I've had my triumph 2500 engine re-bored, and the crank re-ground. I have purchased new pistons and rings, and I will purchase new big end bearings when I know what size the crank has been ground to. I may possibly buy a new cam, in which case I will buy new followers also. I will order a new duplex timing chain kit at the weekend, and also some assemble lube. Not sure yet weather to buy a new oil pump or not, I need to inspect the old one.
Is there anything else anyone can think that I will need to buy ready for assembly? Are there any special tools that will be required such as a micrometer?
This is my first time assembling an engine block, so Id appreciate any guidance, or tips anyone can offer, as id like to get it right and not cause any damage as this rebuild has cost me over a months pay.... And before anyone tell me to take it to someone who knows exactly what they are doing, I would rather wreck it doing the best I can myself than get someone else to sort it - If I don't ever have a go, ill never be able to do it.
Thanks in advance,
(Ill post this in the spitfire forum also as thats where most of my threads are, and the engine will be going into a spitfire)
