Got some more OEM stuff like dowels, pins etc., and some galvanized bolts and washers (as a kit) for the oil pan.
08120-61010 , 11046-73402, 08915-1361A, 11053-16A00, 11024-K0100, etc. (and the bolts & washers).
I’ve finally sorted the alternator out, I’ve replaced the bearings and it doesn’t squeak anymore. Let’s hope it charges well *fingers-crossed*.
I’ve finally finished refurb’ing the PS pump. It was full of solidified deposits of PS fluid.
Got my forged pistons today, CP Carrillo 83.5 mm oversize, 8.5:1 standard compression ratio. Pretty sexy.
Got the new OEM crank yesterday, along with some misc pieces , more specifically oil pan seals, an oil pick-up strainer o-ring and the Woodruff key for the crank.
Oh, and a bearing for the power-steering pump (notice the funny name).
Clevite-77 rod bearings got here (and a pilot bushing for the crank).
I’ve cleaned the oil squirters / jets today, removed all the scale and deposits that were present inside and gave them a good sandpaper job on the outside.
Also, in the past weeks I’ve been refurbishing the alternator. Before I had a chance to disassemble it, it was making a loud squeak every time I’ve spun it.. Now, after I’ve cleaned it thoroughly, greased the bearings and painted the covers, it still makes a faint squeak; I might be forced to change the bearings and/or brushes and see if the problem persists.
Cleaned, de-rusted and painted.
