Case matching without teardown

So my e50 has been totally rebuilt new crank,seals, bearings, clutch. I didn't have a dremal at the time. Now I do. is there anything I can put in the case so that I can dremel without teardown. or do I just need to bite the bullet and tear it apart again.

Re: Case matching without teardown

i would tear it down again or you may end up having re install all that stuff.

Re: Case matching without teardown

Taking it apart is best, Jesse. You really can't get it clean enough, stuffing, IMO. You wouldn't want any shavings, coming back to haunt you. You would need to use new gaskets. You might want to clean up the cylinder a lil' bit too, while its off there ;) Good luck! , Brent

Re: Case matching without teardown

also where can I get a good liquid seal for my case halves?

Re: Case matching without teardown

brent what do you mean clean the cylinder up a lil'bit. to?

Re: Case matching without teardown

Any auto parts store will have " Permatex" Form-A-Gasket & Sealant. 1A

Re: Case matching without teardown

If you have a harbor freight near you, go there and get a tube of High temp RTF sealant. Put a bead around the case halves right before you bolt it together. Works like a charm and a tube will last forever (or until it dries out on you)

Re: Case matching without teardown

Ive done this dozens of times on all sorts of cases. Stuff some paper down in to the crank then melt some paraffin wax in a double boiler, pore the melted wax over the paper and there you have it, perfectly sealed. after your done dremeling, wipe out the shavings with a oily rag and hit the wax with a torch for a few seconds, the wax plug will fall out and after you remove the paper you have a perfectly clean case. you don't have to worry a bout any left over wax because its petroleum based and will simply act as a lubricant if any is left behind.

Re: Case matching without teardown

I always clean up the ports Intake/Exhaust and open them up, to match my set up. Set the gaskets on the studs, take a marker and trace the inside of the gasket onto the cylinder. Remove material where it is shaded in. Make a happy transition from tracing, to existing portal opening. And Don't go into the cylinder port opening window!

This is really kinda why you want to match the case, right? Flow! From intake, to case, to exhaust! A Happy motor it will be. When it is all done, it will be worth it. Brent

Re: Case matching without teardown

brent it has a k-star kit on it, 19mm carb.

Re: Case matching without teardown

but I guess I should match my round 19mm intake to the square port on the k-star.

Re: Case matching without teardown

Brent It is doing about 45ish right now without the case matching.

Re: Case matching without teardown

It doesn't hurt to check, to see if it matches. If it does, Great then!

Re: Case matching without teardown

You will feel it breathe so much smoother. And have the peace of mind, that it is a proper working engine. Its all in the details.

Re: Case matching without teardown

I know. I feel incomplete with out it being matched! Also you should see the new seat I had made. Fucking beautiful!
