  1. thats all wonderful but no plastagauge to check tolerance no oil on rings or wrist pins dont offset rear main i dont use that molly cam lobe grease on anything but cam lobes and i will never wear gloves while building a engine  ya cant feel grit ol boy couldnt work at my shop i prime every engine built no lube under head bolts those two clean dry surfaces play hell with torque readings after torquin head and main bolts take a fat ass puntch and a 2 pound hammer and give the bolt heads a good wrap then re chech readings it just helps everyone kinda relax but hay i guess if ya trust everyone to do a perfect job everythings ok    but i would rather know what my bearing tollerances are perfect world or not 

  2. … with new complete motor rebuild except the heads , they LOOKED as if they had just came from the rebuild shop , why with only having less than 2000 miles and one oil change after break in oil and lube is motor burning oil , black , and smoke from exhaust ?? ..
    .. I believe oil being black is from car running too lean ..
    .. and to the bottom of the heads I only cleaned the up with 3m polishing discs because they looked like they were redone
    … any help .. input . Im now missing car shows

  3. Hi. At 10:20 piston pin circlips are being installed with needle nose pliers. I am not saying that this method is not "good enough". It probably is. If you Search for grafal anti-friction coating, at the top of the list is MAHLE North America | PowerPak pistons. In the left hand column of this page is a link to Tech Videos. Near the bottom of the Tech Videos page you will see manufacturer specific videos on circlip installation and pistons, etc. Personally, I much prefer their tools/techniques. Peace, John

  4. Since this is about a rebuild how about a custom build how do i know on what grade of oil do i use on the build either NA and F induction? And on grade of oil for certian tolerances
