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.
My main bearings have just arrived from the US, MAHLE Clevite-77s .
Just bought the first out of many needed OEM parts for the rebuild: 13023-42L00 and 13022-42L00, those being the crank pulley plates.
I’ve refurbished the camshaft caps today, E1 to E6 and I1 to I6, meaning Exhaust cap 1-6 and Intake cap 1-6 respectively.
I’ve finally finished painting my rocker covers, not before cleaning them on the inside of all the oil deposits and gunk.
