    Soooo ... another project enters my garage, this time it's a FN2 CTR :OTT:

    This ones has been heavily bottomed, inflicting heavy damage to the sump and the bottom end.
    Owner insisted that he enlist my services to fix the car ... how could I refuse huh

    I'll start adding pics and documenting the progress as the project progresses.

    can't wait to see what you find when you strip it down fella,

    if the bottom end is creamed crackered it would be best to rebuild the entire engine or a new donor.

    PS try inserting the images directly on the forum you can use your photobucket URL and then the image will be stored on our server.

    Head looks fine.

    Block is busted, not much to salvage from it.

    So I've asked the owner to source a complete bottom end or complete replacement engine.

    The engine looks well maintained no sludge or dirty oil traces that bottom end is truly shattered and shafted. I would be looking carefully at the top half of the block for fractures and damage .

    It wil be a miracle to save it .. You making a list of broken parts bud? It will be long one , that sort of whack will have unbalanced the crankshaft for sure.

    Normal for the piston crowns to get carbony that is fine.
