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.

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:
valec_6_new_hit1.jpg

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:

c2_bearing.jpg

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...

Indeed they do :D
Small progress again - except for oil pan the bottom is done - all cleaned and put in new Glyco STD crankshaft and conrod bearings, new simerings and linner's seals.
Unfortunately I just don't have such nice pictures and it's not done as thoroughly as in case of Killergame's 164 :oops:

Hehe not as clean as mine indeed, but I put into cleaning of all engine parts like 1/2 of the hole engine rebuild time :lol: :mrgreen:

Still, great job! :D

BTW clean engine block edge where gasket sits very very good! And also top edge of cylinders where gasket sits. For cylinders I used very soft metal brush in drill machine. And for engine block inox spirale for dishes. Top stuff for cleaning aluminum!

One more thing! Buy new bolts for water pump. They are standard size M6 I think. I think they are 2 long, 2 short and 8 middle if I remember correct. :) Just take old samples of all 3 bolts sizes with you to shop.
