47 Cub Evaluation Saga Continues

Postby ctltmp » Sun Jun 21, 2020 7:51 am

Before I split I decided to pop the head off and get some measurements on the cylinders just to see what I'm gonna face later ( no broken head bolts yay me). I already planned an in frame rebuild so I didn't bother checking compression.

I'm measuring 2.6350-2.6355 on every cylinder. I figure either it's worn .010 or bored .010 over. I don't recall seeing .010 over rings anywhere. I guess the next thing I'll do is pop out a piston and measure it.

Update: pulled #1 piston. They are standard piston. Remeasured, 2.632 at top, 2.630 at bottom. Ring gap .032 (with the old rings).

Rods have. 020 under bearings installed.

Happy father's day by the way!
