BLOG 3: 74 series restoration - Engine Specialties Wairau
Once we had removed the engine head and pistons, we sent them all into Engine Specialties in Wairau to check them over and fix any necessary problems with the pieces.
With the pieces we sent in, they skimmed the head of the engine, cleaned the pistons and the big end bearings and also replaced the piston rings. Since the broken piston ring was the initial problem for the compression, changing them all would be the safest option for preventing any more breaking. After dropping them off, they were done efficiently and quickly!
Heres a look at all of the pieces when we picked them up from Engine Specialties!
A huge thanks to Engine Specialties for helping us out with our engine needs and doing such a great job!
Have a look at how they did the engine skim and behind the scenes of their workshop over on our TikTok @motomuck
