I am looking for a good source for a full engine rebuild kit (gaskets and pistons/bearings). What are some good companies? so far all I have found is re-ring kits or "performance" kits. It is a non turbo - and I would just like an oem rebuild kit.

The thing has major piston slap and leaks oil bad.

also - what about a clock spring?

thank you
sam

Actually i always bought my engine kits from JC whitney (all brand name parts), and in 3 engines i never had a problem. To ensure a proper kit match, you may need to take the engine apart first and measure the crank journals to make sure you get the proper bearings.
Also to cure piston slap you are going to have to get the two pistons that sooby uses to correct slap, otherwise your going to get it again.

clock spring will be a sooby part only
