the in frame kit should have new pistons and liners matched as well as bearing inserts.. since you never spun a bearing you shouldnt have to turn the crank

I haven't pulled pistons yet to examine bearings. I'm hoping I don't have any spun. I don't have the means currently to pull a 1500lb engine out of the front of the bus, nor do I have an engine stand to remove the crank to have it ground.

Harbor freight has a 2000lb engine stand on sale for $125. And their 2 ton engine hoist is only $220.

It might be easier with a forklift though.

It is doable, but would be easier on concrete than gravel.

When you get it running again, lets talk about an Ohio/Michigan/Indiana rally. I think there are quite a few in the tri state area and it would be great to meet fellow converters, and a lot of fun.

I am all for meeting up. Hoisting won't work where I'm at currently, I'm parked in my back yard about 30-50 feet from concrete unfortunately. If I manage to sell my car and pick up a cummins ram pickup I'll be able to pull her up to the concrete and consider pulling the block

We had some unusually warm weather this weekend so I ended up pulling pistons. Crankshaft rod journals look in pretty good shape. Pistons 2 and 6 were pretty badly scored.

Sleeves are a great thing. Now I just need to figure out a plan to get them out.

I'm hoping that since the rod journals are in great shape, none of the main bearings will be spun

ive only ever seen sleeves yanked with a tool made for the purpose.. I saw it done on a Semi truck engine once and they were in there pretty good..

wonder if someplace like sunbelt rentals or such would have a tool like that..

Some of my teachers suggested a seal driver with a Jack. They only have to move about a half inch to pop them past the oring and then they slide it easy from there
