That is nice looking work. In my travels I've heard that diesels are harder to rebuild than gassers but I have no direct experience. Aside from a rebuild I did on the V4 I took out of my totaled '67 Saab 96 to put in a Saab 95 (station wagon) I found cheap with bad motor.

Did it with advice from my dad over the phone. It ran well enough when reassembled but I have no idea if I did a really good job. Probably not a highly demanding engine to rebuild.

I was able to sell it at a decent price few years later, I forget how much.
