    RE: Rebuilding your engine.

    I should have known you would ad something. Every post someone makes you try to top it. Enough is enough. If you thought it was such a good engine building article you should have posted it along time ago. I am trying to help people out. There is no need to try to repost or add something all the time. If you dont like what I post just make your own please.

    RE: Rebuilding your engine.

    here is something that guides don't tell you. Check the conditions of your bearings. Rear bearings that fail... lead to a broken crankshaft in a hurry.

    If you are running with a higher performance engine and/or higher quality engine, you definitely want to inspect the "tolerances" of your connecting rod. If you get too much slop, its going to eventually kill the engine. Many companies recommend that you replace after break in AND after every 3 gallons of fuel. After 3 gallons of fuel, inspect those bearings too!

    RE: Rebuilding your engine.

    sombody has a rebuild of a cen .16 motor forgot his name but he has all the pics and info in the gallery. The motor is basically the same exact thing so i would go by his rebuild guide until this one is fixed just type Cen rebuild in the gallery search
