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

Good decision. You are going to get a lot of fun & satisfaction out of the project - a new engine will be a bonus.

If you haven't already, I strongly suggest you check out Porfin's thread about his ongoing rebuild of a Perkins 4108. Obviously the specific mechanical info will differ but there are lots of tips & tricks he is doing that will transfer to your Atomic Bomb.

Have fun, take lots of pictures and keep us posted.
