Its not common here in the states i had to special order it too. My tool trucks didnt even have it.
Lol i wont need them i got ARP studs on everything in my engine including the engine cradle and oil pan.Wow.. want to buy a double hex key 1/2” dr set .. and some sleeves?? Ha!
Pull the pan ima guess ur bearings r toast on the rods. Chances r ull need a crank too. Most likely chewed it up.Do you mean if I can crank it by hand? Yeah, it does so very smoothly.
Yeah, I'm thinking the same thing. I figure my best bet at this point is removing the sump, propping the engine, removing the transmission, and then having a helper lift out the block with me. Current replacement list looks as follows:Pull the pan ima guess ur bearings r toast on the rods. Chances r ull need a crank too. Most likely chewed it up.

How much of a gain will I see from that? If the total cost is under 2k I can get the car running again relatively soon, anything more and I'll be tarping the car for a few months.And if ur up for it i can port an polish the head depending on how long the car could stay downed.
Not bad at all, would be nice to pair that with a fresh valve train. I'll have to pass on it for now, and just clean everything for reassembly. Weather willing, I'll have the sump and transmission off tomorrow.In realistic terms id say 5-8% depending on supporting mods.

The exhaust casting flash really needs cleaned up and between the ports is so thick its insane. i open the exhaust a bit and bring the ports closer together and knife edge the area between the ports then clean the bowl and casting up and bring it closer to gasket size but still keep it about a 1/16 inch from the gasket to keep the nice seal and polish it out.I wouldn’t bother with the porting myself, any gains are not worth the expense. Yamaha heads are top notch from factory, most times you get a decrease when this is carried out, especially if you do it yourself.
If you pay someone with a flow bench and they spend a lot of time your gains will be negligible. A bit more when you add cams and compression to the build.
