In this, i've removed anything that was connected to the engine block, oil sump, oil pump, engine seals, crankshaft...The engine had a lot of RTV sealant, which became difficult to do my job in removing some parts, such as the oil sump and the oil sump plate.

i've arranged some time to finish the rest of the work, and removing the remaining parts, such as the pistons and connecting rods, and the crankshaft.
At first seeing the pistons seemed very good, just need to be cleaned.

I had a specialist looking at my engine, and he said that the engine was in very good shape, and that i was lucky to get this deal.
So, i am now in the process of cleaning and measuring all the engine clearances, but before this, there has some work that needs to be done.
I've also started to removing the valves from the head.

Everything ready

I´ve been working again in the engine, cleaning the coal on the piston, a lot of the dirty coal was removed, but there is still some in the valves cavities, that i will remove it in other way, by dipping the pistons into diluent or gasoline to get the coal soften and easier to remove.
Here's the pics


As they were before the cleaning

During
[Image: AEU86 AE86 - TOYOTA COROLLA Ke70 - Restoration project]

[Image: AEU86 AE86 - TOYOTA COROLLA Ke70 - Restoration project]

Almost..
[Image: AEU86 AE86 - TOYOTA COROLLA Ke70 - Restoration project]

Done (But still with some coal to remove in the cavities of valves)
[Image: AEU86 AE86 - TOYOTA COROLLA Ke70 - Restoration project]

I've been preparing the 2nd piston, today. Because, as i said before, i am using petrol to clean the pistons, to dissolve most of the coal, so it can be easier to clean it

As it is

And now, the SAD news...
The engine was sold, 3 weeks ago, because i am unemployed and i needed the money to other stuff, the engine went to Azores, and the new owner, is also restoring a KE70, like me, so it's in good hands.

I am now looking for a new engine, but i will only buy it in the next year, and i am thinking in a BEAMS!
