No that process is usually applied to cranks, Like I said if the crank is bad (spun rod bearing) it's junk. Somtimes you get lucky and can find a good used crank cheap. But I caution you some sellers cannot read a micrometer and have no Idea there crank is bad.trailrunner said:remanufacturing as in weld up and turn down correct? Any idea on how much a rebuild kit or parts that would make up a rebuild kit cost?
Fog, why no gaskets? Are these engines milled that well?BTW You wont need any gaskets don't buy any. no not even the head gasket.
He says that because most of the gaskets are reusable. The head gasket is steel, meaning it will never "blow" and a "blown" head gasket indicates a warped head/ cylinders. Lapping the head/ cylinder surfaces to make them flat and throwing a coat or two of krylon on a cleaned head gasket should be enough, but since the head gasket is steel and not compressible, those mating surfaces better be true.Fog, why no gaskets?
