    Gentlemen, take care of your balls...

    I have a welder that I take the cranks to, He gets them out for me.Then I tap and plug the galleys closed.The factory drills the galleys from the rod throw to the main journal. It is the passage to allow oil to the rod bearing.

    1G Bad align bore?

    What JAM Tony said.Its not a small block, so they basically do not what to do it.Cutting the main caps is not much more difficult than cutting the caps on a SBC.Short of the block being busted into 2 pieces, it can be machined and fixed by a shop that has the knowledge and experience.

    Gentlemen, take care of your balls...

    They do.. then shrink when they cool, so the ball ends up smaller than when they started.I have no clue if there is a vid or not. I never made one.I have done about 300 cranks like this, so it works. Not just 4g63 & 64 cranks, But Honda B & D cranks, Nissan RB 25 & 26, SR20, KA24Along...

    2G Evo 8 cams in 7 bolt

    What cam gears are you running? the Evo or the 7 bolt?IIRC the cam alignment dowels are drilled in a different spot on the Evo VIII cams than a DSMSo you end up having to make your own timing marks for the cam gears.But the Evo VIII cams are not a drop and go.Also did you bleed down your...

    my rod bearings need a bevel

    If you have a 7 bolt crank with 6 bolt rods1) you need 7 bolt bearings 2) make sure you have enough rod side clearance.6 bolt rods are wider at the big end and have to be machined down to fit on a 7 bolt crank properly.

    Its a waste hanging forged pistons on stock rods, 6 bolt or otherwise,With a 20g and decent tune, the NPR 63DT will support that.The reason the other 3 cylinders could be low , is bigger cams and/or the timing belt off a tooth.At 84k miles, The timing belt was changed once.Pull the...

    A leak don needs to be run... it could be a slight bent valve in #2 causing low compression.

    1G First engine rebuild- Looking for input

    That all depends on how tight of a spec they use.Some shops are good with a 1g +/- of mean weight (up to 2g from highest to lowest) Most pistons fall in this. Others use a a .5g, So 1g high to low, Most the time forged pistons will fall into this.Few go as tight as .1g or .2g from high to...

    1G First engine rebuild- Looking for input

    Thats the common run gap, you will be fine with that.Some shops do not balance the pistons, but adjust the small end weight of the rod to balance out the pistons

    Still have some honing questions

    I have done hone and go, builds and full bore builds both with and with out torque plates.Maybe I am a bit to old school, But I would not ever drop new rings on an old cylinder finish.

    Still have some honing questions

    The tem "honing" is a very loosely used term.If you stick it on a drill... thats a deglazeYou bolt it in a machine, and can actually remove some metal, Thats honingYou can not get in much trouble with either a 3 stone hone or a Dingleberry hone Neither applies much outward pressure to the...

    1G 1g 7 bolt head on a 6 bolt block

    Doubtful it had had anything to do with the bearing failure in the block, the crank gets oil before the head.The only headbolt hole that matters for clearance is the oil transfer one, the one you call the tear drop.The main reason to ream out the other 9 is so the head dose not get stuck on...

    DKS lifter shim install

    It hard to say, depends more on if the head has had a valve job or three in its life, and what the valve tip height is.If it is sitting close to the max tip height, then the shims should not be needed.If they are closer to min height, then the shims will be needed.The exhaust side is...

    1G ALC Bearings problems!!!

    4.5 bar in the head?IIRC 1bar os 14.7psiSo 66.15psi in the head?What is it at the OFH? Should be knocking around 100psiIf it is, then the oil is moving too fast thu the bearing face.
  36. BogusSVO


    Some H beams will be up to the task depending on how aggressive you tune and rod speed, (RPM)I like the BC line of rods, they are the closest in matched sets right out of the box. Also if you build the 6 bolt, BC has the "swap" rods so you can run the 22mm wrist pin.

    1G ALC Bearings problems!!!

    Looks like the crank "polished" part of the the center main bearing. Other bearings have spots showing this also.Line bore is off, or you installed main caps from another block. Or less likely, the mains of the crank were ground on a taper.Still looking for what your clearances are on both...

    How did you confirm "crank walk"?What is your measured crank endplay?You stand better than even odd that the crank is junked due to damage on the thrust face.Best thing is to get the engine out and apart, and go from there.

    oil leak

    You have 2 oil pan bolts that bolt the oil pan to the housing, if one bolt is a tad too long, or too much RTV gets packed in the bolt hole it will break.Since to replaced the rear main seal, did you lube up the inner lip of the seal before you installed it?
  46. BogusSVO

    oil leak

    Check the rear main seal plate. They can get a crack and allow oil past the OD of the rear main seal.Or an oil pan bolt bolt popped a hole in the plateOr the rear main seal plate gasket failed.Only so many ways oil can get in the bell housing.
