I'm paying for my stuff I got by rebuilding this engine for Andy also it a good learning experience. It going on one of his show tractors. 

 

I got the head pulled and the piston pulled out today. Got to take it and get the cylinder mic to see what it need to be bored to.  

After I get the quote I will finish stripping it down.

Just for reference:

 

I think the guy I use would charge retail $75 or $80 to do that bore.  That includes fitting to the piston and honing so it's ready to assemble.

That doesn't sound too bad...Thanks for that info.

I got the flywheel pulled off but the cover under the flywheel isn't coming off. I think someone used rtv on cover.

The block is at the machine shop. They measured it and said the bore is so worn down they can hone to spec instead of boring.

After getting the timing right we got the piston and rod back in but the rod at to much play. We mic everything before the install I don't if we misread the micrometer or the rod is worn.
