I'm going to pull the motor from this 2003 93 B 205. The motor started ticking pretty badly soon as I'd figured out all the other problems with the car. I'm not sure if it's lifters or if it's valves but I have read that there's no adjustment on valve lash. I only paid $1,000 for the car so I'm not really worried about the money. I decided a long time ago that I wanted to rebuild an engine from scratch for my other 2001 9 3 . I have yet to ever build an engine from scratch. I've done it in school but the engine didn't actually have to run. It was just a matter of stripping it down putting it all back together. It was far from what I would call a real build. I know I've got a lot of research to do on my own but my question was am I right in thinking that I'm going 2 need a crankshaft from a 2.3 l and the Piston rods to match. But my question is other than that is there more that has to be considered. I had talked to someone that I had met up at the Euro Parts in Windsor he had a Saab 9-3 hatchback like a 2000 and he had done that build and turned it into a 2.3 . I remember he had one problem that required him to rip the motor down after the build. I think it had something to do with the crank shaft being in wrong. I figure if I'm going to build it from scratch and I definitely want to do that why not make it a 235. Thanks appreciate any help end any resources you guys might be able to point me to.
