How To Swap Pistons on Connecting Rod at Home - 4.8 Flat Tops into a 5.3 LS1
In this video I am pulling one piston out at at time from a 160k mile 5.3. This 5.3 will be going into my 1987 C10. I then show the removal of the dished 5.3 piston from the connecting rod and then the mount of used 4.8 flat top pistons back onto the connecting rod. Then the 4.8 piston and rod are inserted back into the block. This is all happening at home in my garage with basic tools. I do use a press to remove the 5.3 piston but you could easily use the propane torch for the removal by reversing the mounting procedure that I show with the torch. By installing flat top 4.8 pistons into a 5.3 the compression will change from 9.5:1 to 10.6:1. Edited 4-30-14: I just started this engine up last week. I did a compression test, it came back good. I've got a video of it running on the stand here: http://youtu.be/VogkaVNGkCU ========================================= Follow me on Facebook here: https://www.facebook.com/AGearHead4Life?ref=br_tf ========================================= Check out my other videos like this on the link below: http://www.youtube.com/user/AGearHead4Life

How To: Pressing Press-Fit Wrist Pins At Home
This video describes an easy method of pressing wrist pins into pistons. This method is better than using a hydraulic press because it doesn't put stress on any of the components. Of course, luck would have it that the pin I was pressing for this demonstration stopped short because I didn't have everything lined up perfectly, so it snagged and the rod cooled before I got it the whole way through (like I said, you have to work QUICKLY! :) No big deal though. The particular piston/rod set I was working on at the time was a set of Evo 9 pistons and 1G 4G63 DSM rods to be put into the block that is seen behind me.





How To Clean The Carbon From Top Of Pistons | Using Only Household Products
VISIT THE SITE TO SEE ALL PHOTOS AND VIDEOS ON THIS: http://www.mach1restoration.com/how-to-clean-the-carbon-from-top-of-pistons -using-only-household-products/ After pulling the GT40 heads from the 5.0 roller motor I discovered that the tops of the pistons were coated in a thick layer of black carbon buildup. The cylinder walls (bores) were in great shape with no gouges or burrs. This left me with 2 options. Option 1 was to disassemble the entire short block and replace the pistons and parts that were essential after short block disassembly. Or Option 2 was to try and clean these up and freshen up the cylinder walls. I chose option 2. I started by spraying the piston tops with the bathroom cleaner and I let it soak in for about 10 minutes. Next, I took an SOS or Brillo pad and soaked it in rubbing alcohol. I started to scrub and scrub until the carbon began to come off in places. This is a vigorous process that does require some old fashioned elbow grease but in the end the results are well worth it. Once all of the carbon was relatively gone off of the flat areas of the piston I broke out the air grinder with a brass brush for the valve reliefs The air tools are not essential if you want to take a little extra time with a brass bristled hand brush. Whatever you do, only use brass! After all of the carbon was clear I used the steel wool wet with alcohol and wiped down the cylinder bores and made them shine like new again. I gave the pistons a final rinse with alcohol and then vigorously oiled the pistons and the cylinder walls to ensure no surface rust would appear. I also sprayed them down with Ballistol (gun cleaner all natural) Anyone can do this with a little time and patients. Just take your time and you'll love the results!

How to: Assemble Pistons with Rods
In this quick video I show you how to put together your piston and rod assembly and get it ready for installation onto the crankshaft. Here are the current specs for my KA build for those who are interested: - .020" overbore - Wiseco .020" over forged pistons - Eagle H-beam rods - Stock Crank - No line boring or honing - Clevite Main Bearings (In my other video, I showed you how to choose the proper bearings for your KA. I'm going with the Clevite "standard" bearings really for experimentation purposes, to see how they hold up.)
