Remove the pine sap, was all over the car, next step is to buff it, inspect cylinder #1 & #2 with borescope trying to figure out where the knock is coming from. Compression test on all cylinders, verify timing. Previous owner had the head done so need to verify workmanship of the valve job and ensure that PO line up everything with TDC. Car runs but make no power so lots to look at and test.

Bit of progress today, got the car up on jacks, tagged the wiring, removed the front end.



Rad support has a bit of rust but will clean up nicely.

Picked up a G60 68mm Autotech pulley and a water pump pulley from a Vortex member in Ottawa, well turn out I found G60 heaven.



This guy is an engineer and a G60 enthusiast, has his own personal stash of G60 engines and parts tucked behind his automotive parts manufacturing warehouse. I know that there are better engine than the G60, but the uniqueness (which is the attraction for me, everyone else does the engine swap) of this setup is taking what works G60 (when properly maintained) and making it better with more flow through the engine (16 or 20 valve head). Tried to work out a deal on this 20V. G60 that he built for a customer and bought it back. But unfortunately it's not for sale was his first build for a customer and kind of sentimental about keeping it.



He also has 4 brand new AEB blocked for a very reasonable price plus tons of other parts, he's also a Mahle piston distributor. One stop shop for G60 parts LOL!

Hey Jack, thanks for the tip... I need a few odds & ends for my G60 and it's nice to have a source in Canada.

That 20V looks sweet!

Bought two brand new (0-Kms) AEB blocks (not the one in the photo LOL) with the crankshaft and intermittent shaft installed in them. One will be to rebuild the PG engine, stock rods and piston will fit in the AEB block, a AEG head gasket is required to fit the PG 8v head, a hole is drill thru the block at one of the thread bolt holes for the G60 oil return and were good to go.



Second block is for a 20V. 1.8L G60 build. Also purchased a DRS oil pan for this build.

I've found a use AEB head for cheap for my 1.8L 20V G60 build, so going to have a look at it next Saturday when I get back from work. Only draw back it's a 5hr drive from home, but if it works out be worth the drive. Planning on rebuilding it since price is right, seller sent some pics:









Also found for cheap a BBM Stag 4 chip, upgrade FPR, 265/260 cam for the PG rebuild, in the same area as the AEB head. thumbs up

Pick up my parts in Ottawa today, two AEB block, DRS oil pan, AEB valve cover, header for the AEB head. He also has a brand new AEB head that I'm try to work a deal on.





One of the blocks is going to be used to replace the PG block all of the internals piston, conrods, oil pump and distributor fit on the AEB block, a few mods are required for the g-lader oil return, g-ladder mounting bracket needs custom plate, turbo oil supply blocked and a AEG head gasket to fit the 8V head to the block, head gasket also seals off three oil journals that aren't used with this head.

Second block for a 1.8L 20V G60 build.
