G60 rebuild- where to get parts from?

5 posts in this topic

So, I melted my pistons in my rallye. I am going to rebuild the engine, bores are poor, so I figured that I might as well bore out to 1.9

The 1H engine standard bore is 80.6mm, I am thinking of going to 82.5 or 83mm using something like the wossner pistons

Does anyone have any recommendations on where to get all parts? Pistons, gasket sets etc?

Are the standard rods ok? Not building an all out race engine, just a bit more poke.

Does anyone still do a '1.9 rebore kit' with all parts included?

Head. Any recommendations for a who does a decent porting job?

Bottom end balancing? Crank, flywheel etc? who to talk to?

I am a competent engine builder, having built many engines over the years, so I plan to do the actual building work myself.

Any info much appreciated!

I always recommend to go 9:1 CR and 144 mm H-beam rods. The longer rods gives you a better angle on the rods, and less wear on the cylinder walls.

Cheers, had seen them, but I am going full rebuild and boring out to 1.9 now so won't be needing standard anymore!

also, 83mm doesn't leave an awful lot of meat on the bores, especially as it's a forced induction engine..... 82.5 is a good overbore size for the 1H and PG blocks... :)
