    Top 5 "don't forgets" on engine rebuild/install

    I am one of the proud/few to have my SC frag my motor (after replacing ceramic washers etc) I pulled the motor and have ordered all the parts (should be here by next weekend) and am preparing for the re-assembly and re-installation of the motor. I have rebuild lots of V-4/6/8s in my day but this is my first 3 cylinder (I am still trying to get over the idea attaching pistons to the crank before mains!)

    So my request is that a few of you that have been around the block (on these engines) give me your short top 5 list of "don't forgets" (so I can look them up in more detailed tips in this forum).

    Thanks

    Try this attached, Keep in your mind (fly wheel bolts + rockers shaft bolts + connecting rod bolts + head bolts+ crankcase bolt) MUST change when rebuild

    I'd say use plenty of assembly lube. and just be SUPER careful when it comes to the crank and bearings, and get you timing right the first time

    build oilpressure before it fires!....get that lurbircating goodness on all of those shiny new parts....assembly lube is a only temporary.

    thats just general motor rebuild knowledge.....oil pressure is probably the most important thing to save an engine.

    On my car engines, I have a cut down distributer that I hook to a drill to bring up oil pressure without turning the engine... but I don't see how you would do that on these engines.... I guess you are just saying to crank the engine without plugs?

    Hold the throttle wide open and crank it. It won't start up.

    Hey, Why dont you post pics of your rebuild, just show everyone what you doing, Id like to see one rebuilt, and is the bottom case the main caps? thats odd. I never pulled the bottom off one of these, just head.
