Robbie and I tore down my new-used motor this afternoon. I will post pics later. At 170k the HG was in the initial stages of failure. But the bottom end was in good shape.

Tear down went blindingly fast by Robbie - I was just the helper. If I was doing this all by myself it would have taken me 2-3x longer. Even just the one drive plate bolt where the head stripped was out in short order by Robbie and the grinder - and once the bolt head was off, the rest was finger loose, that could have cost me an hour. I observed several professional grade techniques I had not seen before.

I am glad the motor seems to be in good shape. I am also glad you are doing the HG. better to do it now while it's out and easy to get to.

curious to see some pics too.

The head itself had never been opened and was fine except for carbon and dino oil gunk.

Where Robbie is pointing is a failure starting at #6, also shown in photo after.

#1 was also starting to go.

But, the cylinder walls were fine.

Looks like they kept the oil changed in it. Looks nice.

Not suppose to be on both feet, I am on one mostly, with a outrigger with the other. It does take it toll on the right leg, can only do it for a couple of hours before I hurt one way or the other. Did not even think which finger I was using in the photo.
