Is there a comprehensive list of all the bits required for an engine build ??

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.

Many thanks.

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.

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

Split Pins for Rocker Shaft

Distributor Collar O Ring (A Series)

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.

Thanks SO much all, especially Mr.Moke Spider...

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
