Reconditioned EBII Engine??

Hey all,

I was recently thinking about getting a reconditioned engine for my EBII (I6),
my oil rings are starting to go, making it burn oil and blow smoke at high revs.
My engine has done over 270,000km's.

I wans't sure whether it would just be cheaper to fix the rings or get a reconditioned engine. The engine it self still runs fine, no problems i can see and it still has the power.

If anyone could give me rough estimates for how much a reco engine will cost or even just getting rings replaced. If i am to get a reco engine, im looking at just the engine nothing else (short block i think).

Thanks in advance,
- Ace

Re: Reconditioned EBII Engine??

to put just rings in you would need to get it honed as well and once youve pulled it apart youll need the block surfaced if its not straight, the head too and new big end and main bearings too. so basicly if your pistons are still good you can just get a re ringed bottom end. it will be much cheaper to do this but if your pistons are stuffed it will be more.

Re: Reconditioned EBII Engine??

How much work do you want to do yourself?
You could do it, depending on what neds doing, for as little as $500 (W.A. prices, anyway)
Over here you'll usually expect to pay $2k for a recon motor but could do a full rebuild, boring, balancing, etc, for $1k provided you do the work.
