James Condon on youtube redoes a 15 hp Lifan that had a nearly seized connecting rod and blown head gasket along with an errant exhaust valve lash cap. This video shows a lot of good engine internal clean up details. The one area that I differ on is the way he clearances the new connecting rod bolt. Rather than notching the oil wiper in the crankcase he grinds the end of the connecting rod bolt. All said if you have not be inside the large block clone this gives you good idea what is involved for a basic rebuild on a hurt engine.

The OMB gasket arrived today. Really a nice quality piece that fits like a glove

More on the 212 valve cover gasket story. I had ordered a laser cut 1/16" Felpro material gasket from an E Bay supplier. It must have been from an earlier version of the engine so it did not fit. The seller asked me to trace the cork gasket I had and send it to him. He received it yesterday showed me a copy of that he made. I asked if he could improve the areas where originals had failed. So he programmed his laser cutter and WOW this version really looks good. He sending me the first 2 of his new 212 units and when I receive them I will post pics here.
