complete engine rebuild

So I'm planning a complete engine rebuild, 1.7liter to a 2.058.

So here is my list so far, what am I forgetting??

1.8 heads that Len Hoffman is redoing for me

96mm pistons from (although I have no if as to if they are dished, flat, or domed). Have found a 71mm crank

71mm used crank and rods
complete gasket/seal kit
new main bearings
new connecting rod bearings
new wrist pins,
new connecting rod bearings
New bigger oil pump
new camshaft bearings
new cam (not sure which one yet
New twin weber 44 IDF and throttle linkage
Oil pressure booster pistons
New fuel pump for carbs

Jake's video on how to rebuild an enigne, and probably alot of tim and mountain dew.

anything I'm forgeting?

The final displacement is 2056 cc. I just did the rebuild on the same engine.

If you go with pistons from you'll probably get the KB hypereutectic pistons which are flat top and come with wrist pins.

I would suggest going with a Jake Raby cam. If you're ordering his video you know about his website and stuff. I went with his split duration cam, the aggressive one. I havent fired my engine up yet though, so i cant tell you the results.

You're going to want to get a good oil pump. There are two routes. One, you go with a type 1 oil pump and get a modified cam gear. Two, you get a more expensive special type 4 oil pump. Since you're going to be getting a new cam gear with your cam, I'd go with a type 1 pump. All that stuff is available from jake also.

For linkage I would highly reccomend 's linkage.

You also need a gasket kit. Pelican has a good one, and so does

That list looks pretty complete. I cant think of anything else. Good luck!
