    Engine rebuild project

    Got bored on monday so I decided to take my old engine apart, The bores are showing signs of wear and so are the shell brgs.

    I`ve spent the morning steam cleaning all the parts off, then this afternoon phoning around for prices.
    I can get a re-bore for 60-80 plus vat but the cost goes through the roof for 0.40mm oversize pistons, 591.10 inc vat plus del from FRF volvo.

    Does anyone no of a good company that sells good quaility pistons ???

    Before cleaning.





    After cleaning.

    That's the sort of price your looking at im afraid, 81.5mm forged start around that price and go upward's.

    600 plus import tax......http://www.vivaperformance.com/forge...s-850-s-c-v70/

    With the cost of the pistons, forged rods, shell brgs and gaskets etc this little project mite take a while to complete.

    But should be able to take some serious bhp

    At a rough guess i think i paid 380 for forged rods, 500 melhe pistons, plus rebore, belts etc and it all put back together i reckon about 1300 quid i paid and that's about as cheap as your gonna get.

    That`s the sort of figure I was looking at

    At the end of the day I will end up with a new full rebuilt engine

    Having just been through the process - I was kinda lucky with the forged pistons - in so much that they came from an abandoned project. 81.5mm forged wiseco pistons cost me 500 quid. The rods (as recommended by Smithy) - K1 technology from Co-ordsport - were 500 ish. Donor engine - is not a problem as you already have one. A local cylinder head specialist refurbished the head & rebuilt the refurbished & rebored block for a very reasonable 1300 quid

    The head that was on the engine has 6 bent exhaust valves so I got a refurbed head from Dalhousie and I will rebuild the engine block myself as I`ve done a few in my time

    Removed the main brg shells today and checked the brgs journals for size.

    The brg journals are standard size

    The block has a B stamped on it for the brg classification and I think the crank has a C stamped on it for the brg classification,
    So in the Haynes book of lies the brg shells should have a yellow mark on them but I can`t find any marks but I did find some part numbers,

    Thrust brg 9146180 and 9135850
    Main brgs 9146170 and 9135840

    Can someone check/no a web site that lists the part No. to confirm brg sizes

    Do you mean 380bhp/550nm? Surely after all that work the engine could take a lot more?

    The K24 finally arrived from chad, so after work today I went out into the garage and test fitted the turbo on the engine.
    As the S60R manifold is still on the car so I used the old 850 manifold.
    Had to re-shape the oil feed pipe as the V70 block doesn`t have the 3 inspection covers for the piston oil injectors.




    Also I`ve started to polish the inlet ports.

    Haven`t done much to the engine rebiuld for a while,

    Managed to get hold of 4 B4204T5 pistons ( 4 more next month )



    Had some spare time today so I`ve tapped the PCV return hole ready for a 1/4 bsp blank and machined up a plug to go in the main block vent.
