Kevin's Engine Overhaul Project

Engine Assembly: Cleaning parts

A dirty, but necessary task in assembling any engine is to clean those parts not cleaned by the machine shop.

All parts were cleaned with spray can brake cleaner and blown dry with high pressure air. About 10 cans were consumed.

The original camshaft and lifters were reused. The camshaft was cleaned as described above. The lifters were wiped off with a clean cloth and installed in their original bores.
