Thanks guys :)
Again small steps further, cleaning of oil pan + pump:


Also bushings for engine upper mount finaly arrived so I have complete new engine mounting prepared:

And I have ordered new camshaft for front (left) head - I have already one for rear (right) head which still can be bought for "peanuts", whereas the one for front head is kind of tricky. Nonetheless I have decided to go with the new part (from Ajusa) and not send one of mines (have 3 of them already, all worn out :lol:) for refurbishment. So I'm curious how it will hold.

Some new stuff just arrived - new intake valves, valve seals, knock sensor, some piping...


And did some cleaning (not 100% but still better then it was :D)...

The heads are finally back - resurfaced, re-grinded valve seats, new bronze valve guides, cleaned old exhaust valves and leaped in, leaped in new intake valves, pressure test done.


Besides that arrived new middle exhaust silencer and some pipes. Also I have replaced heating readiator (since it was easily accessible with engine out of the car :lol:)
And this is how looks the cylinder no. 3 from the old engine - the one with which all started:

But also I have found out that the "new" engine has already had some troubles, this is how looks cylinder no. 5:

However I'm not to keen to put back cylinder like that - so I will put there cylinder no.5 from the old engine - I have checked and they're the same category, plus I made some measurements and difference in weight of set of cylinder + conrod + bearing + conrod bolts between new and old engine is 1g, which is OK I guess :wink:
Still, the conrod bearings look like that:

So I will put in new conrod bearings Glyco STD. Regarding crankshaft bearings I'm not sure about their status yet (have to take them out, have it on my to-do list), but most likely I will replace them as well - I just did not decided yet if I will use OEM (about which I'm not sure which of the 3 variants to use :D) or the Glyco STD as well...
