Beef attempts a rebuild...

Here is my free b234 block.... I am trying to assess the damage. I was told it was ran with out oil. Car was sold with a bad engine to a shop, shop did a swap and gave me the old block to me as a if you pick it up, its yours. The engine was running at time of swap.

When I picked it up, it was in pieces in boxes... her she sits on the stand:


bottem end:


Top end:


Crank:


head: (not touched yet)


Cause of failure? Balance shafts look like poo:


Cylinder 4


Cylinder 3


Cylinder 2


Cylinder 1


and the bad....: this is on the center bearing for the crank shaft...

due to that center crank bearing thingy on the block (the big worn hole) is the block a total loss?

Also, can I just power wash this thing to get all the crap off of it?

How does one pull the balance shafts, they are being stubborn.

Looks like a spun bearing? You can clean out the center bearing oil feed holes to see whether the passages are actually blocked. I'd fish out all the crap and take off the two thrust washers, which might have fused a little.

You might have to get the bearing surfaces machined, but I'd talk to a tech about that.

that crank definitely needs work.

it may need too much off to be usable if you can feel the scratches.
