I haven't disassembled the motor yet - still planning and figuring out what I'll need to order.Have you stripped it down to the bare block yet, Bubbles? I'm curious as to what you find the cylinders look like. I've read on some of the 2.4 rebuilds out of PT's with over 200,000 miles on them that still show the cross hatch marks in the cylinders. I've rebuilt several engines in my days, but have NEVER seen any of them with the cross hatch marks still in them. But in all fairness, I've never rebuilt a 2.4. Last rebuild was over 20 years ago and was an late 70's 318.
I also have 2 motors for the PT - the original and the replacement in it now. Both motors have never been rebuilt though so I think I might rebuild the original motor that is already out of the car and then just be able to drop it in rather than pulling and rebuilding the motor in the car now.
