I've gotten the engine torn down to the cam and balance gears! I've read to not reinstall the balance gears? Where is the best place to source rebuild kit for a oversize parts? This one already has a .010 piston .

I deleted the one thread with no replies and merged the other two into this one.Dave, a moderator could quickly clean up that little discrepancy. I guess we've all been new to a site and learn to navigate its quirks. Maybe I've got this boosted back to the top of WHAT'S NEW. Hopefully, Tim will come back to look and with a great, concerted effort, his rebuild questions can be answered.
Measure the bore at the bottom to be sure it's actually .010" oversize!Looking for recommendations for parts and gaskets? I need a set of rings for a K301 12 hp with a .010 oversize piston and a complete gasket set. The exhaust valve was rough at the seat so i've lapped it some but should I try to replace it or keep lapping till smooth? Thanks for the help!
Didn't we have this discussion not long ago? Anyway, in my humble opinion and experience high heat and VHT paint are just a fraud or sham. I've used spray can paints and automotive paints on engines for decades and it lasts just like hi temp paint and burns off near the exhaust ports just like hi temp paint. I couldn't really tell the difference.Moving forward with the rebuild! Now I would like to repaint the engine back close to the oem yellow. Are there any preferred high heat enamels that are close to original?
