Third Report of Work Done - Grayson, Georgia Stop
April 10, 2001
The engine from the Charity AMX has now been disassembled, thanks to George Doughtie and Ron Waters. They found that the bearings and lifters were shot, but the block, rods and pistons all are in good shape. The block will not have to be bored, just honed and vatted for cleaning. In the next few weeks we will be reassembling the engine. Parts that will be needed are bearings, rings, lifters, timing set, (not sure about the timing cover yet), water pump and I'm sure there are more. We plan to supply most of these items, but if someone wants to donate one or more, we will gladly accept.
We do need an oil pan and don't have one readily available, so if you have one that you are willing to donate, let me know. I am waiting on one person who promised a flywheel. I also have someone else who indicated that they would look for a clutch setup, so hopefully they will find one and send it to me.
The list below, is everyone that has donated to the car since it arrived in Georgia. If I have left anyone out, please let me know.
If you have anything that you would like to donate to the project contact me, all my information is in the signature. I will keep you updated as the engine rebuild progresses.
