View Full Version : Rebuild kits

08-02-2005, 04:31 PM
Does anyone have a ballpark cost for Lark engine rebuild kits?
I haven't even started digging in to my engine yet, but the boss [8] (wife) is afraid to let me start because of possible cost issues. :( I just started back to work so money is still tight. I can do almost all the labor myself, but the parts still have to come from somewhere....

I would like to upgrade old style seals, etc. to help prevent as many unwanted leak issues, etc that I can.
Anybody have any suggestions? :D

Check out page two of this forum under the topic "V8 Rebuild" by JDP.
He lays out cost for the V8 rebuild he's doing.

Now done. Just a bit over a grand to do if you don't need a bore and pistons, a bit less if the crank does not need to be turned.
