Cylinder block: Magnafluxed for cracks and checked for any visible damage to the block or threaded holes before being repainted to the original color. Each cylinder is honed with the specified cross-hatch pattern after the block is bored, decked and chamfered
Crankshaft: Machined on a fully-automated crank grinder for consistency and critical tolerances, given a final wash for cleanliness. All oil galley holes are chamfered and brushed after machining
Connecting rods: Measured against stringent specifications for bend, twist, and center-to-center length. The piston pin bore and bearing bore are measured with air gauges for proper dimensions and installed with new torque-to-yield rod bolts and nuts
Cylinder heads: Resurfaced and completely inspected for any visible damage or cracks. Valve seats are machined, inspected and replaced if necessary. Valve guides are inspected with an air gauge and replaced if necessary. Cam bore is checked and machined if required. Cylinder heads are assembled with brand new valves, seals and lifters, all plugs and fittings are replaced with new pieces to protect against possible coolant leaks.
This engine is spin tested to ensure proper oil flow, pressure, torque and compression.
All sealed units are tested for oil and coolant leaks.
