Rebuild Or Not To Rebuild!

I bought this EB 4.0L engine from the wreckers that is blowing smoke and has no compression for $200. Now Im going to do a total rebuild on it with a jim mock and all other new parts racing pistons etc, Will this stop it from blowing smoke and get it back to good as new???

$200 for a throwaway motor, he saw you coming!
Sorry but it's true

The rebuild will stop it smoking, provided as Tibbo said, you do the thing properly.
Bore, deck, grind and balance the crank. Face the head, even if you don't port it.

That'll fix it.

Re: Rebuild Or Not To Rebuild!

yeah $200 is pretty steep. You would want that to come with heaq, manafolds, fuel rail injectors, tb etc etc to make it worthwile.

Re: Rebuild Or Not To Rebuild!

for a short motor that you know is r**ted, with no compression etc, i'd throw a carton of beer their way..

It was worthless to them,, they are a dime a dozen BUT don't let it discourage you from rebuilding it.. I know dudes that have bought good running engines for 4-6 hundred only to strip them right down and rebuild them anyways

Re: Rebuild Or Not To Rebuild!

personally i would probally buy this one as you intend to do it up anyhow,, All you are paying for (on the rooted one) is the head, so spend no more that $100
