    Engine rebuild ?

    So as most of you know I had a failure last weekend. Turns out that the flywheel bolts sheered off and I'm left with a copper mess. I have a few options at this point and I cant seem to make up my mind. Post up what/why you think I should do it one way or the other. Info is always a good thing

    At a minimum I would tear it apart to make sure the whole thing is cleaned out. Then you can see how much damage was done by the bolts and copper. Depending on how bad the damage is it will tell you what route you need to take. First off I am thinking CP Pistons at the least then the lightened flywheel.

    What caused the flywheel bolts to sheer off. What's the plan to make sure that doesn't happen again

    the lighweight flywheel is the only thing i can do to lessen the load on the bolts.

    I'd spend the extra money and get the carillo rods and a block guard.
