Rebuilding an engine is a complicated process. It takes skill, patience and know-how. First the technician removes all plugs and cleans all components. Next, s/he inspects the oil galleys. This is to make sure that when the engine is restarted, oil flows to all crucial areas. The rebuilder inspects the block for cracks, and re-bores the cylinders up to the next size. Next s/he installs brand new pistons, rings, bearings, and sprockets. The technician re-grinds the camshaft, installs all new plugs and seals, plus a new timing chain or belt. S/he also installs brand new pushrods, rocker arms, and lifters; and a rebuilt or new oil pump.
The technician also works on the cylinder head(s). This includes resurfacing the valves and installing new valve guides. S/he also pressure and vacuum tests the head. The tech cleans the motor again before reassembly, then adjusts the valves again, and checks oil pressure and cylinder compression. A final inspection includes listening for revealing noises and looking for oil leaks.
