I have a 164 24v with a knackered crank, and I've been offered a rebuilt 12v bottom end. Can I rebuild by grafting all the 24v bits onto the 12v block?
Thanks for any help!

Hey Boss,

It is a massive undertaking and time-wise/financially just not worth it... I have a good set of heads for tat 12 valve bottom-end (assuming that it is a 3.0) for you or somebody else to use on another project!

Send me that 24 valve bottom end - we can fix it and keep the 24 valve ehads on it! There are "ways" :rolleyes: (unless the crank is in half!) You can email me at [email protected] or call me a 425.941.4747

Cheers

Thanks JJ, but I'm in Scotland! The shipping would be prohibitive!
Why is the change more than rebuilding what I've got?

The coolant passages are different, so unfortunately not. But I wonder how much machining it would take, or if a thicker aluminum head gasket could realign the passages? But then you would be better off just paying for a new 24v block.
