What's the best comprehensive rebuild kit available in the usa for a'77 4g32 engine (timing chain , no balance shaft). I'm wanting a more or less standard spec engine rather than high performance and I'm cheap. Does anyone have any suggestions? I also need a right front window glass for a "77 colt wagon that looked identical Raptor Reed"s before it was re-sprayed a lighter blue.Thanks for any assistance.

Can't help on the glass, but for the engine parts, I think you can still source a complete rebuild kit from a parts store, but you can probably get a better overall price getting it piece by piece either through fleabay and or Rock auto, especially if the parts are on closeout.

dont buy a kit, get acl bearings if you can, but I'm not sure they even make bearings for the 32.

Get a piston that was produced in japan. I've heard stories about the pistons elsewhere not taking the revs. That will probably be your only option anyhow lol.

You basically just need to look around and gather parts though.

ACL make bearings for any engine you can think of, pistons as well. No stock 4G32 piston should be revved above 6500 ish, they are not designed for it and will die. If its stock use find cheap pistons and be happy
