Building the Perfect Engine.

Tom:

Great that you started this thread. I requested a subforum for this subject, so perhaps one of the moderators can move this up.

I am very interested in getting the type of bearings that you purchased. It sounded like you were combining bearings from two kits. I also know that you are doing engine builds for some other folks, so if you want to go in on splitting a kit let me know.

I'm still going to work on the copper head gaskets for the build. Have not heard crap from Mr. Gasket. Anyone else who is interested in gaskets let me know. I would kind of like to wait on the final order for gaskets since different folks may need slightly thicker gaskets from stock to make up for any milling required depending on the condition of each individual motor.

Done some investigating on ARP head bolts. 8 of our 16 head bolts are identical part numbers to the 4 cylinder engines, for which there are kits (12 in a 4 cyl kit). The other 8 are completely custom to the SVX engine. I may take some measurements and see if ARP will put together a kit for our car. Anyone who is interested let me know.

On the motor machine work front, I may go ahead and just plan on sleaving the motor with dalton ductile iron sleaves. If I can talk the shop into it I would at least like to get the deck semi closed. They were not thrilled with doing a fully closed deck. Mike thinks it would be too difficult as well.

Lets start posting and getting this stuff together.

See ya

finally io have a day shift off... Calling the machine shop NOW!!!

Chuck, I am using the bearings off an ej22t motor... Need 2 sets of main bearings and 2 sets of rod bearings... Since I am doing 2 builds, I ordered 4 sets of main bearings and 3 sets of rod bearings... Mike has the part #'s just make sure you buy tri-metal bearings and not aluminum

I second that. I'd love to see an engine build subsection under the mod mania forum and this could be the first thread in it....though the title of the thread should probably change to "omg somebody is building an eg33 and they live in the USA"

"OMG somebody is building an SVX engine and putting it back in an SVX"

Tom,
I've got the Clevite bearing numbers for the rod and mains. Did you take a micrometer to your crank first, or did you just order the oversized bearing figuring you'd have the machine shop turn the crank to fit?

I'm pretty sure Tom ordered standard bearings.

Bill, do you have your flow bench working?

Michael,

Interesting...can't wait to see what the clearances will be with standard bearings and a probably 100k+ mile crank...

Yes. Looking forward to running my heads on it once I get them back from the shop

Did you run a stock head yet? Want to run one of mine? I can send you one with a different valve seat configuration that is supposed to flow better to test....then you could send it back to me so I can do the exhaust ports and send it back to you to retest.
