Engine Rebuild

Postby dune runner tbird » Fri Dec 18, 2015 11:24 pm

I live in South East NM. I need someone to rebuild my 1600 DP. I would like to make it a 1775. I have been told that you have to have some machining work done on the casing. Does anyone know of someone in Albuquerque that has a good reputation of being a good motor rebuilder?
Thanks for any advice

Well, since you (ragtop) are the only one that said who I need to send my motor to. That must be the place to send it. If I just go with the 1641 is there some one in Albuquerque that is a good place to get that done? I am going to call Rimco after the first of the year to see about what the cost will be. I do not have to do it right now but I want it ready for next summer. I am putting it in a fiberglass body dune buggy. It has tacking me 3 years to get it ready for the street and dirt. I have a few other hobbies. I just got it registered last month so I can take it out on warm days now.
thanks again for any help

When you line bore a case,if the tool used to do it is not kept to spec your engine will usually lock up within the first 1000 miles . Ask me how I know !!!
