The author would strongly recommend that further stripping (crankshaft) and inspection is carried out professionally. The cylinder barrels and heads, the pistons, crankshaft, camshaft and crankcase should be taken to an automotive engineer for proper inspection and measuring. There is no point in rebuilding an engine with renewed bearings, piston rings and so on if there is excess wear of or unseen damage to any of the retained components, because the life-span of the rebuilt engine would be greatly reduced –perhaps to just a few thousand miles. However, those who feel qualified to attempt the work themselves will find all the necessary details in good workshop manuals and the best of luck!
