Engine Assembly

Overall Rating :
Assembly of performance street engines - Priced From

Product Description
Engine assembly is something I have always done for myself and I am quite anal retentive about it. On a reco street engine the only original parts I use are the block, crank and rods. Everything including internal engine bolts are brand new. Which makes it an expensive build in parts, as well as extra machining, like line boring and rod resizing etc. Even then you can still have problems, with new parts, or the original parts failing, so as long as you understand that, and any problems arise from that, you will be paying for it, then we can work together. If that doesn't suit you then thats fine by me, I don't want to get involved. My main experience is with Ford and Chevy V8s and Ford inline 6 cylinder engines. I have done some work on Early Holden V8s and Holden [buick] V6 too.

Measuring ring gaps, degree the cam in, and checking piston top dead centre to the balancer timing marks are critical engine assembly things I do. It is common for timing marks to be out with mass produced, non OEM parts, and this can have a big impact when trying to tune and diagnose ignition timing or detonation issues down the track. If the timing marks are out you're flying blind, everything is a guess at best.

All machine work and balancing is farmed out to a very fussy, quality engine machine shop.
