    Missing head dowels

    It is not likely that the mis aligned head would cause you to spin a bearing. I guess potentially the oil port from the head to the block was partially blocked off causing a higher then normal oil pressure which could help bearing fail. Dont really think that is reasonable chance to happen.

    Hey Sam,I just pulled a front cover/pump off a 98 GSX engine. It is still in a pile of parts and uncleaned/unchecked. I am busy for the rest of the day but tonight ill tear it apart clean it and see if it is in good condition. The engine had 60k miles on it, and didn't ingest any bearing. Will...

    I dont know if it is unpopular opinion but you will be fine with an aftermarket pump. Just watch your oil pressure if your worried about it.

    1G 1992 1g dsm no start

    Also to consider is that if you are using a 2g head with a 1g block, I dont think the CAS will swap. So unless you also changed the front cover/CAS set up, that is likely your issue. I think your ignition is inverted at best, potentially a lot more issues than that at worse. Also obviously DSMPT...

    Uneven bearing wear

    Its worn beyond use in my opinion. It is likely showing signs of not fighting tightly. It ingested something, probably parts of you bearing. I dont think you should re use it.Also I could be wrong here, but that fact that at least half of your oil opening were blocked off leads me to believe...

    Uneven bearing wear

    It is definitely a decent heat mark. The fact that it is pretty evenly spread across the rod, and cap I would almost guarantee that its gunna need some machine work/checked.

    Oh for sure I don't assume everyone is OCD as I am. I definitely don't want to make it seem un achievable. The more time you take now though, the better you will sleep for the next 1000 miles you drive ;) At the very minimum I would clean everything that oil touches at least once super well...

    I am not disagreeing with what people are saying about cleaning it out, however. With THAT much rust in the lines I can almost GUARANTEE you that the block has had some of it structural integrity compromised because of that rust. I dont know if id suggest spending all the time and money and...

    2G What in the.. Can anyone tell me what this is?

    Yeah he is correct above me. At the very least your going to need to disassemble and clean everything the coolant touched. A lot of the aluminum parts should come back clean with time and effort. However with the Head im not sure how you would clean out the coolant passages well enough. I...

    2G What in the.. Can anyone tell me what this is?

    The issue here being not so much JUST the block, but in fact EVERYTHING that coolant touches is likely need replaced. Oil Cooler housing, Head, Block, radiator, turbo, thermostat housing and sensors, over flow tank, heater core, all the lines. Im likely forgetting something.

    Hey bud I noticed there is a guy on Ebay currently advertising it for 1g chips only. Is there a reason this is done on 1g only now? Again my goal was to get in the car and have it be 99% "stock" even tho I have the 2.3 and the Big 16g. It seems after reading up on evo 8 Maf and the Evo Injectors...

    Awesome man, I was able to get my local Napa to press in some bearing for me for SUPER cheap.

    I would say that if its the ONLY thing on your car you need fixed right now. Sure. That is a lot of money to fix a lot of small issues. You have 80% of fixing it on your own done. You will have to pay a shop to press the bearing no matter what. The rest there is no reason you cant do yourself...

    the inside of the bore, as in the round part where the bearing will sit feel very smooth. The only real thing my finger hangs up on is where the little cut outs and edges are.

    Fully dis assemble it, clean everything well. Check each piece for damage. Replace any damaged pieces. Have a shop press the bearings in. Re assemble it yourself. Re clean it. Fill it. Use it. Maybe paint it before you use it.
