Re: Replacing piston rings in AU motor
You can't give a estimate on a rebuild before disassembly.
We just pulled out a 351 clevo that bent 3 pushrods on the strip. Its for a friend of the boss so thoughts of doing it on the cheap came to mind but due to lack of momentary oil pressure we thought to pull it right down to check it properly. Good thing, the motor had oval bores, the valve springs were wrong, and someone smashed the pistons out of the motor with a screw driver and the pistons now bind on the gudgeon pins. This is not the same as you but you can seen what can happen upon disassembly.
