Chev 2.5 Engine Overhaul the second

I overhauled engine #1 in January 2000. I overhauled engine #2 in November 2002.

Obtain an engine Bought an engine "with a bearing knock". Turns out it had broken rings and a bent pushrods. And yes, the mains didn't look so good either. But the engine had not been overhauled before (but someone had fitted a new piston, different from the rest). 40 thou bore, 10 thou on the mains and big ends.
