had grand daughter over weekend,not a bad thing, so i had minimal time to deal with engine but i did find that rod was ok ,but play with rocker so ,i am definitely pulling intake and replacing cam and lifters.
i have a 2 week old timing set in front
so the dismantling will be easy ,i had a practice run.might pull oz heads while i am in the mood and replace with 2v D1A2 400m heads i have laying around which are brand new rebuild, bigger chamber but ok till i freshen up the oz heads.that will buy me a head start on the rebuild of oz engine.
all parts mentioned are things i have already so no cash outlay for now.
i am hoping to park car soon and totally go over drive train. so until then , a mild top end revamp ,then some real performance build over winter.
