Re: 8BA Piston Removal...Success!!!

Cost really isn't the problem at all. I'm not the kind of guy that likes to "fix" things that already working. My Y block just took a .020 cleanup bore nothing outrageous since I just want a...

Re: 8BA Piston Removal...Success!!!

I may do a full rebuild but I always find it cool when a "will it run" scenario comes true, within reason of course. I realized that I don't have a bore Guage but rather a telescoping Guage set. So...

Re: 8BA Piston Removal...Success!!!

Re: 8BA Piston Removal...Success!!!

Going to try a little cylinder honing this evening. I'll also check dimensions to see if it has ever been "reborn" / re-bored and if it needs to be now. Maybe a simple overhaul may be in order...

Re: 8BA Piston Removal

Well Mart, and any other readers, I tackled the pistons today. I checked the dipstick again and as I remembered the pan was dry. Since my engine stand was tied up with a Y-block I decided to tip...
