“He did what in his cup?”

Posted by on 27 April 2014

Got the pistons pulled out.  I borrowed a ridge reamer from Autozone (yay for the tool lending program!) and carved off the carbon ring atop the cylinders, then unbolted the connecting rods from the crank and pushed the pistons out of the bores.  Thanks to the guys on the MML for telling me about putting fuel line on the connecting rod bolts in order to not scratch up the crank journals.

Hrm.  #1 cylinder piston skirt looks … not so good.

Hopefully that’s just cosmetic, but, presumably the engine machine shop will let me know after they tank everything.

Piston-less engine block.  Wave at the camera!
