I'm looking to fully rebuild an XE for a mate as his engine came from a rolled cav and when being removed the oil pump snapped in half! for this reason i think a rebuild wouldn't hurt as he is looking for reliability.
The parts I had in mind for the job were:
idler pulleys and tensioner,
bottom end gasket set,
cam cover gasket and seals,
would the rod bolts need changing?
If you can think of anything else i should replace please let me know,
if anyone has any good prices and anywhere that they can recommend to get the parts from please let me know,
