Re: $6,600 to rebuild Atomic 4? replace/rebuild

Thanks Sloop,

I already had the crank ground down, and purchased the appropriate sized bearings to accommodate the new size. I bought a set of engine brushes, so I plan on going through the motor with them and ensuring all the gunk is clear and no remnants of glass are present. As for the rod honing, I'm not familiar with this procedure...the mechanic suggested that I hone a few pieces of the motor during the rebuild, but I haven't researched the specifics on this yet.

Thanks for the feedback, as for Porfin's posts, I have already gone through them several times and will definitely use his documentation as a guide in my rebuild...he did a great job outlining his rebuild!
