Anyone here rebuilt an engine

Or taken one out. I need to do something about my engine or replace it when I get back from hot springs.

Also unless you have a ton of piston compression loss, the best thing to have done is get the head redone. It makes most 180K motors feel good again. The last time you changed out your rear seal did you inspect the bearing surface? if those get bad then it is time for the full deal.

I've rebuilt mine. If you're gonna build one may as well be a stroker.

Re: Anyone here rebuilt an engine

I've done everything short of a complete rebuild. My 96 has a 99 engine in it right now. Threw in the towel on the original engine. After I replaced the the cracked head, I discovered the block was also cracked.

Built up a nice collection of tools, a engine hoist, engine stand and transmission jack working on these things. I have a good 96 engine that I plan to rebuild into a Stroker, but I'm not in a hurry because the 99 engine runs good. So far I have the 4.2 crank and rods and a 99 intake.
