KT17 Rebuild?

Recommended Posts

One of our winter projects will be a KT17 Series II refresh or if necessary a rebuild. Haven't done one of these engines yet. Beyond checking and rechecking all the components for tolerances and damage is there anything in particular to watch out for? The engine has a little over 1300 hours and ideally we would like to be able to get away with a simple hone and re ring. Is this wishful thinking? New pistons and boring run up the bills pretty quick.
