Newbie Forum - Beginner/newbie/general DSM modification questions. First mods, how to run 10's when you haven't run 12's yet, any tech question that doesn't fit in another tech forum.
Even if you could, when you wanted to put them back in... how would you get the ring compressor up in there?
Pull the head.
spyder.... I can not think of a single engine, 4cyl, V6, L6 or V8 that you can pull the pistons out from the crank side of the block
The crank/ main webbing is in the way on all of them, yes you may get a bit of the piston to slide out from the bottom, but then it will catch on the main webbing.
But I dont know much either, I have only tore apart 5000? 6000? who know how many engines in my life......
Baby numbers. You have much to learn.
Good info on the webbing. Just adding another chirp in there - Pull the head. Check the cylinder walls while you're there. It's likely time for a timing belt and head gasket change anyhow.
I can get the head off my car in 45 minutes, I don't really think it's a big deal.
