    I have just bought a 20th anniversary with a blown motor . It would seem that it has run bearings . The engineering shop told me the bores where oval , although when I measured them they were not far out . Where do I find the bore and crank journal specs ?
    I want to build a " blue printed " standard motor . Using std pistons and rods ( ARP rod bolts ) and just get what is there optomised . I will balance the bottom end . Maybe lighten and polish the rods .
    Might see if there is any easy weight that can be removed from the flywheel .
    Any advice on building such a motor would be much appreciated . I want to keep it as original and std as I can .
    Anyone lighted std rods ?

    i wouldnt bother with the standard rods....would fit forged ones for relaibilty whilst its apart

    there is some weight to come out/off the crank - we had a few in work that were well machined off the counter weights

    if i was doing one would be forged rods / lightend crank + flywheel (all balanced) better one piece valves inlet/exh better finish to ports etc would even consider first size overbore as well

    Thanks for the reply

    PEC rods seem to have a bad reputation ? What else is out there ?
