Im a the point of rebuilding the engine, as soon as Nissan order the various gaskets and crank bearings!
Ive cleaned the block and head, and tbh it looks better than new, so fits in well with the rest of the car Im going to use assembly lube on cams, crank etc but I wont be starting the car to possibly next year or at the very earliest october ish this year. Im worried about internal rust mainly on the bores, whats the best way that I can prevent this? I dont want to chuck loads of oil in the bores and cause glazing on start up. I did think about leaving it all bagged up, then build once ready but would run the risk of loosing parts and possibly damaging machined surfaces.
I read somewhere on a american hot rod forum about using vaseline, but would this harm anything when started?
My other worry is im putting new rings in, read somewhere that your not suppose to let it idle for too long with new rings installed, need to drive it under load to get the rings bedded in quickly, this will be a problem due to having to go for MOT before I can drive it anywhere. Will it harm it leaving it to idle for a while?
