There can be many reasons for tearing your engine completely apart:
- Installing a big-bore kit that requires machining of the crankcase
- Repairing the transmission, crank, or other major component
- Replacing main-bearings, or other internal bearings as part of a complete overhaul
- Welding on the crankcase because of accidental damage
- Dropping a small part down into the engine by mistake. Yeow!
What was my reason? I did a big bore project. As is my habit, I kept detailed notes, took pictures, and along the way I talked to a lot of folks much more experienced than I.
