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. With this video, I am not suggesting that everyone reuse their old piston rings. I am only doing an experiment to see how they hold up. That way others can judge on their own if they need to replace their rings while working on what ever project they may have. I do suggest cleaning the rings better then I did in this video. I do suggest that you replace the rings if you're inside a motor with 160k miles on it. 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 UPDATE 8-16-14: This motor is running strong. Here's a video of me abusing it: http://youtu.be/AwovZwPUOHY ========================================= 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: 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.)

How To Check Piston Ring End Gap.MP4
Piston ring end gap is and important measurement to verify during engine assembly. Do this to ensure that the ring ends won't butt during engine operation and damage the cylinders. Also keeps cylinder pressures more consistent from bore to bore which means better effiiciency and power.
