mon Feb 16, 2009 9:26 pm

I am going to tear down the first engine I got from the auto recyclers. It has 108k on it. I was thinking about dropping it off to R&L engines Here in Dover.
http://www.rlengines.com/ . It was very clean inside when I replaced all the gaskets. I may have them replace all the bearings, rering and hone, and rework the heads with stiffer beehive springs and 1.6 rockers.
Or the more expensive route. Dismantle the engine and have Golen engines do their stuff to the block, heads, crank, and piston and rods.

Depends on your goals. Smile

I'm happy with mine and it's a standard bore tree fiddy that was cleaned up, re-bearinged and re-ringed (only ONCE this time!) and got a nice little heads/cam package.

I spent ~$250 @ Golen for the machine work. Baked, tanked, re-honed, checked block & heads...

That is not bad at all Bill.

Yeah, that was a fun thread! Smile I really had a blast! And I have like 5K HARD miles on that motor and it still runs like a champ!!! I may just have built it right!!! Very Happy

An in case ya couldn't tell, NO! I don't mind at all! If anyone has questions, feel free to ask!

And check with Karl Ellwein. He's clearing out all his building supplies while he takes a year or so off to get married... I got all my rebuild parts from him. If it's just a refresh, you could do it for way less than a grand, even with a cam...

IMPALADAKID - where did you pick your motor up and for how much, I'm looking into a rebuild over the summer.

I picked both of them up at Bow Auto Salvage in Bow, NH. $300 ea. They had three, I got two. The first one let go, and they gave me the second one free. Very Happy
The first one and the cleanest of the three was out of a fleetwood with 108k on it, the second came out of a 87k rmw. I had picked the higher milage one over the lower one because it was cleaner and had a ac delco filter, so I had assumed it had been taken care of.
I have their number around some place.

Oh, no need for the number, I know where they are. I got a 350 out of a '99 Tahoe for my auto tech class in high school from them.

Keep us posted on the build!

Who did your head work? Or did you buy them ready to install?

I got them already done from a buddy of mine. IRC, they were about $3500 worth of heads... Wink
