Default Breakfast Nook F Engine Rebuild

Hello Everyone,

For those of you who have not heard I am embarking on journey to rebuild a "F" engine in my Breakfast Nook. I figure what better place than a climate controlled environment, with surround sound. I have never rebuild an engine before but figured I have some time and a few extra dollars. I am planning on boring it .40 over, installing a RV cam, and the rest I'll figure out as I go. Thanks to James for helping me get it, and thanks to Ige, and Kevin for agreeing with me that this would be a good idea. I am going to start to strip it down, so it is easier to put on the engine stand. Thus allowing for it to be wheeled into the aforementioned location. Pictures will be forth coming.

But I know they will come, and I can't wait. I took a '78 Subaru boxer apart in my bedroom one winter when I was a kid because the garage was full of my brother's 3 Fiat X1/9 hulks, and I have attempted several times recently to park my Bonneville in the living room, but the will have none of that noise! Have fun, take your time and roll your engine stand on a good tarp...

Isn't it better to get a 2f and rebuild that? than a F? Ditto the "my wife would kill me remarks"

First Cruiser anything I did was rebuild an F motor in the bedroom at our house in college. Rolling the engine stand across the wood floor with the motor on it made some nice tracks, and the carb cleaner we used to clean everything fried my brain.

That F motor will run great when you rebuild it and you'll love doing it..

Edit:

I just thought about this..

I was eating dinner with one of our Docs the other day and his music came up. He always carries a travel guitar with him no matter where he goes and usually works on the music he's written each night... I have always thought that was cool. Anyways, he was telling me that he finally worked out a deal with a local restaurant.. he plays the music he's written there two times a week. I told him that I have no idea what that'd be like.. to play something you wrote in front of a bunch of folks, but that it must be pretty cool. He said "Marco, I'll make an example with something you could probably understand... it's like hearing a motor you built from scratch fire up for the first time".

I thought that was cool as hell... not being musical at all, I can relate to that It is a great feeling.

My understanding is that the 2F has better oiling, but the F is still a beast. I use to have a , and I am far better without her. I'm not going to get rid of my stuff any more for a . I was a good boy and still got the shaft so it's ME time

Have some striping down to do, then have to make an appointment to get it cleaned and bored .40 over. If there is anyone that people have good results with or someone that is a well-versed in the F please let me know.

This is an exciting project Kevin. For the block and head machine work, I'm sure people with first hand experience will chime in with where they got good results.

I have my feet on the coffee table in my living room as I type.....just think if there was an F engine in here instead.

You are a fortunate man ( a man's man) D Schlegs! No really I think it's cool, I just could not pull that off!
