New bearings, piston rings, and gaskets. We will rebuild it, we have the technology (6 million dollar man theme song playing in background)

So i am ready to order the new parts. Does anyone have suggestions on what brands or who to go through to do that?

The major parts i need to order are the main and rod bearings and piston rings and since i hear a lot of hit-or-miss stories about them, a head gasket. I can source the rest.

I forget what HG i have at home.. will check brand but i have been told its the best stock gasket to use. not sure on bearings and rings. I have total seals for my 85mm pistons but imagine OEM would suffice?

do you still have a spare head for sale?

Alright, ive been looking for parts and i began by comparing specs. What i measured is a little off from what i found in the specs.

Cyl Bores are all right around 3.328" (84.53mm) Spec is 3.311" (84mm)

Pistons measured out to 3.324" (84.42mm)

ConRod big ends are all around 1.890" (48mm) Spec is 1.772" (45mm)

Crank Rod Journals are around 1.770" (44.9mm) now the weird part is every spec i found for the rod journals says .858" (21.79mm) so whatever.

Crank main journals are 2.340" (59.43mm) Could not find the spec. But it already has .050 bearings in it so im guessing that spec doesnt matter.

Does anyone know where i can get custom sized bearings and piston rings?
