I broke down the bottom end of my block. Pistons look great and so do the cylinder walls! The harmonic balancer is cracked so I think im going to use the one from my 260z if it works. Crank is in good shape too. Next step is to rebuild the engine!
Things I need to get to put the engine back together
280ZX Piston Rings & 280ZX Main Bearings.
Timing Chain and Gears
After that we build the turbo system!
Finally got to tear down my engine and start the rebuild. My brother-in-law, Brandon, has a spot in Pico Rivera. I brought him my N42 Block N47 Head Motor and we took off the head to see what the Pistons looked like. He took apart my P90 head I just got along with a turbo manifold.
The motor has dished pistons and the block looked like it didnt have very many miles on it.
Next we pull the crank and check out the rods and pistons. From there we make choice for the build of the project. I am hoping to hit 300hp, but 350HP would make me extremely happy.
CAR OF THE DAY: 1st Gen 240z Early Series. This car was built by a man and his two sons from a home “Gentleman’s Garage” in pomona. The story behind this car was interesting. The car was found on Craigslist and was an original rally car. They purchased the car with out an engine and the fellas swapped and RB25 creating custom motor mounts done at home. Much Props
I enjoy when other classic JDM comes and shoes up. 1St Gen Toyota Celicas for sale, this cream automatic was nice. Lots of Engine Swaps and a few rebuilds. Everyone had a set of Enkei to sell. Gotta love the Black ZX on White Diamond Steelies.
