After I gave the paint some time to dry, it was time to give the internals a wash down. For this I was advised to use dish washing liquid with water, once that was done everything was given a wipe with engine oil to prevent any surface oxidisation.
The crank journals were given a good clean and main bearings installed.
Before the crank can be installed, the clearances need to be checked using Plastigauge.
Once you have the clearances checked and within recommended specifications, it's time to pull it apart, clean and than re-fit using assembly lube.
In the next episode, I hope to have updates on the ring gaps and final assembly =).
