Rebuilding the other Toyota 4AGE engine - you remember we got two for £100 and stuck one into ED...
First a bit of cleanings!
Handy thing about having oil fired heating is that you can fill a barrel with it as a parts washer... At less than 40p per litre it's a bit cheaper than Gunk too :)
Then when the really big scabs are off, you can brighten things up no end using the parts washer in the kitchen...
The block was a bit heavy for the dishwasher, so had to just scrub it a little in the 'keg-o-oil' to get a decent finish
Quite a nice amount of valve area in the head :)
Test build of the engine.
New bearings in and bottom end put together, so there's no need to have it on the engine stand any more.
However, it would be handy to have some sort of way of stopping the engine from falling over!
Cams timed in, belt covers in place and sump painted a fetching shade of black.
