About 80% repaired. Welded, with the mating surfaces milled. One part (a bushing for the snout) was actually bent all to hell and has to be remanufactured from scratch. This is something they can do. But the shop has actually been so busy they had to reloacate to a larger location, so $0 projects for cousins get a back burner location. In short it's coming along, but in a pause at the moment.

Depending on other money stuff I'll get the internals balanced, pistons cut, and buy new bearings ASAP. Then we can actually put the bottom end back together. A good step.

Didn't the motor only have a few thousand miles? Take a page from the book of Enkei and throw it back together as is. Replace only messed up bearings and the rings if they're not in good shape.

Piston tops have to be fly cut for the much larger valves in the new heads. Removing material from pistons means re-balancing internals in Vettezuki's book. While the motor is fully apart, replacing slightly worn bearings is in Ron's book.

With old bearings the "crush" may not be as it should.
