Reconditioning of the engine:

The engine was running smoothly and sounded okay, though it had a strange sound when run at idle, a remote knocking sound when cold, certain sparkplugs became green!! and at the same time it was coveret with oil. So I dismantled it and totally reconditioned the engine. I mounted a new timing chain with gears (the strange sound at idle), new pistons (knocking sound), new pistonsrings, the engineblock was checked to specs and found okay, boiled clean and the crankshaft was checked to specs, found okay and was reused with new standard size connecting rod bearings and new standard size main bearings, reconditioned cylinder heads (green spark plugs caused by antifreeze fluid), new oilpump, new fuel pump and of course a new set gaskets. Furthermore the carburetor was rebuild. Here are the pictures from the operation:
