GTE Engine Rebuild


A 250GTE engine block and heads came back from our machine shop this week, so I started putting the engine together. The liners were removed, checked, cleaned, bored, honed and installed.


We’re rebuilding two 250 engines this winter with the same size pistons, so our machinist made a piston installation tool for us. This makes installing pistons so much easier.


After installing the main bearings and crank shaft, and checking the clearance of the thrust bearings, I installed the 1/6 pistons.




Please find time this month to pledge to to help pay for the time and effort I put into creating and maintaining this website. As much as blogging has become a part of my life, I hope this website has become a regular stop on the internet for you.  Showing your appreciation once a year during my annual pledge drive means a lot to me. Thanks in advance to everyone who donated, and I look forward to another year of Ferrari Adventures!
