Re: Oil User
You can do the work, I have seen a few overhauls done by others. I am not saying you cannot do it, I would recommend that a shop who works these do the job. If the counterbores need repair then ???///. Honing the liners is not recommended. You can buy a 'liner kit' which includes the 3 'o' rings. You can buy the skirts,domes,rings, bolts if needed ect. I personally would recommend a cylinder kit as it has all the goodies already there. Use new head bolts, new cam bolt, recommend the replacement of the seal in front of the cam,[special tool there], Change the rods/main bearings,new oil/filters. think about rebuilt injectors,cam bearings,think about water pump,/turbo. Ask your local DDA distributor for pricing and warranties. If you even suspect that the block is damaged from electrolis, a 3/4 engine or complete reman engine can be ordered. Ask for prices and warranties. Make sure that you have a warranty IN WRITING before teardown. DDA shops have specials all the time, Some specials even include a cylinder head in the quote. Yes, I work on them. Sorry I don't quote prices, I just fix them, or debug them.

It is said if you sit by the river and watch the water flow by long enough, your enemies will pass by. This I believe to be true. It is also possible to watch your loved ones pass by as well.
