I finally got around to taking my 142's B20F to the machine shop a few weeks ago and picked it up yesterday.
I really didn't need to take it, it turned out. Still takes standard sized pistons / rings, rod & main bearings. I had them replace the cam bearings and I'll be putting in a new D cam, lifters & push rods.
Spent a few hours cleaning & masking the head, priming it with some VHT high temp primer, which I cured with my heat gun. Then I gave it a couple of coats of Volvo engine red that I bought from a local Volvo Penta dealer in St. Charles, MO.
I will start on the block & cranks tomorrow.
