New Pistons and Liners
Hello...I mentioned in another post here that will be embarking on renovating/restoring my daily driver 1750MKII after over decade of basically trouble free motoring. While i have everything off the car I was pondering what I should do with my engine. It has a little over 6000k on a fairly extensive rebuild. Pretty much everything was replaced other than timing chains and the original Pistons and Liners. When I did the engine work the Pistons seemed to be perfectly serviceable so I didn't replace them...maybe I should have for what they would have cost. I hate to pull things apart so soon after a comprehensive rebuild but maybe this is the time to do it. If so I wonder about putting in a set of Alfaholics forged HC P&Ls. And maybe do a proper port and polish...if I combined that with a new stainless steel exhaust I might have a pretty nice little engine...with a bit more hp. It already has new performance cams with the appropriate carb re-jetting. Everything else in the engine should be in good shape i would think new bearings,thrust washers,valves, guides, cam followers,seals,springs,serviced and balanced Crankshaft...I think it should be good in that end of things...maybe the valve springs could be replaced.
