I'm looking to purchase an engine with a bottom end knock, with the assumption that I will be able to rebuild it with no previous experience, fitting aftermarket forged parts.
These are my assumptions based on the info on the advert and what I've been told by the seller:
- The engine has a bottom end knock, probably a spun journal bearing
- Replacing the journal bearings, conrods and pistons (+pins etc) will solve the problem.
- There is hopefully nothing else wrong with the engine.
Is this likely to be sufficient? What else can I look for if not?
