Block building questions
Posted 23 November 2005 - 04:26 PM
I have the pistons, rods and rod bearings.
I shouldn't use used bearings right?
What is a good source for main bearings and rings?
Are aftermarket rings okay...those Topline kits you see on ebay for instance?
Will it need honing...i guess i can just look to see if it has crosshatching already?

Any parts store/dealer will have them, make sure they are of a known brand.
Never heard of topline, so i dont know.
It has probably been honed, but yeah, have a look.

if the crank spec's fine and the block is new, then standard sized bearings should be fine to use.
piston rings? anyone ever use those gapless rings on the EA82?

They don't have thrust washers, the center main bearing shell has a thrust bearing face on it.

This supplier is great for oem parts
main bearing set from japan for $30!
I have never had to buy bearings for any subaru rebuild so far.
Run them hard until you see copper!!!!!
i like them as well, i buy most of my parts from them and was planning on the bearings from them as well. thanks!
buy never needing bearings, do you actually check them somehow? you reuse them? for $30 i'll just buy them, but curious about rebuilds since this will be my first.
thanks all this should be funning learning...

Thrust 'washers' are untigrated into the main bearings.
