Building a 3rd Gen

Postby Smaay » Tue Apr 14, 2015 1:50 pm

I posted this on 6gc, Had to share here too

Lets start with the block, freshly painted and honed

Image

Image

Image

Here are all the main components of the engine. This is after I removed them from the engine.

Image

Here are the old piston rings. Take one of them and break it. Then use it as a scraper to clean out the ringlands.

Image

Image

Image

Here is the bottom side of the block. You can see the holes where the oil squirters go.

Image

Squirters and bearings installed.

Image

Image

Crankshaft laid in the block

Image

Image

Main caps installed, you can see the markers on the caps indicating order and direction.

Image

Image

Image

Back to the pistons, here they are after cleaning them with a scotch brite pad. You don’t want to use anything more abrasive.

Image

Image

This is the top of the piston. The little circle on the right indicates forward to the front of the engine. The 3C is the size of the piston.

Image

This tab indicates forward, this is if you ever take the rod off the piston so you know which way it goes.

Image

Image

Piston with new rings installed.

Image

Image

Im sorry I didn’t get pictures of using the ring compressor and installing them in the block. Here is the rod cap with new bearing and lube.

Image

This shows how the rod cap is aligned on the rod.

Image

Image

All the rotating assembly done.

Image

Here is the front of the engine.

Image

Other than worn rod bearings, the internals were in fairly good shape, so I rebuilt the oil pump instead of replacing it. Much cheaper. You need to open the pump and replace this gasket.

Image

This is the pump shaft seal. It’s really easy to replace.

Image

Image

This is the back of the pump. It’s a pain in the ass cleaning off the old gasket. I considered a bead of FIPG instead of a new gasket, but since I had one, I used it.

Image

Front main seal, this gets pressed into the oil pump before installation, its easier trust me.

Image

Image

Installed new water pump. It comes with new gaskets.

Image

This is the rear main seal. It’s the same as the 5S-FE

Image

Rear main seal pressed into the housing and then installed on the back of the block

Image

Image

These 2 o-rings can be purchased at any auto parts store. They come in a kit of multi sized. These are #116. They were about $1.30 each.

Image

Block ready to install the oil pickup and windage tray.

Image

Image

Image

This is oil pan #1, FIPG applied around the boarder.

Image

Oil pans installed and oil filter.

Image

Image

These are new o-rings for the base of the oil cooler.

Image

Image

This is the o-ring that goes between the oil cooler and the base.

Image

Oil cooler installed.

Image

Image

New Thermostat.

Image

New head gasket.

Image

This is the part number for the ARP head studs.

Image

Top of the block ready for the head to be installed.

Image

Head gasket laid on the deck.

Image

Head set on the deck. There are several ways to do this but this is how I do it. The head will not allow you to drop in the head stud washers with the studs in place. So what I do is stage the head. Then lube up the washers with ARP lube. Then drop them into position.

Image

Image

Image

Image

Then what I do is lube up the nuts and threads on the mating threads of the stud.

Image

Image

Image

Sorry I didn’t get a pic but the top of the studs have an allen key hole. Thread the stud through the head into the block finger tight. Then go through the torque procedures. Starting from the middle out in several steps. I started at 40lbs, then 70lbs.

Next is the shims and buckets. I numbered all of them so I know where to put them back.

Image

Image

Image

Lube up for cam install.

Image

Again I missed a picture but the caps are all numbered and have an arrow pointing to the front like the main caps.

Image

Image

Installed the hard water lines, you can see the new HFH (hose from hell)

Image

Image

Mount the back timing cover. I really don’t like the 3rd gen setup. The top section mounts to the valve cover.

Image

Image

Install the cam gears.

Image

New timing belt tensioner and idler bearings.

Image

Image

New timing belt installed.

Image

Image

Image

This thingy that helps keep the belt from walking out.

Image

Lower cover installed and crank pulley.

Image

Verify notch on pulley at TDC. Turn the crankshaft 2 times and ensure the timing marks on the cam gears are still aligned.

Image

Image

All Done.

Nice work! I have to ask though, why did you reuse that one hose on the oil cooler?

Nice work. Did you inspect the part of the block known to be weak?
