MI16 bottom end nearly done.



Rebuilding for a customer (on a very tight budget) an MI16 bottom end. The engine will be using a new set of Kent Cams supplied by the customer - hydraulic profile. Personally I would want solid lifters but it does increase the budget considerably.  That said the hydraulic operation cams mean the rev range is limited and therefore the build can be done as a "standard" rebuild. New liners are being fitted with new Main and Big End bearings. The top end and final assembly are being undertaken by the customer.

The block was chemically cleaned before being acid primed and then primer coat. Top coat to follow next!
