Engine Components List.
Posted 04 December 2019 - 12:11 PM
I'll hopefully be rebuilding a new engine in the new year and whilst waiting for the block/head to return from the machine shop I'd like to start stock piling all the bits I'm going to need to get it built.
I'm aware of the big stuff - cam, timing chain, ignition etc...it's the other bits and pieces that I'll need that without which will delay the build.
Spec is 1380cc fast road.

well you should have already got the cam and the valves and rods and pistons. I would hope that the bearings are being supplied by the people sorting/checking the crank.
so only really your gaskets etc.

assembly lubricants, thread lock, DTI & cam protractor for setting cam timing, swear jar ?

Plasters, and a Tea Pot, or cans of beer, along with a great big dollop of patience

Joking aside the Parts are not usually the big deal, its more the correct Tools for the job. I am sure there is a list on the site somewhere.. accurate Torque Wrench(s) and Feelers gauges and measuring calipers is my biggest issue

This is a list from a car build list that I use;-
Pistons - (set)
Piston Rings (set)
Big End Bearings
Crank Thrust Bearings
Big End Fastener Set - ARP
Cam Bearings (STD)
Oil Pump Drive Adaptor (if needed)
Duplex Timing Chain Kit
Countersunk Screws for above
Cam Off Set Key - Check Key Needed
Cam Thrust Plate
Crank Woodruff Key
Hardened Exhaust Valve Seats
Valve Spring Top Hat Retainers
Valve Stem Seals - Late Type
Copper Washers for Oil Pipe Banjo Bolt
Dipstick Tube (Metal)
Oil Pressure Relief Valve Kit
Oil Filler Cap – Sealed / Unsealed as required
Rocker Cover Grommets
Head Studs - Short
Head Studs - Long
Split Pins for Rocker Shaft
Distributor Collar O Ring (A Series)
VRS Gasket Kit
Engine Gasket Kit
Conversion Gasket Kit
Timing Cover Seal
Oil Way Plugs - Main Gallery (M14)
Oil Way Plugs - Cylinder Head (5/16" UNF)

This only really covers the Engine, just with the way my list is arranged, Gearbox, Flywheel & Clutch are not in that particular list.
I'd also have the Radiator Overhauled or a new one made, Overhaul the Carb and Overhaul the Distributor. To me, these items as part of an engine build, are not optional.

That's exactly what I needed. A shopping list that I can tick off as I get it.
Can't beat this Forum for help and advice.
Thanks again. Much appreciated
