open engine queston
well lads iv an rb25 there that as sitting in my engine bay with a bonnt over it for a year or more with no plugs or coilpack.havnt tryd turnin it over yet didnt want to do to much damage. is the engine salvagable? havnt got a loan of a bore scope to see how the walls are yet. just wanted to know if anyone else on here ran an engine after that lenght of time in them conditions
Id say first things first get some oil down the cylinders and let that stand for a while just incase the rings are stuck, then try turning by hand
folowed by ign turnover then a cheap ass oil change and then try to fire it.
If its fucked its only cost the price of cheep oil.
oil whats that going todo?
put it in gear and rock it back and forth make sure the bottom pullys moving. if soo go for a start up. If your worried all inside is fucked spray some wd40 down the bores. thats it
Squirt wd40 down bores and leave for a day
Turn over by hand with socket and breaker bar on bottom pulley, or rock back and forth while in gear. If it moves, proceed...
Fit plugs and coils, fire it up.
